I may have read your post wrong but are you saying the installation failed or you just haven't been given the option to do the install?
If you just haven't been given the option, then I suggest trying to do it manually yourself after downloading the Service Pack: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...ils.aspx?id=22
If the download is actually failing, then all I can offer is the fact that I run 8 different load gens all on windows 2008 R2 (Although it's standard version not enterprise).
I was at the screen where it tells me it needs to install the prereq's, and it was not allowing me to install them.
The solution was to have .net installed on the machines manually, and I also adjusted my User account settings and I was able to get the load generator installed.
Thank you for posting the solution, Corey. That happens all to rarely here.

I withdraw my thanks, Corey. A solution without a description of the problem is pretty useless.
I remember the original question, it was something like:
"Last time I installed LoadRunner I was given the option to also have it install the .Net 3.5 Service Pack Prerequisite.
The problem is this time when I installed LoadRunner it said I needed to install the .Net 3.5 Service Pack Prerequisite but it does not give me the option to install it like last time. What do I do?"
The solution of course was to go and download the Service Pack and install it manually.
Oi Vey! Even with thanks withdrawn, I didn't mean for that to happen. I was attempting to add my solution to my original post.
My issue was I was attempting to install a stand alone Load Generator on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit.
The install wizard got to the step that requested me to install a few prerequisites, including the first one of .NET framework 3.5.
I clicked the next button, and all I got back was a pop up telling me I needed to install .NET Framework 3.5.
Duh, right? That is what I am trying to do!
I had full admin rights to the box, so I knew that was not the issue. The issue was solved by having the sys admin install .net for me.
I also attempted to install WITHOUT adjusting the User Account settings, and it worked just fine.
I have seen this issue happen more than once. Im sure it is quite common.
