Please give a link to both downloads.

You mentioned "extract". Is it a zip file? If so are you using a third party unzipper such as WinZip or 7-Zip?

"i am waiting"
You and everyone else LOL.

This is a online installation - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...

This is a manual installation, without extraction - http://www.filehippo.com/download_d...

It shows the error as 'Blocking Issues' . When I click for manual installation, it automatically gets extracted to Local Disk(D) instead of Local Disk(C).

Why did you download both? Just stick to the one from Microsoft. What - exactly - is the error message that you get when you try to install it?

The downloads don't appear to be zip files so I guess you just meant they are "installing" to the wrong drive. I suspect this is a clue to why things are going wrong. I know no way of correcting this specific install error (maybe someone else will).

Assuming your D drive is just for data, you could try this:
Uninstall .NET. Then go to "Device Manager > Disk Drives", right click and disable all hard drives except your main (C) Drive. Now do the .NET install again and see if that forces it to install in the right place. If so then, obviously, enable the other drives again.

Sorry to hear you are not laughing - cheer up, it's good for you.

Initially I downloaded from Microsoft website, when it is not installed, I go for Filehippo.
It shows the error 'system does not have minimum requirements'. I have 1.90GHz, 4GB RAM.

In your original post you said it was installing to the wrong disk. If it is looking in the wrong place this could be why it does not accept the requirements. I think it highly likely that if we can get .NET to install on the C drive then it would fix the issue.

Try the 2nd paragraph of my #4. There is nothing lost - Enable/Disable is an inbuilt feature which I use for different reasons. Just don't disable the C drive that's all (although I doubt it would let you). I can't guarantee it will then install in the right place but I think there is a chance as it can't install it anywhere else.

There is another issue, I just observed now, normally Disk C will have all the Administrative privileges, other Disks does not have Administrative privileges, here I am about tell that, when I move some file (say, here a .txt file) it will directly moved to the disk I required , but, here in my condition all the disk in my system automatically have Administrative privileges, when i move a file to other disk it asks for ''You will need administrator permission to move this file'' .If i click for 'continue' it will move otherwise it don't. I manually not set like this.

why it is like this?

We don't have an upload facility on here but there are various websites. This one requires no account:

You just use copy/paste to give us the URL it gives you.

"I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit recently"
"system does not have minimum requirements"

Did you look to see what the requirements are? It's not hardware, it's software requirements. Do you have SP1 installed? If not, that's your problem. And why are you downloading individual files rather than just running Windows Update?

ok, i will go for windows update.

this is the error I received => Error I received(when .NET is installed)

My friend give me the boot able DVD, I personally not raised the question about SP1, he also don't know the SP1, SP2 or SP3.

How to know installed windows is Service Pack 1 ?

One of many ways to determine whether Service Pack 1 is installed:

Start Menu > Control Panel > System and Security > System

"Service Pack 1" appears in the top section if you have it.

If .NET is not installing to the System Drive it is WRONG.

Re #17
My suggestion has already been given in #4 and #6. I can't be absolutely certain but provided you don't inadvertently disable the system drive then there is nothing lost by trying. If it works then you just Enable the drives again afterwards.

Based on the error message shown in the screenshot, I suspect
that there was no actual attempt at installation. It did not install
or attempt to install to drive (D). Instead, that may be where you
saved the downloaded file, which is fine. You just need to fix the
problem that gave the error message.

What are you planning to do with .NET?

If you have apps that require .net runtime library, it should be downloaded automatically (unless the app does not check on it). Windows update keeps track of the latest version of .net installed on your system.
