Error code643 - A network adapter at the server failed.

You do not have a problem on your PC p
What the error says is that MS had a fault at their end and the update was
not uploaded.

Bob, I have same problem. I downloaded the update manually as you suggested
and started the install. It started he execution but seems to have finished
within 20 seconds with no messages. How do I know if it did the job. I have
2 .NET Framework items in my installed control panel. One is version 1.1 and
version 3. Version 3 shows no date and if I highlight it it does not bring up
the uninstall opton whereas if I highlight version 1.1 it does. I have
attempted to uninstall version 1.1 and it goes through the motion but it
never disappears from the installed program list. Versions 1.1 and 3.0 have
always been there from the start. This was a Vista Business Upgrade to an XP
SP2 fully up to date with security updates. Ron

Check in you Update History and if the update is logged them no problem.
Remember it is an update not a replacement so the version No. does not
change.

Bob, I checked the update log and nothing shows for this update 929729 other
than previous failure to install thru the normal Windows Update. I reran the
manually downloaded file from earlier tonight and again just a flicker of the
screen and no entries on Event log or in Update History. Ron

Try the fix in the KB link below, it does not mention any specific update but
it may do the trick. Use the entry relating to update not being installed.

wizard to install this tool on your computer.

Step 2: Remove .NET Framework

suggestions to reinstall .NET framework 1.1 and the updates for it.

Step 3: Install .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package and related updates
==================================================
1. Please download the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable

Thanks Brew and all the posters since July. I just got it now and although
you have an answer, I've wasted an afternoon trying to fix it and am tapped
out. I tjhink I will wait till the Jan pack and see if Microsoft thinks it
is important and cares enough to fix it.
Thanks again

Thanks, DebbieC, for posting this solution. It worked for me, but only after I forced Windows Update to check for updates did the .Net 1.1 update disappear from the list.
 
#11
Ok. I am EXTREMELY frustrated about this. I get error code 643. It is because I try to use Windows auto update and it says there are two updates available. When I try to install them, it will not install them. The two updates are: Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x64 based systems (KB954430) and then, Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2
(KB941833). The first one is important, the second recommended. Now,.....I tried following the instructions about downloading the msicuu2 file and right clicking run as administrator. After downloading it and right clicking, I get a window that says:
Window Script Host with a big red x and then:
Script:
C:\Users|COVING~1\AppData\Local\Temp\IXP000.TMP\StartMsi.vbs
Line: 10
Char: 5
Error: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable
Code: 80070570
Source: null

So, that shoots that down. Now, I followed the advice of another thread and tried to manually uninstall the .net framework programs that I had installed. I went to control panel, remove programs, and right clicked and uninstalled microsoft .net 1.1 software. Then, I followed the recommendations and downloaded new .net software, but when I try to install it, I get the next cute little window (extreme bitterness here people) :
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1

Info 9006. This patch cannot be installed because it requires Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 (SP1). No Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP can be detected on this computer. Please see Description of the security update for the .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 for Windows XP and Windows 2000: July 10, 2007 for more details.

I am at my wits end. I hate computers now, forever. All I was trying to do was play some computer games on my nice new fast Gateway PC. I should have never even tried.

I am getting the same error code when I try to install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 KB951847 Tried the suggested fix above, but it had no effect. Any Ideas??

I too am getting the same error. I have tried all the things mentioned her to no avail. It's frustrating to me that this seems to me an ongoing problem and there is no fix yet.

I'd like to know the same thing as none of the things here have helped at all.


This error code relates to a "security update for Microsoft.NET framework
version 1.1 Service Pack 1. My Windows Vista has tried many times to
download this update and each time it has failed and reports error code 643.

What is the solution to this problem?
 
#15
Is this stupid update necessary? Why should I have to jump through hoops to install something that should work right from the start. If Windows cannot get their crap together, it is not my fault. Apple is looking better and better.
 
#18
None of these options worked and I am now getting frustrated and angry. Someone please help.
Is this also problem with KB95430?If yes follow below:

1.Run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges (right click on cmd.exe as administrator)
see here:http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/181765-elevated-command-prompt.html
2.At the command prompt, type ren %windir%\System32\msxml4.dll msxml4.old, and then press ENTER.

Note After you press ENTER, you may receive the following error message.
Cannot find the file specified.
Ignore this message, and go to step 3.

3. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.
4.Download & install manually hotfix from here MS08-069: Description of the security update for XML Core Services 4.0: November 11, 2008


If your problem address to any update for NET Framework 1.1 or 3.5
then solution is another:

1.Download NET Framework Cleanup Tool from here Aaron Stebner's WebLog : .NET Framework Cleanup Tool User's Guide

and using this tool remove NET Framework which one you have problem.
2.Install .NET Framework Redistributable Package and related updates
