    A bit rude to followup my own mail, however ...

    As I mentioned the patch for v1.0 of the .net framework was failing when
    installing from Windows Update.

    Aaron Stebner bloged some details on what's happening at

    One way to check if the repair issue is affecting you is to grab the patch
    from (
    ) and run it manually. The silent install that WindowsUpdate uses swallows
    the error message.

    To apply the patch follow the instructions on Aaron's blog entry to extract
    the files from the 1.0 download (

    Note that if you do this V1.0 will register itself as the handler if
    you're running IIS. If you are running v1.1, or 2.0 betas you will need to
    re-register the correct version, either via the command line, changing to
    c:\windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework then change directory into the version
    number corresponding to the version you want to handle IIS requests and then
    run aspnet_regiis -i or by using the version switcher provided by
