Hi,

Is there any existing MSI for .NET 3.0 that I can download?
I need it to a software I have to deploy and it would save me some time if I can download it somewhere.

I have google it but no success [:(]

Nevermind,

I downloaded this file:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=10CC340B-F857-4A14-83F5-25634C3BF043&displaylang=en

Open it with Winzip. And there is a .msi.

Is it me? Is it? I found it using Google in a blink. Jeeeeeeeez......

- Go to this page http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=10cc340b-f857-4a14-83f5-25634c3bf043&displaylang=en
- Click the link 'X86 Redist Package'. Admittedly, it isn't immediately obvious that you need to click this. Until you read what it says above it, of course. Alternatively, you can go directly to the downloadable package using this link
http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/F/0/3F0A922C-F239-4B9B-9CB0-DF53621C57D9/dotnetfx3.exe
- Run the EXE
- In the root of your C: drive will be a randomly-named folder (something like C:\5f01eae77aa232df540ba1586819ddd1), in which you'll find vs_setup.MSI and all the external files required.

Hi Eric,

You may also find the "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Deployment Readme" interesting.

Humm.... I cant manage to do the same with .NET 2.0. When I execute the .msi it says. "To install, please run setup.exe"
I found a guide on the net how to do a deploy of the msi to deploy it with GPO. But I dont want to deploy it using any GPO. Any tips?

You need to set the USING_EXUIH property to 1 for .NET 2.0 to work without the setup.exe.

Are you sure? I open the netfx.msi in ORCA but I cant find "USING_EXUIH" in the Property table.

EDIT: In the InstallExecuteSequence table i found this:
OR ADVERTISED = 1 OR ProductState >= 1) ) AND ( NOT (ADDEPLOY = 1 OR USING_EXUIH = 1 OR USING_EXUIH_SILENT = 1 OR ADVERTISED = 1 OR ProductState >= 1) )

But the USING_EXUIH i already 1.

Yes, as a condition.
You need to add this property to the Property table.
If this property is not present or set to 0 in the Property table it will resolve to false as with a value of 1 will resolve this part of the condition to true.

I add the property USING_EXUIH to the msi and gave it the value 1. Works fine!

After fixing the "exe-problem" i still cant get the msi to work.
When starting the installation with vs_setup.msi i get error 1309: Error reading from file. C:\Path to my installation file\Win\Microsoft.Net\Framework\UrtInstallPath\CSteupMM\SITSetup.dll
Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

The folder Win\ and subfolders does not exist (only have one folde - wcu) and the SITSetup.dll resides in the same folder as vs_setup.msi. The installation will generate 1309 errors for all files residing in that folder with that path that dont exists. Even if the folders gets created and I move all installation files into the CSetupMM folder, the installalation generates the same error.

I havnt found much about this yet, still searching. But it strange when so many others get it to work by just fixing the "exe-thing". It works fine when starting the installation with the setup.exe.

Hmm, this really isnt working.

To resolve the "installing with exe"-problem I had to remove a custom action in the vs_setup.msi. After removing the custom action - fine, no complaints about an exe. But instead the installation askes for the installation files (the eula files and etc) in the path below:
Win\Microsoft.NET\Framework\URTInstallPath\CSetupMM

This path is created in the same directory as the vs_setup.msi, but it is empty. After copying the files to that directory the msi-file starts but only installs 15 mb. When running the exe-file you get 65 mg of "lovely" data.

This seems to be to complicated than it should be.

And dont get me started on the 3.0 SP1.... [:'(] wtf!?

Anyone?

The user interface is gone too by the way, eula acceptans etc, when running the msi. And the installation process is over in about 5 seconds.

..............................
Not even an administrative install works on the msi.

Is this supposed to work at all or is deploying the exe the only way. I cant be the only one with severe headache over this?
