The setup incorrectly fails to detect my .NET 3.5 SP1 installation.
I’ve installed it using the official method as documented by Microsoft:
When I click the feature description in my Server Manager, it points to the following link:
“What’s New in the .NET Framework Version 3.5 SP1”
Furthermore, verifying the installation as described here – http://stackoverflow.com/questions/198931/how-do-i-tell-if-net-3-5-sp1-is-installed – I can also see I have the following version present and installed (among others):
3.5.30729.4926 (with SP key equal to 1).
Still, despite all that, the setup fails to install the pertinent components claiming that it cannot find .NET 3.5 SP1:
Not Installed: - Nsight Monitor and HUD Launcher Reason: .NET 3.5 SP1 was not found
On a side note, this information is only shown after the setup is “complete”, instead of running the detection beforehand, which isn’t really nice from the UX POV.
