I am trying to install .NET framework 4.0 under Windows 7 but am getting an error with code 1406.
I checked the logs:
MSI (C:\a002a771e38ece7cca\netfx_Core_x64.msi) Installation failed. Msi Log: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Setup_20121229_020733440-MSI_netfx_Core_x64.msi.txt Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x80070643), "Fatal error during installation. " (Elapsed time: 0 00:02:15).
It all started with a cleanup tool for removing .NET 4.5 since I was trying to get rid of a linker error that it might have caused. However, after cleaning it up, I couldn't run both VS2010 and VS2012. Then, I uninstalled both IDE's and tried to install VS2010. That failed since I couldn't install .NET 4.0.
I really feel helpless and don't want to reinstall the whole OS from scratch. So what should I do?
