Laurent Bugnion (GalaSoft) Diary of a Code Trotter

You got to love this delicious alpha feeling, when you try to install something and it fails with an non-understandable error message... Yum!!

In my case, installing Orcas fails. I managed to find out that the package responsible for the failure is the .NET 3.5 redistributable. While the error code is just a generic "error 1603", looking in the Windows Event Viewer shows that "Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (Pre-Release Version) -- You must first install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0SP1 before installing or repairing this product.".

So now's the question: Where do I find .NET framework 2.0SP1???

(background info: I am using Windows XP SP2, with .NET 1.0, .NET 1.1 and .NET 3.0 installed, including the whole WPF development environment)

(by the way, I posted a question about that on MSDN)

2.0 SP1 is installed as part of the VS2005 SP1 package. I was able to install everything on a clean Longhorn Server TS install.

I'm now running VS Orcas in Remote app only wish is that it supported DND between my desktop ant the remote app.

I would like to try to help you resolve this .NET Framework 3.5 installation issue. Could you please contact me via email at Aaron.Stebner (at) microsoft (dot) com and zip and send me the log files named %temp%\dd_* from your system so I can take a look?

Thanks! Aaron
