How to get help if none of the above help
Hi, im having really annoying problems with my Visual Studio 2005 Professional, everything worked fine initially but since then it has said that one or more components cannot be found and it needed to be re-installed, but problem is when i try to run setup.exe from the directory it just never loads, even though i get 50% cpu usage from setup.exe in the task manager. I tried to run it with a selective reboot, with no other services apart from windows and the setup launched, but the install failed and i am now completely lost as to what to do next. any help is appreiciated, thanks, Ruairi.
oh, this also happens for the windows update of .NET framework 1.1
Hi Ruairi - Can you please try to use the steps listed at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2005/03/29/403575.aspx to gather a verbose log file for either or both of these scenarios, and then zip and send them to Aaron.Stebner (at) microsoft (dot) com so I can try to take a look?
Thanks astebner. It works for me. :)

I've sent an email to your email containing the error log in %temp%\dd_netfx20msi*.txt .
Waiting for your reply.
Hi Oggix - I looked at the logs you sent, and I'd suggest starting by running the .NET Framework cleanup tool described at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/05/30/611355.aspx and then trying to install the .NET Framework 2.0 again.
If that doesn't help, you may want to try using the MsConfig tool to disable any non-critical services to see if that will allow setup to succeed. You can find instructions for doing that at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/11/25/disabling-services-with-msconfig-to-work-around-setup-failures.aspx.
If none of those help, you will likely need to contact Microsoft Technical Support for more detailed troubleshooting assistance. You should be entitled to a free support case for setup-related issues such as this, and you can find contact information at http://support.microsoft.com.
Hopefully this helps.
