Windows   Windows – .NET Framework 4.7.1 install stuck / hangs



I needed to install .NET 4.7.1 to allow updating Exchange 2013 to CU 21.
This is the installer I downloaded and tried to install: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=56116

But the installation never ends. It remains stuck without progressing in the “Installation progress” bar. Tested both with offline and online installation:
Windows - .NET Framework 4.7.1 install stuck hangs

To install .NET Framework 4.7.1 download the msu package from the following link:
https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4033369

Windows - .NET Framework 4.7.1 msu packages install succesfully

It seems that there is some kind of problem with the other format, but the msu worked correctly for me.
