Deploy the .Net Framework

Version 2

    To deploy the .Net Framework do the following:


    .Net Framework 4.0

    Package your dotnetversion.exe up as a custom software deployment (for example: dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe)

    Under the 'Install command', use the following:


         start /wait ??SOURCE?? /q /norestart


    Note that the " " has been removed from SOURCE, the installation will fail without removing " " as it affects the following /q 3.5 SP1 (Windows 2008 R2)


    .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 (Windows 2008 R2)

    Since .Net is already packaged with Windows 2008 R2 it has to be installed as a "Role" instead of an executable, similar to IIS.

    The Install command will be:


         start /w dism /online /enable-feature /FeatureName:NetFx3


    The above is case sensitive for the package name so make sure it's "NetFx3".


    .Net Framework 3.5

    A sample script to do a full install of .NET Framework 3.5. can be found here.



    Here is an example of what the Depot Object will look like:
