Installing .NET 4 – Error 1719

Was having a lot of trouble installing .NET 4 on to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 SP1

The solution was:

regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\MSIServer

Change WOW64 from 1 to 0

cmd

%windir%\system32\msiexec.exe /unregister
%windir%\syswow64\msiexec.exe /unregister
%windir%\system32\msiexec.exe /regserver

And then it was fine 🙂

My error log looked like this
