I am trying to install one of the security updates from Microsoft. Every time I try it ends up saying it could not be installed. I have checked their website to see if any reasons could be given to suite my problem but could not find any. The update is "Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB928366)". I am running XP home with SP2 installed. I have stopped my firewall and antivirus programs to no avail. I even unticked the box to say I dont want the update because even after the failure I get the update message again. But even then it still comes up asking me to update. Has anyone got any ideas please. Thanks in advance.
I used this tool recently and it worked a treat. Its called wurtbeta but the link seeemed to have disappeared. Had 187 updtaes which wouldn't installed. After using it evrything went as before. Try googling it.
Click here click here Just found it. It seems to have been deleted from other download sites though. The full version is now released. Just to say that it worked a treat from and lots of others had with success. Try it but I can't take responsibilty for it. Others may well contribute to this.
Hi again. Update... I used the tool to remove the net framwork 1.1 then did updates. The updates then showed I need the version 3!!. Anyway I did that and it failed to load. After looking into the add and remove section in control panel and showing all updates the version 3 is allready installed. So I will just leave alone for the time being and see what goes on in the near future. I did do a system restore before all this and there is a system checkpoint a couple of weeks ago so all is not lost if anything is wrong. Thanks everyone. I have learnt a bit more about windows as well. cheers.
