Ok, I'm about out of ideas here. Can anyone help me with this .Net Framework Patch? I am trying to install a KB patch (KB2756918) to a Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 box.
Edit: Just to clarify specs:
Windows Server 2003 R2 32 bit
Machines are on an isolated network
Manually installing patch (yes it is the 32 bit version)
Issue is affecting multiple boxes, but not all (Both working & nonworking boxes are identical setups)
For simpler reading I'm listing here what I've done first followed by the error I get, which incidentally, has never changed regardless of my troubleshooting steps. (ie, it fails the same way every time; I'm not even getting different error messages)
Please note this is on an isolated network
Trouble Shooting Steps: (I reboot and attempt a manual install after each troubleshooting step)
- I have run a repair on .Net Framework (Fails due to isolated network)
- I have manually uninstalled/reinstalled all versions of .Net
- I have manually uninstalled all .Net versions
- I have run the .Net removal tool on everything
- I have run the .Net removal tool to get down to 3.0 so I can attempt to apply this patch & then apply the remaining .Net versions
So far, Technet & Google have been unfruitful endeavors
No matter what troubleshooting step I've completed I get the same installation error: "The installation failed with: This package could not be opened..."
