Can't install ,Net Framework on XP

Hate to bring this up on such an old machine but maybe together, we can make this work. I just tried to install a disc to install the software for an HP Deskjet 2400. The first think I saw was a message saying;
We have detected that Version 3,0 or 3,5 of the ,Net Framework is not yet installed. I went to Windows update and it downloaded the update but IT COULD NOT INSTALL IT. Went on to say to reinstall the disc and finish the installation after updating.
From this I gather that this printer is compatible with XP I just need to figure out a way to instal the update. Any ideas? Thanks



Try running .NET Framework verifier.

http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog%7C_Tools/netfx%7C_setupverifier%7C_new.zip

The .NET Framework setup verification tool supports verifying the following products:
.NET Framework 1.0
.NET Framework 1.1
.NET Framework 1.1 SP1
.NET Framework 2.0
.NET Framework 2.0 SP1
.NET Framework 2.0 SP2
.NET Framework 3.0
.NET Framework 3.0 SP1
.NET Framework 3.0 SP2
.NET Framework 3.5
.NET Framework 3.5 SP1
.NET Framework 4 Client
.NET Framework 4 Full
.NET Framework 4.5

See if .NET Framework verifier can fix what is installed and allow you then to update .NET via Windows Update (may not work).

If you cannot get .NET Framework running, you may need to run SFC /SCANNOW from an admin command prompt. For XP you will need the XP Setup DVD.

1] Download the full installer from Microsoft (Here)

2] Turn off your antivirus during before install

3] Install .Net 3.5

4] If fails, try running the Framework Verifier as per earlier suggestion (Can try that straight of the bat too)

5] If no luck, locate the installation error in your windows event logs (Control Panel, Event Viewer) and update your post here.



If the .Net Framework Verifier does not work you may need to remove .Net installations.

Try as per normal through Control Panel or use the Aaron Stebner .Net Framework Cleanup Tool from http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx



running sfc can help here : http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html

verify also event viewer - look for errors



Sorry for delay.
Looked at Event Viewer and going back to 10/19/13, I see error 1023 and 10005 for MsInstaller on a two or three times a day basis. I attempted to load the Full installer but it crashed and said it could not install. In looking at Add/Remove programs, the only listing I see that relates to this is;
Microsoft.Net Framework 1.1
Microsoft.Net Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1
I will now try to run the .NET Framework verifier but don’t feel very optimistic that it’s going to solve the problem. Since I still have the original installation disc, should I try re-installing the entire disc as a new computer? I know I will lose all programs that have been loaded if I do that. Another thought, should I try buying a plain o printer (not the all in one) and see if that will work?
John, I downloaded the zip file you mentioned but I don;t see an executable file in there to run the program. How do I run it?
