Bought CD. Install failed with .NET 4.5.2 error. Ran the Microsoft fix to 4.6.1. Failed again during test process and sent failure info to Microsoft. Ran the Microsoft fix to 4.6.1 AGAIN and bypassed the install test. Booted. Install failed AGAIN.
Filed for an extension, figuring that Intuit and Microsoft would get their act together. Here we are in October and I just repeated the entire process above. IT FAILED AGAIN.
I've used TurboTax for 17 years and never had a problem like this. I'll never use another Intuit product if this persists.

Also...check to make sure you are NOT attempting to install in compatibility mode...that may be setting the install to a windows XP setup...

You must install using Administrator privilege.
First disconnect from the Internet so you can safely disable your antivirus and firewall software programs.
Close any other open programs.
Insert the CD. It should start installing automatically. If it doesn't:
Hold down the Windows+R keys to open the Run window.
Click Browse, and then navigate to the TurboTax CD on your CD/DVD/RW drive (usually Drive D).
Double-click the setup.exe file.
Click OK to launch the installer.
After installing, be sure to re-enable your antivirus and firewall programs before connecting back up to the Internet.
Reboot (restart) your computer.
Open TurboTax and run the updater.
I have the same problem with this purchased Turbotax 2019 software, always failed with .NET 4.5.2 error message during the installation process (Never had problems with the previous Turbotax versions), had to file extension manually. None of the Recommended solutions from Turbo tax website to fix this problem works, also tried all the Microsoft software suggestions not working neither. Waste huge amount of my time and efforts to try to make it work, STILL nothing works (always failed with .NET 4.5.2 error message during the installation process )
Don't bother wasting time trying to "fix" this by re-installing .NET, etc. this is a very old BUG in their software, it will report that regardless on many systems that are perfectly fine, see this thread:
with a very simple workaround that bypasses that bug. As expected, they will not fix nor reply/admit 🙂
