Whilst installing .NET framework 3.0 Service Pack 1, I accidentally pulled the power cord on the laptop. When I started up again, it kept giving me the 2711 error message.
Cleaning the temporary file folders didn’t solve this. The answer was stowed away on a forum found via google:
- Go into Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs
- Find the ‘.NET framework 3.0’ entry and click the ‘change‘ button
- The setup will run, you should select the repair option.
- Once that completes, you can rerun the SP1 setup and it should work fine.
