The .NET Framework installer crashes (or at least the following failed message pops up) before even starting to install. On a windows 7 machine without SP1 although I've read this shouldn't matter.
I've tried running as administrator, uninstalling all .NET stuff from the control panel, using the .NET repair tool and the cleaner tool. Have tried both web and offline installer. Nothing helps.
Is there anything else I can try? As it seems to crash before installing, maybe there's a way I can manually extract and start the install?

Have installed SP1 via windows update, but still getting the error. Slowly going through more windows updates/reboots to see if they fix it.
Still no luck. Windows is now stuck indefinitely "checking for updates" and the .NET installer still crashes.
I know it's an ancient topic, but decided pop in to share my own experience .. might become useful to someone, who knows .. Well I had the same weird issue - couldn't install the .net framework 4.5.2 and 4.6.1 on a laptop, which was vitally needed to run a piece of communication software for my everyday tasks. 4.5.2 and 4.6.1 both were part of Windows Update .. and there was 3.5 on my computer. Tried everything - ran troubleshooters of any kind, searched for solutions on the forums, downloaded and installed/uninstalled updates and other stuff, tried to find and fix possibly corrupted files, changed permissions and settings in my system, wasted two long days on that .. for nothing! - every attempt to install that bloody MS update failed (shame on Microsoft!!!) Then decided to try the other way - manually download & install the latest 4.7.1 - and guess what .. it installed without any problem at all .. so my humble advice would be - don't break through the closed window(s), if there might be an open door .. :)) Wish you luck!
