ASP.Net 2.0 Uninstall

I have a problem with ASP.Net 2.0 that I think needs a re-install. When I
go to the control panel and try to uninstall, the Microsoft .Net Framework
2.0 Setup dialog comes up and tells me the wizard is about to guide me
through the installation process. As soon as I hit next I get a brief
screen that is asking me to agree to a license agreement but before I can
chek the box it flashes to the next screen and tells me:

The folling error occurred during setup:

The installation package or a needed file could not be opened. Verify that
the package exists and that you can access it.

The only button I have is the Finish button.

I have tried to manually uninstall and reinstall ASP.Net 2.0 with the
aspnet_regiis tool and that appears to work but the issue persists. The
site using ASP.Net 2.0 also continues to work. The only reason I noticed
the error in the first place was the machine's refusal to install a security
patch to ASP.Net 2.0.

Can anyone direct me to either a fresh copy of the install package and
instructions on how to replace it or possibly an ASP.Net cleaner package
that will allow me to clean ASP.Net 2.0 from the system for a re-install?

Thanks!

I think we might be confusing "ASP.NET 2.0" with the .NET Framework 2.0,
which "includes" ASP.NET 2.0 here.

A simple google search will find the download as the very first item in the
search results:

http://www.google.com/search?source=...k+2.0+Download

If you think your issue is something that requires an install, you can just
try reinstalling the framework first without doing an uninstall. It may
prompt you to "repair" - I don't remembers. Otherwise, there are command line
switches that will extract the missing .msi file you talk about.

Thanks Peter.

I downloaded the dotnetfx.exe file and as soon as I started it I got the
exact same response that I've already detailed.

Thanks for trying!

Look up the command line switches for the dotnetfx.exe to extract the missing
msi file, as I indicated. I think its /x .

Sorry, its "dotnetfx.exe /C"
-- the MSI will be in the folder you've specified.

Thanks again. Installed all files to
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Micr osoft .NET Framework 2.0

Still getting same result.

Was that what you were suggesting? Refreshing all files from the package to
the directory?

re:
!C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Mic rosoft .NET Framework 2.0

That is not the correct install path.

The correct install path is :

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

Try uninstalling the .Net Framework 2.0, and reinstalling it to the correct directory.

You should be able to uninstall it via "Start Button", "Settings",
"Control Panel" and "Add or Remove Programs".

If the .Net Framework 2.0 isn't listed there, I can give you instructions
on how to remove it manually, but first check to see if you can instruct
it through the "add or Remove" Control Panel applet.

After you do that... reinstall it, after a reboot.

Thank you for your post.

My original problem is that I cannot uninstall with the control panel.

I have detailed the actual issue in the first message in this thread.

I appreciate iny info you have on manually unistalling the Framework.
