.NET Framework 1.1 service pack 1 prob.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've got a minor problem and was wondering if anyone had any ideas how to remove this.

The above mentioned service pack update came from microsoft via automatic update yesterday afternoon.

When prompted I installed it with no problem. Unfortunately, the little updates reminder stays in my toolbar.

When I click it, it again asks if I want to install this update. re-install just gives me the message "some applications could not be installed" Nothing gets rid of it, not cancelling, not reinstalling, not restarting comp.

It hasnt effected my machine other than just being in the toolbar, but I'm concerned about what has happend to the update, and how it will effect future updates if I can't get rid of this.

Any Ideas?

Thanks

Does it still appear in the "custom" list of available updates on the Microsoft page? How is it reported in the history?

Have you tried to roll back to a previous restore point to check if any registries were added/altered or if the icon still appears?

I seem to have gotten rid of it now. Not sure what the solution was as I tried quite a few things, but its all good now.

Thanks for your help quarter. :thumbsup:

If i remeber right that was caused by another update being installed before that one. It was fixed later but a few of our customers saw it. rollback was the easiest solution...

If you want it removed, you can go to add/remove programs and click on show updates and if you know, it will probably show up anyway as ".NET framework 1.1" and you can uninstall it.

it simply can't install on my machine that's why the reminder keeps showing up

there's a version 2.0.

Maybe that's why the update warning keeps popping up?

You can download the 2.0 from various sites and install it directly instead of via the Win Update.

And after Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 there came 3.0, which was followed in turn by 3.5 (SPs' for 2.0 & 3.0).

Time flies.

You can choose to hide a "problematic" update in the options section on the page and then follow GreyHaireds' lead.
