Installing .net Framework 3.5 Sp1 On A 64 Bit Win7
Dec 25, 2009
I downloaded "dotnetfx35" from the Microsoft web site on my Windows 7 64 bit PC. When I double clicked on this file, it said it was extracting files, but I did not see any window popping up to show that the .NET framework is being installed. Now, I see a Microsoft.NET folder in the Programs in the Programs (x86) folder on my C drive.
However, I do not see MIcrosoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 in the Start>Programs menu or in the Add/REmove Programs list in the Control panel. Am I missing something? How can I verify that .net framework has in fact been successfully installed?
I have some updated software that requires .net Framework 4 to run.I use this on an older laptop that I have not ever used on line. By never going on line, I think this is the greatest virus protection ever. Anyway, to install the Framework 4 from Microsoft, one of the requirements is to be on line, which I do not want to do. Is there any way to install this Microsoft software without hooking up on line?
i am required to install .net framework v2.0 so that my vodafone dongle will work, i have installed 3 different packages of the v2.0 and the dongle still does not run,sometimes i am told the v2.0 is already installed, yet not being picked up.
I have 2 windows updates that haven't installed for about a month now. Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2656351)
Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2600217) I don't have a clue why but everything installs fine. I install them, restart my computer and everything does its thing while that's happening and they just pop up again when I do a search for updates after computer has restarted.
I wanted to try Windows 7 Home Basic edition. So I modified build 7201 iso and started installing it into a vhd. After the first restart during installation process it gave me a BSOD. It is telling me that the drive containing the vhd file does`nt have enough space so that the vhd could expand. But i already have enough space left in that drive that is more than 11Gb while windows 7 takes only 8Gb to install.
When Windows7 ships, I will be installing it on my laptop (Dell Latitude D631). This machine currently has Win XP Pro installed on a SATA HDD of 120Gb capacity.
My plan is to remove this disk & put it to one side, and install Windows 7 64bit on a brand new SATA HDD. I have bought a 500Gb WD drive and ideally plan to create 2 partitions - one for Windows, one for my data.
My questions are:
1. Any upfront advice on pitfalls of this approach?
2. Any knowledge (I can't specifically find any data on this, having trawled all sorts of places) of any drive capacity limitation for my Dell laptop - I have heard of 120 or 137 or other Gigabyte sizes as a limit so am now a little concerned that my lovely new 500Gb drive may not be fully usable.
If there's any inherent limitation, what's the way around this? Or will the BIOS 'autodetect' and see all 500Gb or is there something I need to do in BIOS or elsewhere to ensure the whole drive is visible and usable?
3. Finally...can I use the Windows 7 install process to create the 2 or even 3 partitions successfully?
I'm trying to install Windows 7 32bit on one of my drives via Vista, I click install on the DVD and click the drive. It does the first stage of installing and expanding files (whatever that is!). Then it restarts.. upon restart it boots onto Windows Setup and I get the logo which glows for a while then freezes.
I've looked this up and i've removed ram so I just have 1stick of 1gig and i've unplugged various USB items except my keyboard and mouse and still get the issue.
I have a 320 gb hardrive which is split into 2 partitions at the moment, C and D. Unfortunately, my C drive, which has Windows XP installed on it at the moment, is only 15gb. I know I need atleast 20GB for a Windows 7 64-bit installation.
As I don't have access to another drive or a large enough USB to back my files up in at the moment, I was wondering if I should just follow the guide here and install Windows 7 in my D drive instead. The thing I wanted to confirm was this:
I read in this thread that if I install Windows 7 on D drive, it'll read the drive it is installed on as C. Is that true? Because I was wondering if I could just install Windows 7 in D drive and then format C which has XP in it (but none of my data).
Then I could rename the blank drive to D. Is this scenario possible? To cut a long story short, I want to install Windows 7 on my PC, get rid of XP, but my C drive is only 15gb and my D drive has all my data (movies, pictures, documents etc) in it.
I am looking to use my 1TB seagate SATA II drive for my Windows 7 installation, and was wondering how I should go about partitioning it and how large each partition should be or what I sould put on each partition.
My system will be used for the following:
Computer Games that take up a lot of space (World In Conflict, Empire Total War, Battlefield 2, Call of Duty, etc.)
Video files/ recordings (I have a Hauppauge tv card)
Basic apps like office
Which of the above items should I put on the OS partition, and which should get their own partitions? How large should the OS partition be compared to the other partitions? Seperate partition for games?
Having one giant drive might be nice to try, but then I would have no where to put my excess video files if I ever needed to reformat. The 1TB drive accomodates whatever video files I can't store on my 2 smaller drives and currently has 120 GB of video on it.
In addition to my 1TB drive, I also have 2 more internal drives, a 250GB Maxtor ATA which is filled with video files and a 200GB WD SATA that I use for my TV card and storing the recordings I make until I have a chance to edit them or move them to a differet drive.
I have a seperate 250GB external drive for backing up data files and music, so the backup issue is taken care of.
I have been working on this for about 5 hours now, searching many forums, downloading drivers, changing Bios settings, etc... but nothing is working. I realize there is a compatibility issue with KV8 and Win7 but a guy at Asus said it might be able to be fixed with certain drivers. I have been fooling around with VIA and Fasttrak 378.
My hard drive is working fine as I am using it right now, but when I get to the Win7 installation to choose where to save it, it does not detect a hard drive. This happened when I tried to install XP pro 64 a while ago as well. How can I make it appear? My system is:
ABS built Asus K8V SE Deluxe AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 2gb G.Skill Ram 160gb Maxtor SATA hd
I guess I'm confused as to why my hard drive is even RAID configured being that there is only 1.
Since I made the Move to 64-bit a while back, Every once in a while, I would run into a Problem where I needed to Install Driver that was Un-Signed.
As A Security measure in the 64-bit Versions of Vista/7, All Drivers must come with a Secure Digital Signature.
This is not a large problem anymore with the fact that Most Drivers are Signed nowadays. But Older Hardware Drivers tend not to be Signed.
There is a Simple way around this Block.
Open the Command Prompt in Admin Mode (Type "CMD" into the Start Menu and press "Ctrl+Shift+Enter") Enter this Command: bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS Now when you Re-Boot, You should be able to Install those Pesky Un-Signed Drivers.
I use a Linksys WUSB600N wireless adapter and I'm having a problem with it. Every time my adapter is detected, Windows 7 installs its own drivers which are terrible. I can't even install the drivers I want! I have searched everywhere but haven't any luck for solutions. I've even tried installing my drivers over Windows', but that doesn't work well. I have Windows set to "Never install driver software from Windows Update" but it still does.
The setup.exe for my drivers requires the adapter to be plugged in to finish installation, but I can't do that with Windows' drivers inevitably going to install first. Nor can I manually install drivers with the Device Manager if it also requires the adapter to be plugged in. I'm guessing the DriverStore is causing Windows to auto-install these faulty drivers?
I did a partition, i ran the XP setup, chose the partition, started install, then it copied the files, then it had to restart, it restarted.. but its not moving for the next setup screen, it just jams on the load, "Press any key to boot from CD ... "
It is been there like over 30 minutes now, maybe someone can help me with this problem, thank you in advance.
PS. I restarted it also and then booted it again, and it seems it did not copy those files.. the partition was still empty.
PPS. And as it seems.. it does not run not at all now, i took out the XP cd and it does not load Windows 7 Also.
I am very lost, I have a IBM ThinkPad T42 with an older 20Gig hard drive that is blank, no OS on it, nothing at all. I tried to perform a custom clean install of Windows 7 and get to the part where you can format the drive or install drivers. When I select to install the drivers it can never find any.
What am I doing wrong? I know a little but I guess not enough, do I need to install fro somewhere else? and what drivers is it looking for?
I'm having trouble installing windows 7 from my flash drive onto my netbook that runs winxp.
Where I used UNetbootin on my Vaio (Vista) laptop computer to burn an iso image to my flash drive. I then booted up my netbook, entered BIOS, changing the USB booting priority to the USB. However, I then get the error bessage "Error BOOTMGR is missing ctr alt del" .
I have purchased and downloaded both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows7 Professional (no CDs or media here only download version)
I sucessfully upgraded from Vista 32 to Windows 7 32
Then I upgraded my hard disk (140Gb 500GB) and RAM (3GB to to 4GB)
Now I would like to go from Windows 7 32bit to 64bit
When I try and run the Windows 7-P-retail-en-us.x64.exe file it upacks the box then stops with this error:"We are unable to create or save files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write flies and that that folder is not read only".
I am the System Admin and I have full rights, and have moved the exe and the setup box files to My Documentsand I have modified the directory properties/attributes but I still get the same error over and over.
I searched the posts and some people stated one needs a clean install others say you can upgrade from any version so I am trying the upgrade here especially since the upgrade from Vista 32 to Windows 7 32 was smooth and did require all the extra work of a reinstall.
Cannot run my Lexmark productivity Studio. When I try to open it I get a notification that I need to download net frame work 2.0. (running windows 7 64 bit) EVERY download Microsoft has for 64 bit net frame work 2.0 will not install. I have uninstalled the Lexmark printer, tried every version of 2.0 and still cannot get the Lexmark Studio to run. When the printer was first installed , the Studio program worked.
The error would pop up , I would clear it and then the program ran. I run the troubleshooter and it says the program is incompatible now. I have tried running it in different compatibility modes with no luck. Tried Lexmark support and so far they have been no help. can any one help me?
I installed windows 7 on my computer. Now, I get this notice that I need to add .NET framework version 2 on my computer. I have tried to download it and I get an error that says not supported by 64 bit operating system??? Do I need it?? What do I do???
I'm currently running 32-bit Windows 7 (Professional, full version) on my laptop, and want to use this machine to create a bootable USB drive with 64-bit Windows 7 (also Professional, full version). I tried going through the steps that are available on various tutorials online, but I'm always tripped up while attempting to use bootsect to make the drive bootable; basically I get an error saying that I need to be using a 64-bit OS.
I don't have convenient access to a computer with 64-bit Windows Vista/7 (I work at an academic institution where all pubic computers have XP or Linux), so I'm wondering if there's any way to get around this and create a bootable USB for 64-bit Windows 7 via a 32-bit OS.
When I go to Control Panel - Programs - Turn Windows features on or off, Net Framework 3.5.1 does not have a checkmark. Upon expanding it, I find that
"Windows Communication Foundation HTTP Activation"
"Windows Communication Foundation HTTP non-Activation"
are by default unchecked for me. When I check them, I get the following message:
"An error has occurred. Not all of the features were successfully changed." When I click ok, I says it needs to restart to apply the changes. After restarting and going back to the same places, the above two boxes are still unchecked.
Any information as to why this might be and what can be done to ratify the situation would be most welcome. I need to open a program which requires Net Framework.
I downloaded and installed windows 7 (i did the upgrade from vista, not a clean instal) upon its release last night, and now when i start the computer up i get an error that says i need the .NET Framework 2.0. I looked through the computer and i have version 3.5.whatever.
This is pretty frustrating.
Additionally, i get an unknown error when i've tried to install windows live, both via windows update and when i dl the .exe from the website. i am not sure if the two are related or not.
I did the student discount if that makes any difference.
my boss asked me to download the 3.5 Client Framework. I can only find just the standalone installer for 3.5 (Which errors on us). Im not exactly sure what he is talking about i was wondering if someone could please explain the difference and provide a link(Ive been looking).
im trying to run a program that requires .net 3.5, so what i did is i turned on or put a check on microsoft .net 3.5 framework in programs and features. the progress bar immidiately fills up but in the end i get error saying "unable to turn on all features"
