Can anyone help? My (old) ThinkPad X30, running XP, seems to be trying to
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family
Update for .NET versions 2.0 through 3.5 (KB951847) x86
over and over again, but fails with error code 0x80070645 every time.
Please help me get this update installed.
" This action is only valid for products that are currently installed. "
The update can't detect the Version of the .NET Framework that is
installed. You have a few choices.
Open Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
Scroll down to the listing(s) of
Microsoft .NET Frameworks
Which ones are listed as being installed ?
IF there are *no* Versions *higher* than Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
installed, then you can update it by downloading, saving, and then
installing .NET Framework 2.0 SP2. If that is already installed, then
just install the application compatibility update for it.
The above depends upon the state of the installed .NET Frameworks.
If they are damaged, then scroll down this post until you find
the link to the .NET Framework setup verification tool.
That tool will report whether the Frameworks are installed properly and
you won't waste your time trying to install updates for damaged .NET
If .NET Framework 2.0 has not had SP2 applied as yet, download and
*save* it from here:
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2
Scroll down to the " Files in this Download " section and click the
Download button next to NetFx20SP2_x86.exe
Then download the applicability compatibility update and *save* it:
Scroll down that page until you come to the " Files in This Download "
Click the Download button next to NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe
When both downloads are done, close *all* open programs and browsers.
Create a new folder in My Documents, name it DotNet, and do *not* delete
either update in the future.
Now install NetFx20SP2_x86.exe
When the installation is finished, restart the system whether prompted
to or not.
Then install NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe.
If there are .NET Frameworks Versions installed that are at a *higher*
Version than 2.0, then you will have to troubleshoot there installation:
Download the .NET Framework setup verification tool and run it according
to the instructions on Aaron's blog.
It will create 2 logs:
This verification tool creates 2 log files by default that can be used
to determine what actions the tool is taking and what errors it
encounters while verifying a product. The 2 log files are listed below,
and they are created in the %temp% directory by default. Note that you
can find the %temp% directory by clicking on the Windows start menu,
choosing Run, typing %temp% and clicking OK to open the directory in
* %temp%\setupverifier_main_*.txt - this log contains information
about all actions taken during a verification tool session; it will
include information about each resource that the tool attempts to verify
for a chosen product and whether or not that resource was found on the
system; this log tends to be fairly long, so errors will be logged with
the prefix ****ERROR**** to make it easy to search and find them
* %temp%\setupverifier_errors_*.txt - this log only contains
information about any errors found during verification of a chosen product "
In Vista, you can open the %temp% location by typing %temp% into the
Start Search field and then click on the Temp folder that will appear.
Also see: Where to find .NET Framework 2.0 SP1, 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP1, 3.0
SP2, 3.5 and 3.5 SP1 setup log files
Either post the logs here or contact Aaron for further assistance:
I'm sure MowGreen wants to be helpful, but no lay person, non-techie can
follow these directions. I agree with those who say Microsoft should fix this
recurring problem with installing security updates.
Don't hold your breath...especially when the vast majority of users are NOT
seeing this behavior.

Problems updating .Net Framework 3,5 Service Pack1 and . Net Framework Family update v 2 a 3.5
(KB 951847) X 86
OS Windows XP SP3
Installed versions of .Net Framework :
v 1.0 - 3705
v 1.1- 4322
v 2.0 - 50727
v 3.0 and v 3.5
With netfx setupverifier 3.5 I got the following results :
.Net Framework 1.1
.Net Framework 2.0 SP2
.Net Framework 3.0 SP1
.Net Framework 3.5
error HKLM \Software\Microsoft\NetFramework Setup\NDP\v 3.0
That's when my problems really started :
I used Microsoft Cleanup Utility to uninstall .Net Framework 3.5 ;downloaded .Net Framework 3.5 but it wasn't installed .
I checked what went wrong and saw it still appeared in the Add/Remove programs list .Tried to remove it there but got a message about a missing file : netfx 30a x 86 and that I should insert disc 1 .
That's to say : I can't install it , I can't uninstall it ,I dont know the risks to security to leave it alone ,and I don't know what's the use for .Net Framework . I find it all extremely annoying . Maybe I'll buy a Mac . Anyway , help me , anyone.

I ran the verification tool, and it created a long log with the following
****ERROR**** Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v3.0
Expected Data: 2
Actual Data: 1
What might that mean? Am I missing SP2 for v3.0? Should I uninstall 3.5 and
update 3.0 before reinstalling 3.5? Or...?
My Add/Remove Programs program list shows I have
.NET 2.0 SP2
.NET 3.0 SP1
.NET 3.5 SP1
Re: error 0x80070645
Jo , I got this message too , but as I said I couldn't uninstall v 3.5 .
So I just used the suggestion I got in another Forum : I uninstalled all versions of .Net Framework with Revo uninstaller , then ran CC Cleaner and got rid of all "leftovers". I'm thinking twice befor installing Framework again as I don't know the use of it.
