I'm sorry too, but when the Asim_Omer reported on, that thing, or fate once again a test in VM, and do not see any problem, whether or not an issue here to me, I can not do anything after

Ciao.

@adric, I think that bottom line, in a way, you are both right. This addon by OnePiece is made to be used in everything from XP through Win7. As such, KB958488 must be included inside the addon because it is required in order for XP to be made up to date. Win7 SP1 does not need KB958488 because it already includes newer files. So when this addon is used on Win7 SP1 it causes a Failed to Install "Error" because Windows is smart enough to know it is not needed. This causes no harm at all except a blemish in the install log. That is all. So this addon does not need to be fixed since it works perfectly well with no functional problems on all the OS versions for which it is intended. If you don't want the error message in your log, then continue to use Rick's version. Since it is intended for Win7 SP1 ONLY, it does not include KB958488 so no error message is created.

Cheers and Regards

Uninstalling net framework 4 and installing it from MS eliminates the errors.
Yes, it's true that US TurboTax setup has problems with integrated updated .net 4 framework but after dozen of tests we haven't found nothing to fix in addon.
It seems the cause is USTT setup has issue with one of latest .net hotfixes (on a plain vanilla .net 4 it installs with no errors). The problem came out during the registration of one of its own files, needed for its future updates, I guess

Code: Select all

Message: 'Unable to generate a temporary class (result=1). error CS0002: Unable to load message string from resources. ' Source: 'System.Xml' Site: 
.

So there's nothing to do here to help you until USTT will acknowledge the issue and improve its setup routine. Sorry.

@pdl808
or as said, was not the fault of the DotNet 4 True AddOn, the NDP40-KB2600211-x86.exe already repaired your problem, with OnePiece_Microsoft.NET_Framework_v4.0.30319.276_True_AddOn_ENU.cab will have to be all OK

I did a new Win XP build including OnePiece_Microsoft.NET_Framework_v4.0.30319.276_True_AddOn_ENU.cab dated 07 Mar 2012.

The US TurboTax 2011 problem is NOT fixed. I still get the same error message. Thank you for your input and work.

New .net4 true addon links are online.

Update is suggested as Microsoft has fixed a lot of bugs with this release

@pdl808:
According to our tests, US TurboTax 2011 seems to work flawlessly now.
Latest one has been done on a just installed XP SP3 MSDN Virtual Machine and nothing else.
Then .net 4 true addon has been extracted on desktop and installed by clicking on netfx40.inf file.
After 10 minutes installation was complete so we have installed US Turbotax 2011. Everything went ok, just like yesterday tests.

I reported on 08 Mar that, on my computer, OnePiece_Microsoft.NET_Framework_v4.0.30319.276_True_AddOn_ENU.cab
dated 07 Mar 2012 did not fix my US TurboTax 2011 problem. I continued to get the same error message.

I did a new Win XP build today using OnePiece_Microsoft.NET_Framework_v4.0.30319.276.1_True_AddOn_ENU.cab dated 14 Mar 2012.

Now the US TurboTax 2011 problem is fixed. TurboTax installs without any error messages. The changes from v276 to v276.1 fixed the problem.

I wish to thank everybody for their work in pursuing this problem.

everything was already ok with DotNet v4.0.30319.276 (if the install from the desktop DotNet v4.0.30319.276 you'll see that everything is already ok), but when we tested last update pack v5.6.0 (the tests that we always do before releasing the new update pack) we have seen a compatibility problem with windows xp setup, already repaired immediately in DotNet v4.0.30319.276.1

I've noticed that windows update/WSUS has issues updating .net 4 with the previous version integrated. Basically updates are installed and show successful yet they are never actually applied. I attempted to uninstall .net framework via add/remove components but it is now prompting for the installation disc. Do you think this update will fix this type of issue?

The only issues with MU/WU were a long time ago, when .net addon included QFE-branch updates. They totally ended when it switched to GDR ones.
Which Addon version are you using exactly? And which update?
I think that something went wrong with the original integration, instead. Try to reinstall .net 4 in live system using the original installer. It will perform a repair if there's something wrong. If nothing will change, uninstall it. You can type in a Run window RUNDLL32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection NETFX40.inf,NETFX40.Remove
and then
RUNDLL32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection NETFX40.inf,NETFX40.CleanUp
after this, install again

could you clarify position on update pack please? Reading your statement above I could interpret two ways.

One) meaning the 5.6 update pack STILL has a bug.

Two) dotnet4 addon was thought to be OK but when testing the latest update pack 5.6 under certain circumstances dot net had a problem. This was resolved and the released version of update 5.6 is fully OK . The same issue was removed from a later a dotnet 4 addon in v4.0.30319.276.1.

He means option Two. Or better: UpdatePack 5.6 has been released already free of this bug, because bug in .net 4 integration has been discovered in course of UpdatePack 5.6 testing so it has been directly fixed and .net 4.0.30319.276 addon, which had same bug, got fixed with v4.0.30319.276.1

first post :)
as my username indicates, i've been a "lurker" for YEARS (just shy of a full DECADE)...
i'm no "newbie", but not exactly an "expert" either...

i've "finally" officially become a MEMBER of RyanVM :)
i literally reinstall Windows "at least" once a month - home and office...
i make most of my own installers/addons (with tips from this forum)...

.NET is one of the very few that is "over my head"...
i switched over to Onepiece .NET releases a few years back...
never had any problems with them - until the most recent releases (specifically .NET 2.0 and .NET 4.0)...

i can not, for the life of me, get 2.0 or 4.0 to install on a clean XP *CORPORATE* edition...
well, clean in the sense of it being the same exact SP1 with SP3 slipstreamed as my base install CD...

i've been able to slipstream Onepiece .NET releases atop that SP3-slipstreamed corporate edition for YEARS...

but NOT the most recent release - never needing to "debug" in the past, i'm not sure if you need me to or not...

i've had to resort back to "Silent .NET Maker synthesized" (what i used prior to Onepiece .NET releases) -
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/127790- ... xp2k3-x86/

this brings back .NET 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5 into my monthly installations, but i'm stuck in the mud for 4.0...

"Silent .NET Maker synthesized" hasn't been 'updated' in several years, but it "seems to" still do just fine with all hotfixes even past its last update (i use WSUS - http://download.wsusoffline.net/ - to pull in the needed updates)...


are their known issues with slipstreaming these atop Windows XP *Corporate* Edition?
any hints or suggestions?

many thanks in advance...
and many thanks for the years of files and tips this forum has provided me, should have "joined" YEARS ago...

update - just tried the .NET 4.0 on the brother's UNTOUCHED WinXP SP3 ("oem", not "retail") and having the same exact problems i've been having with my go-to Corporate Edition that i normally use as my "base"... then tried the 2.0, same exact problems...


what do you need from me in order to assist the debug?

as a side note, i've eliminated pretty much ALL other variables...
the most recent attempts being an nLite slipstream of the UNTOUCHED WinXP SP3 OEM with the ONLY addon being "OnePiece Windows XP Post-SP3 UpdatePack v6.2.0 ENU" - without success...

IE fails to install due to something that .NET has caused (i suspect)...
control panel -> add/remove programs -> add/remove win comp = .net 4.0 error that prevents the win comp add/remove from even functioning...


any thoughts/suggestions?

Please describe the system you are building both of these attempts on, hardware and software, ie OS, and the exact order you do things. Is ANY anti-virus software running while the build is in process? Are you building with full admin privileges, or with a restricted account? Is nLite only being run once? Have you tried using RVMi instead of nLite? Are the install tests then being done on real hardware or on a VM? If VM, which one? Since the behavior is the same on both versions of the OS, yours and your brother's, then they are probably not the issue, but have you checked the MD5 of both the Update pack and this addon? The above thoughts are the first things that come to mind. But if you still had failures using just the XP SP3 OEM + XP Post-SP3 Update pack, ie NOT this addon, then this addon is not the issue, right? And I don't think that .NET should be involved with the install of IE, so I'm not sure why you think the two are related. So I think we're still missing a piece to the puzzle. Good luck!

Cheers and Regards

NO anti-virus, HATE anti-virus programs, they only bog systems down and only people that surf for porn or illegal software "need" anti-virus :)

FULL ADMIN PRIVILEGES...

nLite only being run ONCE...

RVMi = NO, used it a decade or so ago, NEVER liked it, NEVER returned to it...

MD5's check out OK...


ALL errors encountered with the .NET 4.0 addon (this thread)...
the Post-SP3 has "this addon" incorporated, so that test was a test to try to rule out "this thread" - that test "failied", it gave the same EXACT error that "this thread" is giving - open add/remove windows components and a .NET 4.0 error dialog pops up, click OK, the add/remove windows components NEVER OPENS!...

the install of IE is just the first VISUAL clue that the slipstreamed installation FAILED...


i'm building these DOZENS of attempts on a fully-patched 32-bit WinXP SP3 AMD Athlon 64 3400+ with 2.0 GB RAM...

the ONLY "attempt" that WORKED is using the latest .NET 1.1 and NO OTHERS...

using the UNTOUCHED xp sp3 source and NO OTHER ADDON but .NET 1.1 *AND* .NET 2.0 also results in IE not being installed...

using the UNTOUCHED xp sp3 source and NO OTHER ADDON but .NET 4.0 results in IE not being installed *and* the add/remove windows components dialog being BROKEN...

ANY slipstream attempt with the "latest" 4.0 (this thread) results in a BROKEN add/remove windows components...

the .NET 4.0 is the *ONLY* "common variable" - it *HAS TO BE THIS ADDON!*...


if i were a "newbie", sure, you could just say to yourself, "just another newbie that doesn't know what he's doing" and just walk away, but i've been slipstreaming for nearly a DECADE...

the .NET 4.0 (this thread) really *IS* the ONLY COMMON VARIABLE on my DOZENS of failed slipstream attempts with the "latest and greatest" .NET releases (the 2.0 fails also, but one thing at a time, the 4.0 is the one resulting in "more" things being 'broken')...

I can tell you are frustrated, and I don't blame you. At least now we have clarified the more common error situations. I'm by no means an expert on this, so I'll wait for nonno fabio or Onepiece to comment now that you have provided as much info as you can. Sorry you are having troubles.

here's a screen-cap...
slipstreamed just moments ago...
it's from an UNTOUCHED xp sp3 oem with the *ONLY* addon being "this thread"...

and i did mispeak above, i shouldn't say that IE is not being installed, i should say that it's not showing up in the start menu like it's "supposed to"...
(Browser Choice? even though i'm turning that "off" with winnt.sif?)


edit: photobucket screen-cap removed in order to keep the photobucket "clean"...

@long-lurker:
nothing has changed with .net true addons latest releases, their structure is exactly the same of previous ones, only updates have been added, so I suppose Onepiece's .net addons have little or nothing to do with this: if they work before for you, they must work now.
We don't understand crearly: have you got problems in installing .nets? in integrating them? Everything seems ok when you run XP but .net aren't installed.
Only one failed addon in integration sequence is enough to make every following one crash.
Anyway your XP edition doesn't matter, I think you have errors in your latest CD instead. Remove every unattended option from your winnt.sif file, made an iso from the clean SP3 CD with RVMi (not Nlite) and manually install Windows step by step. See what happens at T12-T13 and post your setuperr.log file

my winnt.sif is the same exact file (minus the [Hotfixes] section)...
the same exact from "this" .NET 4.0 versus the "second-to-most-recent" .NET 4.0 - only "this" .NET 4.0 is PROBLEMATIC...

and it's the *ONLY* addon being integrated, so there is no failed addon in integration sequence prior to it...

RVMi is, to be perfectly honest, *NOT* an option...
i so *HATED* it when i *DID* try it that i have *zero* interest in returning to it - NOT when nLite works so *easily* and has worked for YEARS...

is RVMi "seriously" a *must*?
i will go that route *ONLY* as a LAST RESORT!...

the .nets seem to integrate just fine, the resulting slipstreamed installation cd will install fine, but AFTER the installation, the add/remove windows components is "broken" (see screen-cap above)...

the "second-to-most-recent" STILL WORKS...
ONLY the most-recent FAILS (2.0 and 4.0, as far as that goes)...


at this point, i feel it "necessary" to ABANDON the "most-recent" and RETURN to "Silent .NET Maker synthesized" - can anyone offer advise toward that objective? can it be "updated" for the do-it-yourselfer to include 4.0? is it still OK to use even though it hasn't been "updated" in a few years?

i am in-process of slipstreaming .net 1.1 thru 4.0 using RVMi...
then taking that "win xp directory" over to nLite for the rest of the installation DVD creation...

i'll update on it once complete...
(this is what i am trying to AVOID, needing to slipstream *TWICE*...)

AWESOME !!!... THANKS !!!...

i'd put money on it that the linked discussion *IS* the culprit...
that linked discussion is from TWO YEARS ago, but i *DO* remember having to "re-cab" these addons at one point in time, i distinctly remember reading that thread in the past and having to "re-cab" to get the addons to work...

THANK YOU, i had forgotten all about the "cab" issue...


cancelling RVMi integration, reverting back to nLite (again, all i'm trying to do is to AVOID having to slipstream/integrate *TWICE*)...

will "re-cab" and report my findings...


edit: the RVMi *plus* nLite "dual-integrate" iso was already completed by the time the "possible fix" discussion link was brought to my attention, so i'm installing that as a VirtualBox right now, might as well at this stage in the game... will demonstrate whether or not the .NET latest-and-greatest will indeed integrate into my source SP3's (no reason it shouldn't!)... i am all but CONVINCED that we are looking at the "cab issue", will know for certain later today...

edit2: RVMi *plus* nLite does *WORK* !!!...
ie, my SP3 sources are NOT the problem :)
it's nLite and "cab" files...
regardless, i "have to" use nLite (workplace unattended installs)...
RVMi "integrates", it does not make an install "unattended"...
it's "pointless" to integrate via RVMi if you have to turn around and run it through nLite to make it "unattended"...
"pointless" in that nLite will do BOTH in ONE PASS...
unless i just need to do more digging into RVMi, that is...

at any rate, i'm "re-cabbing" and will report my findings with an nLite *ONE PASS*...

The definitely oldest and best known problem at all with updatepacks, the failed integration! ...framedyn/srclient errors, missing links, no ie icons and so on...if you are really a long lurker, you know what I mean.
Onepiece gave you the right link. You can reinstall Nlite (who never knows...), extract and recab netfx40.inf file (but it's odd, Onepiece's uses latest makecab.exe from windows 8) or after integration extract dotnet addon, take out netfx40.in_ and change it with the one inside the CD or, again, extract newest Onepiece's update pack and take from there netfx40in_ file.

The reason I write about Winnt.sif is not that it creates a problem but it HIDES problems: with FullUnattended mode, Windows doesn't shows problems he encounters during setup.

Good luck

yep, i definitely know what you mean...
i've seen those failed integrations very frequently over the years...

it wasn't the first thing to pop in my mind with the latest .NETs failing in that there have been DOZENS of .NET releases "since" the cab issue discussion linked above and ALL OF THEM worked FLAWLESSLY and without the need to "re-cab"...

so yeah, i had forgotten all about it "in my old age"...
but hey, it did result in a new RyanVM "membership", lol...

As a "long-lurker" you do realize that the use of nLite in a work environment is neither authorized nor supported, right? I'm glad you got your problem solved, but you shouldn't discuss it further, and your employer should be made aware that your use of nLite is in violation of nLite's EULA. Just sayin' ...

Cheers and Regards

i was NOT aware of that as far as the HOME-OFFICE (ie, "workplace", i'm SELF-EMPLOYED) computer is concerned...

point taken, will NOT use it on THAT computer...


but the topic *IS* still relevant, i *AM* permitted to use it on my HOME *not-for-work* computer :)


to clarify, i'm not using "one" nLite'd CD/DVD for "several" computers...
i'm using the OEM XP cd's that CAME WITH EACH COMPUTER...

i would HIGHLY agree that "one" cd/dvd, complete with "product key", being used on "several" computers would be HIGHLY *ILLEGAL* !!!...

i am a staunch advocate for *LEGAL* software !!!...
it looks as though i need to re-read nLite's EULA "just to be sure"...

Thank You. Admittedly, I agree that home-office seems like a kind of grey area to me, but since you just said "workplace" I didn't know that's what it was. And yes, it is designed for personal use at home, so the topic is still relevant.

Cheers and Regards

it is indeed a gray area...
i once had a developer of "OpenOffice" on the phone to make sure i was allowed to use it, it was several years ago, way back in their "infancy", maybe my phone call was partly responsible for the EULA being so clear and concise nowadays :)

i haven't had any nLite developer on the phone but *WILL* if the EULA re-read is inconclusive...

I'm afraid this is impossible since the one and only developer of nLite is no longer involved with it, hasn't been for years, and is supposedly prevented from discussing it in any way. No one is involved with it anymore which is why it hasn't had any updates in years. But we, and all other reputable boards, are still bound by its EULA.

Cheers and Regards

ah, i see...

i don't really "need" nLite for the "home-office" computer anyway...
it gets re-installed only once every 18 to 24 months...

i *DO* "need" it for the THREE *non-work* HOME computers...
one in particular gets re-installed EVERY UPDATE TUESDAY...

ok, "need" is a relative word, but it's so freakin' AWESOME to be able to re-install and EVERYTHING work within two hours, and i mean EVERYTHING, personal settings and EVERYTHING...

Long_lurker is right. True4 addon installation of Windows crashes. So it is not fully compatible with nLite (
Clean pristine image xp with SP3, each integration repeated 3 times and the only True 4 fails.
Any solution?

1) download this thread's .NET 4.0 - it will be a .cab file...
2) download/install 7Zip - http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
3) use 7Zip to extract the .cab .NET 4.0 to a folder of the same name...
4) once extracted, rename the folder (i add a dash and my initials at the very end and remove the checksum)...
5) open that folder and use 7Zip to extract NETFX40.IN_ file into the same folder, you should now have a NETFX40.IN_ *and* a NETFX40.INF...
6) DELETE the NETFX40.IN_...
7) select ALL files/folders and use 7Zip to archive as a .7z (it should default to the name of the folder that you already renamed)...

Use your new .7z and integrate it (NOT the .cab) into your xp sp3...
