I had this problem on a fully up to date XP x32 machine with .net 4 on it. I needed to install as Universe Sandbox (A game), required me to have .net 2 to run it. I had an installation problem. So i decided to reformat and delete partition with a new install
as i needed to anyway.
So here i am with a fresh, fully up to date install with bitdefender 2013, nvidia drivers and realtek sound software and nothing else. Tried to install 3.5 from: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/confirmation.aspx?id=21
And had exactly the same error, letter for letter. Heres the details:
Event type: visualstudio8setup
The error Report contents are:
Also here is the error Log:
[11/26/12,16:34:12] Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a:  Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a. MSI returned error code 1603
[11/26/12,16:34:47] WapUI:  DepCheck indicates Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0a is not installed.
I have done a little digging and some say it could be due to a problem with some MSI driver or the other... but i am no expert in any means so I'll leave it up to everyone here!
I will watch this thread closely and hopefully reply very sharpish.
