0x66A error installing .NET Framework 2.0

hi--i've seen similar questions re: this issue, and i've tried uninstalling
and reinstalling the existing .NET frameworks on my computer. nothing seems
to be working, though.

i'm running Windows XP SP2. my auto updates has been trying to install .NET
framework 2.0 for a week or so, and it always fails, and i get the error
0x66A. since several others seem to be having the same problem, should i
ignore the update or is it a critical item? can anyone help resolve this?
thanks!

First, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923100 (ignore the title).

If no joy, see this recent post by my colleague MowGreen:

RE: 0x66A error installing .NET Framework 2.0


The issue can be caused by a damaged .NET Framework component. At this time,
let's refer to the following steps to troubleshoot it:

Step 1: Download Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp Utility
============================================
1. Visit:
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...BD/msicuu2.exe
2. Save the file on the Desktop.
3. Please double click the "msicuu2.exe" file to install it on the computer.

Step 2: Remove .NET Framework
========================
1. Click "Start" -> "(All) Programs"->"Windows Installer Clean Up".
2. Please locate and remove all .NET Framework software.

After that, please perform the following suggestions to reinstall .NET
Framework 2.0 and its updates.

Step 3: Reinstall .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package and its
updates
================================================================
Please download and install the following updates in order.

Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86)
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...a/dotnetfx.exe

Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 (x86)
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...x20SP1_x86.exe

Note: When the "File Download" window appears, please click "Save", and
follow the directions to save the file on the Desktop. After downloading all
the setup files, please double-click on each one to install them.

RE: 0x66A error installing .NET Framework 2.0

i'm sorry, i must be missing something. i've tried uninstalling and
reinstalling all my .net stuff a few times (with the installer cleanup
utility), but it hasn't solved the problem--windows update still won't
install the 2.0.

from your comment below, should i uninstall the 1.0 & 1.1, but then skip
reinstalling them? just go straight to the 2.0?
