    It shouldn't be happening. You'll have to analyse what it is that's causing it and see about fixing it. Hopefully someone else with more ideas will be along soon.

    Apparently if you don't have .net 2.0 sp1 you can't install 3.5 or 4; which ever you are trying to install. You do need to have the service packs installed however you shouldn't have to have .net installed to do so however you might be having problems with windows update. Try to full download:

    Download: Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Five Language Standalone (KB936330) - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details
    Download: Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - Five Language Standalone (KB948465) - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

    You must install SP 1 first.

    Re: Installing Microsoft.NET 3.5 problem

    About 3 weeks ago my computer failed to load at all, (Black Screen of Death), and after trying everything I couldn't get it to load, using recovery console I was able to get my data back so I have done a Factory Restore yesterday.

    I have now not only been able to install Microsoft. NET 3.5 but also SP1 and SP2. So problem solved!!!

    However I still have doubts about my hard drisk stability but that is for another thread.

    Yarddog, he states he couldn't install it. .net 3.0 is already installed but needs to be turned on under 'Turn Windows Features On and Off' which you find when calling up Windows Updates/Installed Updates and look over at the left. Doing that may trigger the updates to 3.5 SP etc. etc.

    I double checked this and yes "3.0 is installed out of the box. However old (& later) versions will still need to be
    installed." is what I found.

    Also as a previous poster states you may need to install .net 2.0 SP1 first.
