You didn't say, so I'll ask, have you done the net3.5 Service Pack 1 update?

You probably have, but you can double-check in Programs and Features.

Control Panel > Programs and Features.

The next thing I'd check would be whether it will install in Safe Mode.

Is your PC running fine otherwise?

From what I've just been reading, SP1 includes everything in kb959209.
Just hide it and ignore it.

Sorry if I've wasted your time. What is being written about this update is contradictory. I have my updates set to download and let me install later,
and I forget others do it differently.

I have NET3.5 SP1 and Windows Update hasn't sent me this one.
For the time being I'll consider myself lucky.

Best of Luck.

DON'T FIX IT UNLESS IT'S BROKE

My computer runs Windows Power-shell
and PowerGui from "Quest" not "Windows."
I suspect that either of these OR both
may have altered 'Net Framework'.
Now I haven't used either for about month
so I don't want to make changes right now
till I find out if they still work.
I wonder if any one else uses the underlined
programs or some other that is interfering
and has trouble updating
KB959209 in vista premium?

Cheers

Re: error code 80070663 when I tried to update microsoft .net framework 3.5 family up

try this ..it worked for me :

"Try install this hotfix from Microsoft Download Center An update for the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 is available

If it also impossible you have to remove NET Framework 3.5 by using NET Framework Cleanup Tool Aaron Stebner's WebLog : .NET Framework Cleanup Tool User's Guide

and the install NET Framework 3.5 SP1 again and all hotfixes for this"


I got help from Flavius I believe, it was quite sometime ago.
Good luck.

Hello Bela and welcome to the Vista Forums!

You have just received excellent help from the other Bela! However, if it doesn't work, I am Falvius' replacement, so just create a new thread in the Windows Update forum, and I will be more than happy to assist!

Thanks!

Richard

Re: error code 80070663 when I tried to update microsoft .net framework 3.5 family up

Power GUI is too cumbersome for me but it's still on my
computer as it won't uninstall I just decided to suffer
the crap then shortly before Xmas I received the link
to this thread. Clearly there is some light in the tunnel.
I am going to try the hot fix from M Soft first by
downloading the files to my other computer and
saving them. Then try to install them as per instruction from
M Soft. The whole thing is my own stupidity as not enough
space was allotted on the computer to save the restore
point before Power GUI so I could get rid off it.

Thanks you guys for your suggestions.

You CAN update in safe mode as long as you start safe mode with networking. To do that, restart your computer and while it is starting, repeatedly press the F8 key. A black dos-style screen will come up with several starting options. Click the one that states Safe Mode with Network. It will start in safe mode and you will still have internet capability. Hope this helps your issue.
