I am running WinXP SP2.

I downloaded and then tried running the .Net 3.0 redist package from this location:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/thankyou.aspx familyId=10cc340b-f857-4a14-83f5-25634c3bf043&displayLang=en

It bombs every time with a generic failure message.

All I want to do is ty to get .Net 3.0 to work with VS2005 (not Orcas) and do some work with WCF. I'm seeing quite a few posts on the confusion of what exaclty to install.

I'm not sure why this has to be so complicated, especially if .Net 3.0 is supposed to have been released.

Can anyone point me to a clear series of steps of what to download, and where it can be found

Thanks for the confirmation...that is what I followed but the setup keeps bombing with a very unhelpful error message.

After reading a post from Aaron Stebner here (http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx) I tried running the SubInACL tool to see if it was a problem with permissions. And yes, it was. I don't think it will be very simple to get our network admin to change their security policies, so I'm just going to drop the idea. :(

I'll give it a try on my machine at home.
