Windows 7 - .net Framework update

Asked By Bill on 13-Jun-10 09:43 AM
For the last two days the computer has been trying to add a new update
loaded and working with Windows XP professional.  It fails on the download,
fails on a install from re-start and fails from a direct internet install
ERROR Ox643.  What solutions do you have?

You mean "Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1" I assume. ;-)  Are you sure on
what is being installed?  Is there an associated KB###### to go with the
title of what is being attempted?

This is not exactly *new* - it has been out there for several years
(8/30/2004) - so the first question I have is whether your Windows XP
Professional (32-bit) with Service Pack 3 system was recently rebuilt from

If you use the second web link above to download and *save* the service pack
and then you follow these instructions:

This may seem like overkill - but you may have other underlying problems.
If you do all of the following - a few things should be more certain than
they were before you started...  Like you are unlikely to have any
major/known malware on your system, your Windows Update components will be
the latest versions and working properly, your hard disk drive should be
free of unknown problems and organized for best performance and describing
your issue should become easier - if it even still exists after all this.
