I was using Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3 on my desktop computer whose Hard Drive got crashed two days ago. Hence I bought a new Seagate 250GB hard drive and re-installed Fresh Windows XP. Installation went fine then I went to windows update to get all recent paches and updates. Left the system for about 5 hours and when came back I saw a message saying “some of
installation for the Dot Net Framework had failed.”
Actually the system was trying to install Dot Net Framework but some of its parts are not getting installed. I rebooted the system and tried installing the updates again but still the same thing. Updates are looping on the same stage. So far I have tried installing the same more than 5 times but yet the same result. So now I am thinking to install Dot Net Framework manually. So can anyone please tell me from where can I download Dot Net Framework plus the PATCHES (SP1 for version 2.0 and SP1 for version 3.0), all in Stand-Alone packages?
Thanks for all your helps.
