I am customizing a distribution point for Windows XP Service Pack 2. The distribution point is set up to run a VBScript after OS installation that launches setup silently for several apps, including .NET Framework 1.1 and .NET 1.1 SP1. The commands are as follows:

.NET 1.1 - dotnetfx.exe /q:a /c:"install /l /q"
.NET 1.1 SP1 - NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe /Q

When the script reaches these lines, it executes the installations. These are for the most part silent, but I still receive the Windows Security Dialog box ("Do you want to run this file?"). How can I elminate this security dialog from being displayed? I have several other chained apps in the script (Windows Installer 3.1, WMP 10) that do not display this prompt.

As always, any help is appreciated :)

Try change the ZoneId from 3 to 1 or add the directory where the media is located as "Trusted site" and execute it once. This will remove the issue your having.

To change the ZoneId just run:
notepad "dotnetfx.exe:Zone.Identifier"
change to ZoneId=1 and save the file from notepad
This work sometimes.

Thanks for the info. I found a cool utility called 'Streams' on www.sysinternals.com that removed the stream information from the file, thus enabling a fully silent installation.

PudgeRok, the tool from sysinternals will remove the identifier (Zone.Identifier) from the file which is a good thing for you. Sometimes that doesn't work so by using the Trusted Site solution that will manage to solve the issue in such cases.
