I'm using the uninstall tool provided by microsoft to remove previous versions of winfx. It tells me i'm missing 2 files to complete the uninstallation. indigo.msi and vs_setup.exe.

I will admit b4 i knew about this tool, i just went in to the add/remove programs and started uninstalling so thats probably when the needed files were removed.

My question is how to i get these files back. What do i need to install to get them back. I tried reinstalling WinFX Runtime Components 3.0 but still no avial. Any help is much appreciated.

That is the tool i talked about in the previous post. I start it and it acts like it's going to work. then it asks for indigo.msi and vs_setup.msi. Neither are on my machine and i need to find out how to get these files so i can successfully run the uninstall tool.

FYI, I have moved this thread to the .NET Framework Setup forum.

The log files provided appear to have been altered, so it is difficult to troubleshoot this.  Run the uninstall tool and then install the latest CTP.

Hi,

Please try the following:

1. Install the beta 2 version that you first had installed on the system.

2. Reboot the system.

3. Uninstall the beta 2 version from Add/Remove programs.

4. Install the RTM version of DotNetFX3.

What has happened is the uninstall tool was ran on the system and encountered an error while removing some of the components. This left the system in a half installed state. After step #3, check the folder %windir%\Microsoft.net\framework\v3.0 for any files or folders. If some exist, then there an error occured while uninstalling the framework. If this is the case, send the log files starting with dd_*.* to the location mention earlier in this thread.

Thanks,
Doug Hall - MSFT

First i want to thank the microsoft team for helping me research this issue. Especially Tom Beck who helped me out the most. However I did end up finding the solution myself and would recommend this process to anybody who has issues with getting old versions of winfx or .net 3.0 uninstalled. First I googled "remove winfx beta 2 registry entries" and got a bunch of good results. The one that worked the best for me was an article from Aaron Stebner's Weblog Using MsiInv to gather information about what is installed on a computer It shows you how to use the msiinv tool and then how to use the Windows Installer Clean up Utility. Hope this helps
