I got an email from the .NET Framework setup technical support team today with some more information about a possible workaround for setup failures that occur while trying to register System.EnterpriseServices.dll or run RegSvcs.exe /bootstrapi.
I have previously posted instructions to use the MsiBreak environment variable to gather debugging information if the .NET Framework setup fails due to this error. The technical support team has found a few cases where setting a break point on this custom action, then waiting for a minute or so and then pressing OK to continue .NET Framework setup will allow it to succeed.
If you would like to try this workaround, you can use the following steps:
Note that I have written about other possible causes of this type of installation failure in the following blog posts. If the above workaround does not succeed, these additional articles may be helpful in resolving this issue on your system:

.net framework 1.1 did got installed applying the given workaround but none of the application are able to run?
ERROR appears :
The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000135).Click OK to terminate application.
I have Vista RC2.
Any suggestions on this problem???
Hi Kaleprathamesh - I suggest trying all of the workarounds linked at the bottom of this blog post, and if none of them help, then pleaes try the MsConfig workaround described at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/11/25/disabling-services-with-msconfig-to-work-around-setup-failures.aspx.
If none of these workarounds help, your next best bet is to contact Microsoft technical support for more detailed troubleshooting assistance. You can find contact information at http://support.microsoft.com.
