few days ago I formatted one of my computers (XP Home SP2 with prior updates installed). Now I am trying to install NET Framework 3.5, but display this error:

[03/21/10,17:19:36] Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a. MSI returned error code 1603 [03/21/10,17:20:17] WapUI: [2] DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a is not installed.

Already i have tried this to try solve this issue, but the problem persists.

1.- unistall all frameworks and reinstall from scratch

2.- clean all temps file and reinstall from scratch

3.- unistall and clean all frameworks with dotnetfx cleanup tool and reinstall from scratch

4.- install .NET Framework 3.5 full package

But all these possibles solutions have failed.

Any idea to solve this?

Thanks in advance
