.NET Environment Causing Widespread Failures, Window 7 and Windows 8

DTS: 01282013-0901

 

Hello,

 

RE: .NET Environment Causing Widespread Failures

 

This is going to incredibly long, but the apparent culprit to the widespread failures is .NET. I was originally going to target the recent .NET 4 Environment from Windows update, but the issue is programmatic. The problem evolvded from another issue where upgrading to WIN8 from WIN7, when one of the updates crashed WIN8. After 12 hours, I forced-tricked the  WIN8 to reinstall. Ultimately WIN8 kept failing, but as a last attempt, I initiated my recovery (since I had lost everything not backed-up anyway) to revert back to WIN7. There was no problem except Windows Update failed a few times. I didn't think anything of it.

 

I went forward to upgrade WIN8 once more. After going through the process, the entire installation had failed, I was given the BSoD and the installation reverted back to WIN7, but with a new set of problems. Three things happened I noticed: (1) None of these issues happened when I first upgraded to WIN8; (2) Windows update failed in WIN7 this time; (3) I checked the box to received online updates during the upgrade. Somewhere, receiving one of the updates is causing WIN7 and WIN8 to crash. Of course, we know this by now.

 

Here's a few issues that happened after WIN8 reverted the upgrade down to WIN7. The uninstalling two programs (MSSE and bluetooth) claimed incompatible, in fact, were compatible, but the widespread issues are programs failiing due to a "machine.config" file. I discovered the entire file is missing, but that wasn't the real case. The error: Error parsing C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\config\machine.config  Parser returned error 0xC00CE556. MSDN reveals the "config" file as the configuration file for the entire system (I suppose meaning the .NET Framework).

 

I found that interesting because all of the Microsoft Installer (.MSI) files depended upon it, which meant any .NET programs and APIs would fail! The biggest issue was the original config file is in .NET Framework 2.0, but .NET must be turned on through Windows Configuration Interface found in Control Panel>Programs> left menu panel. There are two place to turn on .NET, but this was after trying to reinstall .NET 2.0/3.0/3.5SP1. The result was WIN7 couldn't activate the .NET Framework. In fact, the event was "Windows update failed. Reverting changes".

 

The result to-date is one of the new Windows Updates probably the .NET Framework 4 deletes all of the previous .NET Frameworks making all compatible applications and API defunct. It also shutsdown any possible way to reinstall the previous  .NET Frameworks for which most Windows Updates require. To-date I'm unable to get the machine configurations back into place because the original .NET configurations are in .NET 2.0/3.0/3.5SP1. These .NET Frameworks are cummulative. The MSDN extraction packages don't replace the machine.config file which is needed. More research is also needed, but this is real and none of the previous  .NET Frameworks extraction packages has succeed: Error parsing C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\config\machine.config

 

Any suggestions.

 

Thank you,

 

MS

Intiating sfc /scannow failed as " Repair process couldn't be started". So, the next step was to completely rebuild the .NET Framework using (remember to disable AVP):

 

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe update

 

After doing so, I was able to run "sfc /scannnow" and complete the process. I'll later review if the errors are corrected.

                  I initiated

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe update

 

Even after doing so, the errors still remain. I also attempted to turn on .NET, but when WIN7 attempted to apply the updates from turning on .NET, Windows Update failed, and reverted changes. So, at this point, .NET is the culprit to failing programs. I still believe .NET 4.0 is the culprit that destroyed the entire framework. Even after applying compiling the 64bit .NET Framework for WIN7, I'm looking at the error:

 

Error parsing

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v.2.0.50727\config\machine.config

Parser returned error 0xC00CE5566

 

Any suggestions.

RE: .NET Environment Causing Widespread Failures, Window 7 and Windows 8

 

                    I attempted several options incuding intiating Shadow Copy services, Windows Installer services, and Window Module services. None of these services had an effect on the issue. Disabling or re-abling .NET Framework 4.0 had no effect. The problem is directly relatect to .NET 2.0/3.x.  These services are required throughout Windows as it's cumulative. These services refuse to start! All-in-all trying to activate these services results in Windows Updates failing and reverting changes. Ultimately, the problem targets .NET 2.0 "machine.config" for 32/64 bit WIN7/8.

 

Any suggestions.

 

Thank you,
