RE: KB928366 Security Update won't install after downloading

Same non-install, error code 0x643. Tried to delete downloaded from
C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download, did not help.
Probably we have to uninstall something (service pack 1 or the whole 1.1),
reinstall.
Or we will have a better update-pack.
Who knows?

I'm having the same problems and getting the failed to install error code.
The update keeps popping up though regardless of how often I attempt to
install and it continues to fail.

I also am having a problem. I have two computers. A Dell 650 Workstation
where the update failed and a Toshiba Tecra M4 where the update worked. I
have tried several times on the Dell with no success. I also deleted it and
everything else from Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and that did not
help.

I got the same problem, solved it like so:

1) Download the update (KB928366) from the Microsoft Download website:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en
When running the update it asks for a file called "netfx.msi".

2) To get "netfx.msi" (if it's not on your harddrive), download the
Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package from
here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en
This is a file called "dotnetfx.exe". Use WinRAR to open the file.
Among the file in the archive you'll see "netfx.msi". Extract this
file somewhere.

3) Point the KB928366-updater to the file "netfx.msi" you just
extracted. Installation will continue normal and the update will
finish without an error.

Hope this might be of some help!

Here is EXACTLY what you do to solve this problem for Windows XP 32
bit. If you happen to have a rarer 64 bit version, server OS, or
SOMETHING else follow the same general instructions but get the
version of the files appropriate for your system but first, Microsoft
has pissed me off beyond belief. I looked in my log and this same
thing happened 6/2006...thanks MSFT for torturing us again this year.
I thought it was a familiar feeling...nice branding...this is a huge
humiliation for their .NET team in my opinion or perhaps we should
start calling them the .NOT team...anyway....

Steps:
1) Go to the control panel and select the add/remove software tool
then TRY and remove everything with .NET in the name. If you can
remove everything go to step 3. If you cannot remove everything go to
step 2.

2) Go and download the windows installer clean up tool at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

run the windows installer clean up tool and BE CAREFUL to only select
the .NET items from the list and remove them. Note: this will likely
leave the names as "dead links" in the Add/Remove Software list
(ahhh ...Microsoft thoroughness at its best) but not to worry they
will do no harm and will get fixed when we finish. It's possible to
clean them up but let's stay out of the registry :-)

3) Go and get the file "dotnetfx.exe" this is ".NET 1.1" from:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

install it.

4) Go and get the file "NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe" this is the ".NET
1.1 service pack 1" from: my personal website (JUST KIDDING,
RELAX...get everything of course from a microsoft.com domain)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

install it.

5) Install the SECURITY patch, the dreaded KB928366, we have all grown
to hate. You can install it from the Windows Update program (be sure
to ONLY select the KB928366 patch and NOTHING else, we dont want to
put back 2.0 or 3.0 yet). It's OK go ahead and click ...it will be
alright...you can do it...it's just one more time... :-)

6) Re-run the Windows Update and you can add back in .NET 2.0 and 3.0

7) Post to thank me...

Now WHY hasn't Microsoft posted instructions yet? .... What is UP?!

Good night!

George

I have this problem as well. Currently its occuring on a live production server. Most of the suggested fixes is to "uninstall asp.net" and "reinstall". These are simple not viable options for me. In addition, I need asp.net 1.1 as well asp.net 2.0 operational on the server at all times.

Why doesn't someone from Microsoft fire the person that created the problem and get this fixed?

K928366 won't install - found a solution

I was having this problem on a Dell Inspiron. I killed off all non-essential processes, started the update, and then killed explorer.exe too.

I don't know what was causing the update to abort, but here are some things that were running:

kpf4ss.exe kpf4gui.exe (Sunbelt Personal Firewall)
Googletoolbarnotifier
nvsvc32.exe (NVidia)
EM_EXEC.exe (Logitech)
appservices.exe (Iomega)
acs.exe (Atheros)

Gliorgios, To finish your last sentence...was your complete uninstal using
Windows Uninstaller v3.0 to uninstall all 3 >Net Framework entries and then
reinstall all three again "SUCCESSFULL" or NOT? If successful, how did U find
..Net Famework V2.0 and 3.0 to reinstall. If your way works, it's the first
even available as Microsoft Remains DumbMum to any responses to DEFECTIVE

Re: KB928366 Security Update won't install after downloading

Hi Rusty and John:

I had a reoffer problem with this update on an XP system. After
searching this newsgroup, I
found the following post (pasted below) by a great guy in France.
His steps
are easy to follow, and it fixed my issue. His post is from
07-16-2007.

Maybe it will help you, too.

Cheers,

~ Mark

----------------

This is an old bug showing up again. Although the official solution
involves reinstalling the framework after manipulating the registry
with the
installer cleanup tool, there's a much simpler way to fix this:

1. Instead of using Windows Update, download the KB928366 package
from here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
Do not install yet.

2. Download the .Net framework 1.1 redistributable package from here
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...7-034d1e7cf3a3

3. Use Winzip or a similar utility to unpack dotnetfx.exe in a
folder of
your choice. You should get the following files:
netfx.msi
install.exe
InstMsi.exe
InstMsiW.exe
netfx1.cab

4. Launch the KB928366 installer. It will soon complain that it can
find the
installation CD-ROM (don't ask me why). Browse to the folder where
you
unpacked the dotnetfx files.

That's it.

This procedure can be applied to any similar situation regarding
..Net
framework updates. I'm using it since years (that is, since this
Windows
Update bug exists).

Good luck.

RE: KB928366 Security Update won't install after downloading

I had the same issue but I found the cause, and a non-destructive fix.

..NET, SQL 2005, Visual Studio, MSXML and many other packages that use
Windows Installer tend to drop MSI and MSP files in C:\Windows\Installer.

Updates to such packages often seek the original files in this folder.
The .NET patch q928366 is one such update.

But these files can be rather large and you can end up with a lot of them,
and if the C: drive gets full, some people identify this folder as using a
lot of space and figure that .MSI and .MSP files are not required for any
existing software to run, so they are safe to delete...

On my server, the MSP & MSI files had been moved to another drive, and if
you hover the mouse over them or right-click and select properties, summary,
it tells you what each was for.

I just copied all the MSI and MSP files that identified themselves as
relating to .NET back to C:\Windows\Installer and reran the patch, and it
worked, no problems.
