    Default Windows Installer Stops Installation on .Net Install

    Hi all,

    Installing an application targeted for .Net 2.0 - Visual Studio Setup allows for 'ANY' .Net version on prerequisite.

    Windows Installer correctly detects that .Net 2.0 is required feature and Enables this feature successfully during application installation. But when the .Net install is complete, Windows Installer states that the required component was not installed successfully (incorrect) and to re-try installing the application.

    Windows installer should detect that the .Net 2.0-3.5 feature was enabled/installed correctly and continue installation of the application.

    Perhaps you have to manually install .net 2.0. Who knows why.

    Windows 8 will install such programs. But you have to go into the Add Windows Features and turn on .NET 3.5, download it and install it. You could also in turn install a program that requires .NET 3.5 that will force Windows 8 to download and install it and thus making it easier for you to install programs that require .NET 2.0 to install as well.
