Problems installing .NET Framework 3.0 Runtime

Recently I received a support call from a user trying to install our software but it was failing for .NET Framework 3.0 Runtime. In the logs for the installer it mentioned WIC (Windows Imaging Component) failing to install, but in reality all the problem turned out to be was that the computer was on a domain and still set up as a domain computer (but not actually hooked up to the domain). The local administrator account would not allow for updating any core Windows components without a Domain Admin being logged in.

Solution?
Change the computer back to workgroup instead of being a member of a domain.
