Windows 7: 4.0 Framework installation :Error Code 643

4.0 Framework installation :Error Code 643

also known as: .NET Framework update installation error: "0x80070643" or "0x643"

I've googled and tried everything I've came across and still no luck with installing 4.0 Framework

this only started happening once I used a tool to change my Windows install from professional to home, (i installed the wrong version and my key didn't work) so i used a tool to downgrade my account so i could activate windows

the tool i used was called: "Windows 7 Downgrader" and when the problem started happening (no longer able to run daemon tools)

I'm unable to run : System Info - See Your System Specs
as that also requires the framework i can't install.

  • I've disabled (and even uninstalled) my Norton antivirus
  • I've run the Microsoft Fixit
  • I've run the NetFxRepair Tool
  • I've run the dotnetfx cleanup tool and re-installed versions 1, 1.1 SP and 35 (35 won't install and throws an error saying to install 4.0)
