View Full Version : Unable to Install .NET 2.0 (crashes on dotNet.isc extract)

Product: IS12 Express
Platform: WinXP SP2

I'm getting a run-time error from the single-image setup.exe whenever I install my app on a machine that needs .NET 2.0 (the IS12 Express installer is configured to install this using the SingleImage Release settings).

A crash occurs if I point the URL to


or if I point the url to my own server hosting the full-size dotnetfx.exe file.

If I point the setup.exe to the installengine.com site, the small .exe file is downloaded just fine, then it begins extracting "dotNet.isc" and that's when the run-time error occurs (message displayed is: "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more information.") and the setup halts.

I can't seem to find anything on these forums or google. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your time.
