So you get an error when you try windows update
and it comes up failed when you run KB2698023 or KB2742597
and it keeps on bugging you that you need that update....
I guess maybe you even tried downloading "netfx.msi" as advised on OTHER places ROFL
And its told you A Resource within netfx1.cab was is unavailable?
well it would... as you don't have it like (as u only downloaded the msi)
Here is what you do....
FIRST... (and DON'T JUMP THE GUN)
Download THIS (the update with the issue) NDP1.1sp1-KB2698023-X86.exe
OR This one
Download THIS (the update with the issue) NDP1.1sp1-KB2742597-X86.exe
OR This one
Download THIS (the update with the issue) NDP1.1sp1-KB2833941-X86.exe
(you only need 1, and then maybe the other, use the one your update failed on)
Both Files Come Direct From Microsoft (DO NOT INSTALL IT YET)
Now... Download THIS...
Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package
From Microsoft HERE (DON'T INSTALL IT)
RIGHT CLICK ON dotnetfx.exe
and select EXTRACT TO dotnetfx
(this will give you 5 files, you need these for 5 mins)
No extract option? install winZip or 7zip (their both free) or extract with WinRAR
now with those files extracted,,, RUN EITHER
and Install it...
when Asked for "netfx.msi"
Browse to it (where YOU extracted the other one) & the installation should accept it and finalize
simply because I am smart and Microsoft are not..... cant believe they fkd this up with a replacement
DON'T just Google dotnetfx.exe
if the MS link changes.....
GO TO http://download.microsoft.com
and search for it their and MAKE SURE you get .NET 1.1 version of dotnetfx.exe (not the 1.0)
Oooo and yes.... it works for them ALL....
And i can't believe some of the sites ive seen telling people to uninstall ALL .NET and start installing them all from scrtatch.... wtf do u do next time MS do this... uninstall it all again? wtf people
oddly replaces the last update yet causes the same problem
good old Microsoft.. BAH...
USEFUL INFO FOR THE TECHS:
Because it keeps doing this on certain systems with certain Updates ive started creating a folder HERE on the computer Like This
That way its their for future problems with the files ready for me
|Just an Example, You CAN Put your Folder Anywhere|
Microsoft.net is also really messy
After your told to reboot & the pc comes back on, .net is still installing stuff
and sometimes even after a 2nd reboot, its still installing stuff & making system changes
so before attempting another update test
its best to open "Task Manager" and keep an eye out for
2 EXE files that appear & then disappear, make sure their both done & gone
(don't try to close them, let them work)
these are the files that are normally going after 2/3 reboots
they will stay their (until i reboot again)
and they maybe back again after the reboot
its hard to tell if their modifying .net 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 or v4
but until their gone, .net isn't fully updated
yet have you ever seen windows update tell you to reboot your pc 5 times in a row after updates?, ive not seen that, yet that's what it takes.... so it could be 5 days after actually updating that all the fixes are applied.. depending on how often you boot & shut down the pc... that's kinda bad...
sometimes only the mscoresvw.exe is visible
but a reboots needed till it goes away
if it fails, Re-Extract the dotnetfx.exe
Don't really no why, but i think the installer modifies the MSI from the last time you did it ;)
Easy Work Around?
well theirs a way around this, but its slow
what you do is only install the ,NEt 1.1 updates (and reboot twice)
then install the ,NET 2 updates & reboot twice
then the 3 and then the 3.5 and then the 4
this way is slow, but appears to work
also you could make a bat file that installs .net & updates
then reboots the pc and checks for one of the Specific KB UPDATE folders in the win dir
and if its seen it skips to installing .net 3.5, then reboots checks for 1,2 or 3 and then does v4
then its just a case of adding each update to a folder & the bat
you could also mark the bat out with #DOT_NET_1.1 and DOT_NET_1.1_Updates
and manually evoke the bat from a menu bat to skip to install OR just update
I have a windows Update BAT Script concept, that's available coming soon on my PC Repair blog Here :)
