hi all,

trying to get some clarification on deploying ms .net framework 2.0 sp1. i've looked at the package knowledgebase about .net framework 2.0 but the details aren't exact.

i've downloaded netfx20sp1_x86.exe and extracted it. i have a setup.exe, not an install.exe. i created an sms package with the command line: setup.exe /i /q. this seems to run the install silently, but on some test machines it rebooted the system without notification or question. i can't allow this.

so is there either a switch for setup.exe to prevent a reboot, or should i be using an msi with a /noreboot? in the extracted set i've found wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\netfx_20a_x86.msi, is that the one to use?

thanks in advance.

Try running the MSI with REBOOT=ReallySuppress

msiexec /i whatever.msi REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb-

Extracting netfx20sp1_x86.exe is also not required. If you can deploy this .exe directly through sms then use the following parameters.

netfx20sp1_x86.exe /passive /norestart
