Ask a question:


KB2698023 will not install from Microsoft update

Solution

Here is what you do....

FIRST... (and DON'T JUMP THE GUN)

Download THIS (the update with the issue) NDP1.1sp1-KB2698023-X86.exe

From Microsoft HERE (DO NOT INSTALL IT)


Now... Download THIS...

Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package

From Microsoft HERE (DONT INSTALL IT)


RIGHT CLICK ON dotnetfx.exe

and select EXTRACT TO dotnetfx
(this will give you 5 files, you need these for 5 mins)
No extract option? install winZip or 7zip (their both free) or extract with WinRAR

now with those files extracted RUN NDP1.1sp1-KB2698023-X86.exe
and Install it...

when Asked for "netfx.msi"
Browse to it (where YOU extracted the other one) & the installation should accept it and finalize

simply because I am smart and Microsoft are not.....

DON'T just Google dotnetfx.exe
if the MS link changes.....
GO TO http://download.microsoft.com
and search for it their and MAKE SURE you get .NET 1.1 version of dotnetfx.exe (not the 1.0)

Oooo and yes.... it works....
