ISSUE:

Unable to install .Net Framework updates kb 2539631 kb 2518864 kb 2418241.

Cause:

Checked the log files and discovered the following :

===============================================

MSI (s) (F4:94) [11:52:07:212]: Feature: Servicing_Key; Installed: Local;   Request: Null;   Action: Null

MSI (s) (F4:94) [11:52:07:212]: Feature: NetFX20A_enu_amd64_net_IDKEYS; Installed: Local;   Request: Null;   Action: Null

MSI (s) (F4:94) [11:52:07:212]: Feature: URTM_STD_ENU_X86_IXP; Installed: Advertise;   Request: Reinstall;   Action: Reinstall

MSI (s) (F4:94) [11:52:07:212]: Feature: Redist_Package; Installed: Advertise;   Request: Reinstall;   Action: Reinstall

If you see carefully the once that have been highlighted, those Features URTM_STD_ENU_X86_IXP and Redist_Package are advertised in the Package (in this case the updates which are failing)

When any feature is advertised, it will get installed only when it is used/launched for the first time.

Resolution:

Hence we ran the following commands

msiexec /i {C09FB3CD-3D0C-3F2D-899A-6A1D67F2073F} ADDLOCAL=URTM_STD_ENU_X86_IXP /l*v %temp%\netfx20sp2_repair_log.txt /qn

msiexec /i {C09FB3CD-3D0C-3F2D-899A-6A1D67F2073F} ADDLOCAL=Redist_Package /l*v %temp%\netfx20sp2_repair_log.txt /qn

C09FB3CD-3D0C-3F2D-899A-6A1D67F2073F is the product code and URTM_STD_ENU_X86_IXP, Redist_Package are the feature that we are installing

We used the public PROPERTY “ADDLOCAL” so that the feature with get installed locally on the machine.
