Anyone having issues deploying Dot net 4.5.2 as a post install task on K2000?

Hi all,

I am trying to install MS dot net 4.5.2 as a postinstall task on K2000, task is set as an application, runtime envor set as windows and command line is

NDP452-KB2901907-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe /q /norestart

it always prompts for the Eula and a finish button, I want it to be silent and seamless..

3 solutions I know of to install with other management systems.

using /passive instead of /q

run it from a batch file

or extract the package with 7zip and run the setup.exe silently

If you run the exe from a command line with the /? switch, it will give you the available command switches to extract the content. Running an extracted MSI is usually cleaner than running the EXE.

Thanks both, after much Googling I tried extracting and running the various MSI's that are contained , also tried setup /? but all to no avail.  it seems to install as expected on a normal client, but when run as a posttask it prompts for Eula, very annoying for a silent build !  I'm currently trying the batch script method so fingers crossed

Well , its very early and not fully tested but zipping the dotnet452 file and a batch file that copies it to C drive and runs it (I know an overkill - but its a tried and tested method documented on this site - and works well for me for so far !) then I ran the dotnet452.exe with /passive and it seems to have so far installed silently with no message box, so thanks to SMal.tmcc (again !)

Zip it, launch with batch file, use  "/q /norestart" - that should take case of any possible cause. 
Ultimately it comes down to how it's being called and executed most of the time.
