Thank you for your post.
Some clarification with you:What's your OS?
Based on your description, it looks like that the installation
was blocked when it tried to install
.NET Framework 3.5.
If you're running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
, .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1 is shipped with it as one of OS component.
For .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1, it includes .NET 2.0 with SP2 and .NET 3.0 with SP2 as prerequisite.
This means, you have the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1
plus a few post 3.5 SP1 bug fixes on Windows 7. They are OS components
. .NET 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 can be added or removed via the Programs
and Features control panel. Thus, we don't need to manually install them. You can try
to verify .NET Frameworks on your machine.
If .Net Framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 cannot be verified on your computer, you can try to follow the steps mentioned in the following blog to repair them on Windows 7.
If you're running other OS
, I would suggest you to download .NET Framework 3.5 full package and install it separately from Visual Studio 2008 installation.
If the installation still fails, please try the following steps to collect the log files:
- Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")
- Install .NET Framework 3.5 full package
(For Vista or later OS, the installer must be run with administrator privileges
- Right-click the installer >> "Run as Administrator")
- Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder
