      Sky Player

      Hey guys, could someone help me please?
      I tried to download the Sky player software so I could watch something I'd missed.
      The installer then told me I had to download and install Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework for the player to be installed. It downloaded the installation exe and ran it. It gets halfway through and I get this error :

      Error 25015. Failed to install assembly 'C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\msc orlib.dll' because of system error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

      It then uninstalls everything it just did and quits. The sky player won't install without this. I then tried downloading the .NET 2.0 software directly from Microsoft and installing it, and get the same message. I tried to rename the file it mentions so that it wouldn't be used but this didn't work either.
      I then downloaded and tried to install the windows installer 3.0 from the website (apparently this would help install .NET). This then told me that the installer that I was trying to install was an earlier version than the one I already had and wouldn't install!
      How do I sort this out?

      Hi zpfield


      Try download from here Download details: .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86)

      You will need to use Internet Exploreer to download from here so if your default browser is Firefox copy and paste the url into Internet Explorer

      Do you have Sp2 installed, you need this before .Net will install properly. You may have it, but check you have the latest Windows Installer available from -
      HERE

      Also clean out your Temporary files, both Internet and System.

      Note - When downloading always select the Custom install or you will end up with stuff you don't want.
