I ran across this issue the other day with a customer who was trying to do a remote client install onto one of his machines. The install failed with the error code mentioned in the title.

Usually the error code is a result of trying to install a client over the top of a previous installation of the client but that was not the case in this instance.

What I discovered was the customer had Norton Ghost installed on his target client. After uninstalling Norton Ghost, the remote client went through without a hitch.

I am not sure exactly why this would fail unless the GSS console recognizes installations of Norton Ghost as clients. Which seems to be the obvious reason. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thank you!

You asked what was the best way to perform this task, or maybe you discovered a workaround to do it.

I found an interesting article on the Microsoft Knowledge Base that explains a quick tip to easily run a Command Prompt. During the GUI mode setup, just press SHIFT+F10 and the result is a new Command Prompt Windows.

To silently install .Net Framework 2.0 with SP1, follow these two steps.

  1. Download NetFx20SP1_x86.exe from Microsoft
  2. Distribute NetFx20SP1_x86.exe via Deployment Server or Software Delivery Solution with the command-line parameters: /q /norestart

If the silent install finishes with return code 3010, that means that a reboot is required.
