How to install .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 7

The problem arose when I tried to install dotnet framework 1.1. When I tried doing that, the following error showed up.

1
If user click “OK’, the installation of .NET 1.1 will be cancelled, while clicking “CANCEL”
produces another error message similar to below:

RegSvcs.exe – No debugger found Registered JIT debugger is not available. An attempt to launch a JIT debugger with the following command resulted in an error code of 0×2 (s). Please check settings.
cardbg.exe !a 9×8e

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1(Service Pack 1) has resolved the issue. However, Microsoft does not provide download to standalone .NET Framework 1.1 installer that integrated with SP1.

To fix this, we need to follow the following steps, which is called slipstreaming. We need to sliptstream .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 into .NET Framework 1.1 installer, so that both the .NET
Framework and the Service Pack can be installed at the same time.

Follow these steps:
1. Create a new folder named DotNet in C:\ drive. (The path i used was C:\DotNet )
2. Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package (dotnetfx.exe). Make
sure the setup file is saved as dotnetfx.exe.
3. Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 (NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-
X86.exe). Rename the file to dotnetfxsp1.exe.
4. Copy both installation files into the same directory (i.e. C:\DotNet),.
5. Open Command Prompt as Administrator.
6. Change to the directory where the two installation files are stored, ie C:\DotNet.
7. Run the following commands one by one.

–> dotnetfx.exe /c:”msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:\DotNet”

2

Click on Yes and wait for this dialog which says installation complete.

3

–> dotnetfxsp1.exe /Xp:C:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp

–> msiexec.exe /a c:\DotNet\netfx.msi /p c:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp

4

Wait for the installer to disappear automatically.

8. Install Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 with slipstreamed Service Pack 1 by running netfx.msi from the working folder.

Dotnet Framework 1.1 is successfully installed. :-)

  1. Сайт отличный. Вручить бы Вам награду за него или почетный орден. +)

  2. I have installed the .NET Framework 1.1 onto my Windows 7 machine, all seems fine, the install goes all the way through, I even reboot my computer, but the program that requires the 1.1 framework still says it needs to be installed when I go to run it and I still have the same issues as if the .NET 1.1 Framework was NOT installed.

  3. i tried running it and all in cmd .. and the first line says Command line option Syntax error.Type Command /? for help..

  4. Perry, maybe you need also servicepack for framework 1.1 that is also installed ?

  5. Sujen. What is exactly wat you typed in CMD ?

  6. I’m getting the same error Sujen had. It says “Command line option syntax error”. Tried running dotnetfx.exe /? and saw that /C: was a valid command line switch which needed a command.

    I then tried extracting all the files to the same folder using

    dotnetfx.exe /t”C:\DotNet\” /c

    and then the rest of the steps you mentioned worked perfectly.

  7. oh its ok mate, your syntax there is a space between dotnetfx.exe and /c:”msiexec.exe, but actually you dont need one, thanks alot, it works for me

  8. i dont understand the sixth step? what do u to plz can u put a pic i really need this.

  9. Error 1310 Error writing to file:

  18. Wow! Excellent stuff! You are one smart mo-fo!

  19. Thanks man, u resolved my problem

  20. The command line syntax arises beacuse when you copy and paste the first command, the quotes are not the correct quotes needed in the command prompt. To solve, copy and paste the command into the command prompt and then delete and retype the quotes.

  21. I noticed if I copy and paste the first command given on this page, that it contains “smart quotes” (curly quotes) instead of “dumb quotes” (straight quotes). I’m not sure if that’s the problem other people are experiencing, but if so, you might want to first paste this into notepad and correct the quotation marks…

  22. 1st command line gives me a Not Valid windows 32 application error…
    I’m using windows 7 windows 32 operating system. What should I do?

  23. Thanks, all is fine
