Ok, so we now know that the problem does not lay with the download. We now have two options:

1) Execute the service pack by double clicking the download and see what happens, or

2) Reboot the computer into Safe Mode and execute the download in that environment.

Option 1 will either work without a hitch as you are not using Windows update or it will fail due to some other as yet unidentified problem. Option 2 will work but it won't give us the opportunity to find out what the problem is. Which option do you want to try, is it open the box or take the money? Just be warned that Option 1 will take a lot of time and effort to investigate.

Whatever you decide you must create a restore point before continuing. Let us know how you want to proceed.

BTW, if you want to check if you have Windows Installer 3.1, look for MSI.DLL in the Windows\System 32 folder. If the version is 3.1.4000.2435, you have the latest version.

I'll take option 1 for 300, Alex.  :D

OK..checked the MSI.DLL  file...it is version  3.1.4001.5512

I have a question...since I already have .NET 2.0....does this exe install overtop of that, or do I remove the existing application first?

The package is designed to overwrite the existing installation. It is only if things go wrong that we will have to think about removing earlier versions.

ok...before  I do anything....

My MSI.DLL version looks like it might be from May 2007.

Do I need to do something about that before I run the .NET 2.0 installer?

I am sorry if I am asking obvious questions...but I know just enough about this stuff to be dangerous, so I have to ask. :)

You have MSI version 3.1, the version required by this SP.

Clicked the .exe

Here is the result:


So, now I uninstall something, right?

hmmm...interesting.  In my add/remove programs, it says that .NET 2 was installed on 12/09/2008...which I think was around the time I used the Windows update site to successfully update, but also when I got the error message that the 2.0 patch failed.  Is that significant?

In fact...all the .NET programs list that installation date....

As you have guessed this is saying that the .Net 2.0 SP is already present.

Would you be so kind as to let us know what you have listed for .Net at  "Start | Control Panel | Add/Remove... " ?

Sorry, I have just gone back a page (forgot that you had already done that). Go to "Start | Control Panel | Add/Remove... ", highlight the .Net 2.0 SP 1 entry and click "Repair"

Right, in the list go up several entries and highlight the entry "Microsoft Net Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1", right click on that entry and select "Repair" from the context menu. If that fails we will have to use the registration correction tool.

There is still no "repair", so I assumed you meant the "change" . I clicked that. Something loaded and then the loading pop-up disappeared. But I got no other message. Now what?  Did I mess something up?

No, you are fine.

Download clwireg-x86.exe from this page (note that there are three versions on the page, the other two are for 64 bit operating systems - be sure to get the right one). Save it to your desktop and close all open windows. Run the downloaded file.

Once that is completed we can look at re-running the SP1 download that is sitting on your desktop from the earlier attempt.

Oh shoot. I forgot to make a system restore point.  :smash:

OK...just made one now. There is one from yesterday, though, so hopefully that will be OK to use if I need to do a system restore.

Just to be clear -- you had a restore point from yesterday and just made a new one after you received the "successful registration" message as shown in the image above.
