In response to the blog article I posted last week where I provided a link to a .NET Framework manual cleanup tool, I got some questions about whether or not a comparable version is available for cleaning up the .NET Framework 2.0. I am currently working on a couple of small work items in the code for the tool to enable it to work with 2.0, but in the meantime I wanted to post some manual steps. I know there have been a lot of uninstall/reinstall issues because we have released an alpha, a beta and numerous Community Tech Preview (CTP) versions and not all of them will uninstall completely cleanly in order to allow a future beta version of 2.0 to install correctly.
The following steps will help resolve .NET Framework 2.0 installation failures/hangs in most cases. Before proceeding please note these important caveats:
Steps to clean up a machine to fix a failed .NET Framework 2.0 installation:
If you have any trouble getting these steps to work correctly please let me know. Also stay tuned for a future post once I get the cleanup tool updated to work with .NET Framework 2.0 and post it for download.

Hi Tenjoteng - I'd suggest using the steps and the cleanup tool listed at blogs.msdn.com/.../8108332.aspx to fully remove the .NET Framework from your computer, then try to re-install the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (which will also install the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2 for you behind the scenes).
Hi, Trying to install .NET Framework 2.0 and I keep getting the following:
[11/05/12,12:01:40] Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a:  Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a. MSI returned error code 1603
[11/05/12,12:01:46] WapUI:  DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a is not installed.
Can you help or point me in the right direction. Thanks!
Hi Moondragon - Can you please use the tool described at blogs.msdn.com/.../6458047.aspx to collect all of your setup log files, upload the file named %temp%\vslogs.cab that this tool will create to a file server (such as http://skydrive.live.com), and then reply back here and provide a link that I can use to download your log files and take a closer look?
I have the same problem as moondragon. I tried all the steps You mentioned before.
I made setup log files. Could you please help me?
Thanks in advance!
Hi Zhartai - Can you please use the tool described at blogs.msdn.com/.../6458047.aspx to collect all of your setup log files, upload the file named %temp%\vslogs.cab that this tool will create to a file server (such as http://skydrive.live.com), and then reply back here and provide a link that I can use to download your log files and take a closer look?
Sorry, im a bit sleepy, i added wrong link.
Here is the correct link.
Hi Zhartai - This is the error that is causing the .NET Framework to fail to install on your computer:
MSI (s) (98:1C) [04:49:12:187]: Internal Exception during install operation: 0xc0000005 at 0x000006427EE83C3F.
This error code means access is denied. It might help to try to reset your file/folder/registry permissions by using steps like the ones at blogs.msdn.com/.../solving-setup-errors-by-using-the-subinacl-tool-to-repair-file-and-registry-permissions.aspx.
If that doesn't help, then it might also help to repair Windows Installer 4.5 using the installer at www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx.
Brilliant! Worked for me. Thank you.
Manually delete finally succeeded,Good Post!
9 years after the post, still thanks!!!!! ;)
Aaron I love you man.
After 2 days messing with a fubar .net 2.0 install where the repair tool failed to even attempt to fix it and the removal tool said no .net install found. I have got the old .net 2 out, fresh .net 2 loaded and its doing 3.5 as I type.
Thanks for all your work
The dotnetfx_cleanup_tool fixed my Microsoft FrameWork 2.0 installation prolem. Thank you very much.
