Hi jampacked.kreativ,

What is your Operating System? if you're installing Visual Studio 2008 on Windows 7 you can try to install  the .NET Framework 3.5 from the Program and Features (Control Panel --> Program and Features --> Turn Windows features on or off)

Hi Jampacked.kreativ,

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 Verifictaion Tool 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.
See: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/03/26/how-to-repair-the-net-framework-2-0-and-3-0-on-windows-vista.aspx

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
   Collect tool: http://blogs.msdn.com/heaths/archive/2008/05/09/visual-studio-and-net-log-collection-utility.aspx
- Diagnose the cause of failure installation
   Option 1:
   Try the points mentioned here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/0376db8f-4761-4ae5-9af2-98c53216318a#How_to_diagnoseVS2008_NETFramework_logs to diagnose the cause of failure installation.
   Option 2:
   Send vslogs.cab file to me (v-yicche@microsoft.com)
   Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

Best regards,
Yichun Chen
