- Uninstall "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Client Beta 1".
- Uninstall "Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Client Beta ".
2.1.8. .NET Framework Setup Failure in SP1 BetaIn Windows XP, the .NET
Framework setup program fails because failures in Internet Information Services
(IIS) Setup are treated as errors instead of warnings. This issue does not occur
on a computer that already has .NET Framework 3.0 installed.
To resolve this issue:Reinstall the .NET Framework.
2.1.9. .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 installation fails to upgrade .NET Framework 2.0 or 2.0 SP1
.NET Framework 2.0 SP2 installation fails on a computer that has the .NET Framework 2.0 or 2.0 SP1 installed and that is running Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000.
The .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 setup is a major upgrade that uninstalls earlier versions of the .NET Framework 2.0 and 2.0 SP1. When Windows Installer uninstalls previous versions, it relies on using the cached installation database and all updates. If Windows Installer cannot find the install packages for the earlier installed updates during the uninstall operation in its cache, or original source location, the installation fails. If an incomplete rollback occurs, this failure to install may also cause applications that use the .NET Framework to fail.
This problem may occur for one of the following two reasons:
The Windows Installer cache is missing necessary files
The Windows Installer cache is critical for repairing, for updating, and for uninstalling products. Therefore, you should not remove or modify the contents of the cache. If you change the contents of the cache, you may be prompted for a source when you try to update or to repair Windows Installer-based products.
Sometimes a Windows Installer Patch (.msp) file that Windows Installer expects to find in the cache may not exist. The following are two common reasons why the .msp file may be missing:
- You run a tool that finds and deletes large files or rarely used files on your disk.
- The owner of the %windir%\Installer directory changes from SYSTEM or from Administrators.
If this issue occurs, you see the following in the Windows Installer log for the failing installation:
MSI (s) (D0:B0) [19:05:57:843]: Couldn't find local patch 'C:\WINDOWS\Installer\a4784a.msp'. Looking for it at its source. MSI (s) (D0:B0) [19:05:57:843]: Resolving Patch source.
You can use the Microsoft .NET Framework Registration Correction Tool to resolve this issue when it occurs when you install the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2. The tool fixes this issue by deleting all hotfix or update registrations that are specific to this update so that maintenance installations do not try to load the specific .msp file.
You can also try to fix this issue by rebuilding the installer cache. You can typically find the Knowledge Base number for the hotfix or for the update in the lines that follow "Resolving Patch source," as shown in the following example:
MSI (s) (D0:B0) [19:05:57:859]: SOURCEMGMT: Source is invalid due to missing/inaccessible package.
MSI (s) (D0:B0) [19:05:57:859]: Note: 1: 1706 2: -2147483647 3: NDP20-KB917283-X86.msp
To fix the Windows Installer Cache for this example, follow these steps:
- Visit the following Microsoft Web site:
Note You can replace the Knowledge Base article number in the URL with the Knowledge Base article number of the hotfix or the update for which you want to fix the Windows Installer cache.
- Download the update.
- Extract the .msp file that is inside the hotfix or the update by using the /x command-line switch or the /extract command-line switch.
- Copy the extracted .msp file to the location for the missing file. In this example, the location is %windir%\Installer\a4784a.msp.
The hotfix registration or the update registration is corrupted
After a hotfix or an update is installed on a Windows Installer-based product, the hotfix registration or the update registration may become corrupted. This problem can occur because of third-party registry cleaner utilities that remove certain registry keys. These keys include the keys that are meant for internal use by Windows Installer. In this case, the "Resolving Patch source" message in the log reads as follows:
MSI (s) (CC:5C) [03:02:56:181]: Couldn't find local patch ''. Looking for it at its source.
MSI (s) (CC:5C) [03:02:56:181]: Resolving Patch source.
Note The location of the hotfix or the update is missing in the log message because of the missing hotfix or upate registration information. In this case, a hotfix or an update is still registered to a product. However, location information for the hotfix or update is missing. Although the file may exist, Windows Installer does not know the path of the file that Windows Installer needs in order to load.
You can use the Microsoft .NET Framework Registration Correction Tool to resolve this issue when it occurs when you install the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2. The tool fixes this issue by deleting all hotfix or update registration that is specific to this service pack so that maintenance installations do not try to load the hotfix or the update package.
To resolve this issue:
If you cannot successfully install the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and find the "Resolving Patch source" text in the installation log file as described in the “Cause” section, you can download the Microsoft .NET Framework Registration Correction Tool to resolve this issue.
The Microsoft .NET Framework Registration Correction Tool resolves both of the issues that the "Cause" section describes.
The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:
The Microsoft Download Center has one version of the tool for each processor architecture that the .NET Framework 2.0 supports (x86, x64, and IA-64). Most customers run a 32-bit version of the operating system. Therefore, these customers need to download and to install the x86 version of the tool.
Administrators may also use this utility in scripts by passing either the /q command-line switch or the /quiet command-line switch. In this way, you can run the application in silent mode without using a user interface and without using block scripts.
The tool writes a running log under the %TEMP%\dd_clwireg.txt folder. You can view this log for more information about what the tool is doing.
There's no known issue.
- The Microsoft .NET Framework Registration Correction Tool is designed to be used with any current version of the .NET Framework.
- You must be an administrator to run this utility.
2.3.1 General IssuesThere's no known issue.
188.8.131.52 HTTP POX is not composable with One-wayThe
OneWayBindingElement class is designed to create client-side channels
that expect null messages as responses; otherwise, it fails with a
ProtocolException error. Standard message encoders return messages that
have a non-empty message body. However, in a POX/REST scenario, you may want to
process messages based solely on the contents of HTTP headers (for example, 200
for success; otherwise, failure), rather than the message body. Because message
encoders do not let you return null messages based on HTTP headers in these
scenarios, it is not possible to use OneWay contracts on the client side.
To resolve this issue:In the channel stack configuration, add a
filter channel between OneWayBindingElement and
HttpTransportBindingElement that checks the HTTP response status code. If
the code indicates success, it returns null; otherwise, it returns the
original response message. The final configuration appears as follows, with a
custom binding element that filters the responses.
184.108.40.206 Windows XP issue when AllowNtlm is set to falseIn WCF, if you
specify the clientCredentialtype property as Windows and negotiate
the client credentials, you can enable NTLM to be used as a negotiation package.
The default behavior for WSHttpBinding and WS2007WttpBinding is to
negotiate Windows client credentials. You can control this behavior in WCF by
modifying the allowNtlm property. In the .config file, put the
clientCredentials tag in an endpointBehavior tag. In the code, set
a property on WindowsClientCredentials. There is a behavior change in SP1
that affects WCF running on all versions of Windows later than Windows XP. When
allowNtlm is set to false, WCF in .NET Framework versions 3.0 and
3.5 would instruct spnego to use Kerberos as the negotiation package. The
behavior change in SP1 excludes NTLM by passing additional information to the
negotiation layer. This change enables additional sspi packages to be negotiated
if they are available and supported by future versions of Windows. However, this
functionality is not available in Windows XP, and users who set the AllowNtlm to
false will experience problems.
To resolve this issue:Set SecureConversation to false when
you set AllowNtlm to false.
