I am having a problem with Windows 7 and installing my Lightroom 3.6 on a my newer computer and getting Error 1935. I just spent 2 hours chatting with Adobe. Below is the chat dialogue. It describess my prior efforts. I have removed the serial number of the Lightroom product. Adobe blames Microsoft for this installation problem.

Sanjay kumar: Please describe the same issue and let them know the error when you try to install .Net
R Wagner: I looked at following page and followed the directions on this Microsoft page also.
R Wagner: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/0x80070002-problems-installing/fae333a1-0bbe-4926-9a31-9217d3369247
Sanjay kumar: Yes , I truly understand your concern and for this issue you need to contact Microsoft to resolve the issue.
R Wagner: Why doesn't Adobe and Microsoft figure this out instead of me spending hours. I will likely give up and find another photo product other than Lightroom. I will not be able to recommend Adobe either - if your software will not run with Window 7 - really this is like the most popular OS in the world!!!!
Sanjay kumar: I am really sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
Sanjay kumar: I'm happy to help. Do you have anymore questions for me?
R Wagner: Yea - what other photo software would you recommend? Not Adobel!!
Sanjay kumar: I am sorry, it is not the issue with the Adobe software as I have informed you.
