Dot Net Fx 3.5 SP1

They also posted: VisualC++2008SP1Redist_x86.exe (also the x64 and IA64 versions) (if applicable to AutoPatcher) and updated to SP2 for many Visual Studio 2008 Express items.
Do your thing.

I then searched Microsoft and could not find any such download as Dot Net Framework 3.0 SP2 (Beta or Final).
Checked AutoPatcher - it had no such item listed either.
Checked Add/Remove Programs and found Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack2 (Beta) - so, at this point, I'm a bit confused as to why .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Final is confused and/or is having a problem; especially since I could not find .NET Framework 3.0 SP2 (Beta or Final) anywhere.
Anyone else have a similar problem or a possible answer?

I hate patching .net
I hate repairing .net
.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 silently installs .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and .NET Framework 3.0 SP2. Neither of these seem to be available as standalone packages at the moment (but that will probably change). The final release of .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 is supposed to be able to handle upgrades from the Beta version. However, the Beta version itself had a problem with trashing earlier frameworks (i.e. .NET Framework 2.0).
If your installation is now trashed you may have to roll-back to earlier versions, which has to be done in reverse numerical order. That is:
[indent]1) Go to the Add/Remove Programs control panel
2) Find Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and uninstall it
3) Find Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 SP2 and uninstall it
4) Find Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and uninstall it[/indent]
In theory, you do not need to reinstall anything at this point, other than .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, since it is a complete slipstream replacement for all earlier version(s).
From the README file:
.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 install will fail on Vista if Windows Update is turned off

Had to uninstall version 3.5 sp1 beta and 3.0 sp2 beta to get 3.5 sp1 final to install ok; did not uninstall 2.0 sp2.

So here's Microsoft's advice:
Before you install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 on Windows Vista or Windows 2008 Server, make sure that Windows Update service is turned on.
