    .Net Framework 4 install failure

    Gentlemen,

    I don't suppose anyone has come across an error of "Installation did not succeed" when trying to install .Net Framework 4?

    When I click on the log file link it just crashes.

    I've used the Microsoft Fixit tool to remedy the problem but no avail.

    Is there anything else I can try?

    How are you installing it? Manually or deployed? And are you using the online or offline installer?

    Where and how are you trying to install .NET Framework 4 ? ie under standard AD user account, logged on as domain admin / local admin etc ?

    When attempting to install an application I generally have to goto the properties of the file and ensure under compatibility tab it is set to run as administrator under all users --> ensure I am logged on with domain admin account and also hold down shift and right click the setup file --> run as administrator then the setup appears to install correctly

    Does that help at all

    Also are you using the msi installer for .NET Framework 4 and pushing out via GPO / GPP to install on a number of machines or just the one machine where it is corrupted and not working etc ?

    Are you attempting to run a repair install on it or have you removed all the .NET Framework and then re installed freshly ?

    Sorry I'm all over the place at the moment.

    I've tried used my account and the domain administrator account. I have used both the online and standalone installer and no luck.

    This is a fresh install on a few machines, just using the online / standalone installer.

    I'm sure I've seen a .Net framework cleanup tool somewhere - have you googled it?

    Try downloading/installing the latest/greatest .NET 4.5.2 version.

    It runs everything .NET 4 and more, plus it includes lots of security updates.

    Using the cleanup tool now. Seems to be taking a while on the 'Collecting Logs' phase.
