Error Installing .NET on XP

We include DOTNEXFX.EXE with our .NET app installation and install it if the
customer does not have .NET. We cannot seem to get this to work for one
specific customer running XP. Running DOTNEXFX.EXE, install gets to end, 0
minutes remaining, then pops up the following error:

Error 1406: Could not write value folder to key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHNE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\InternetSettings\Zones\0

At this point .NET uninstalls everything it had just installed. Here's what
we have tried:
* Made sure the customer has latest XP service packs
* Made sure the customer has latest Windows Installer and any updates
* Made sure the customer was logged on as admin
* Made sure admin (and every other user) had full access to the registry key
and subkeys.
Nothing seems to work. Same error. Any ideas?

Hi Wayde,

First of all, I would like to confirm my understanding of your issue. From
your description, I understand that when you're trying to install the .NET
framework redistribution package on a certain client machine, a registry
key cannot be written to and setup fails. If there is any misunderstanding,
please feel free to let me know.

This problem seem to be machine specific, since you have the
administrator's privilege. In this case, the common installation process
seems doesn't work. So, please try the following for workaround.

1. Start->Run, regedit.exe from a computer which already had DOTNETFX.EXE
installed properly.
2. Navigate to the registry key and export to an .reg file.
3. Import the .reg file on the machine has fails to install DOTNETFX.EXE.
4. Install DOTNETFX.EXE again.
