Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration


E

Eric Renken

OK, I have done a .NET 2.0 Framework install and under the Administrative
Tools I am not getting the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration
application. I looked for any MSC files in the V2.0.50727 directory and
nothing exists.

We are installing the .NET 2.0 Framework as part of our application. Why is
this tool missing and how do I get it back? Our customers may need to
reconfigure some of the settings this provides.

Thanks,

Eric Renken

Well I see that it is part of the SDK on my machine and that expains why I
have it, and they dont. Now how can someone who doesn't have the SDK modify
these settings? Can I just install that MSC during setup?

MS has, I think, made a mistake that only includes the Configuration applet
for 2.0 in .NET 2.0 SDK, not in runtime redistribute. So, for user to use
..NET, he may have to use CASPOL.exe in "DOS" window (how many people still
like command line tool after so many yeas of sticking on Windows?), while
more computer-capable developer can "enjoy" a GUI to configure .NET2.0.

So, if you want to use a "take-for-granted" GUI tool in WINDOWS to configure
..NET2.0, you have to install .NET 2.0 SDK (200 or 300MB?), even you do not
intend to program .NET2.0 at all. Or, you and/or your app's users have to
get used to use DOS like command and wondering where Windows is going.

Hi Eric,

You can use the CASPOL.EXE tool to change the Code Access Security Policy.
It's a command line tool that is distributed with .NET framework.

Man that is really bad. I will have to create a BAT file for customers who
want to use my program over a UNC.

Hi Eric,

The only way here is to create a batch file to execute the command line
scripts. But I think it'll be the same experience to the end user, and
won't give them any other inconvenience.

Like Norman said it just seems like Microsoft go back and forth from
Windows/DOS. You want to make the world easy to use with Windows, but to do
the cool complicated stuff you must know how to use DOS and a command line.
I could see having a command line option fot a tool so it can be scripted,
but it should always have its WIndows counterpart. Just seems like a giant
step backward to 1993.

Sorry, Eric. I'm just a support engineer, and I also have no idea why this
GUI configuration tool is not included in .NET framework redistribution
package. But thanks for your feedback. I will surely forward this to the
appropriate team.
