.NET 3.5 Framework install without internet


P

Pieter

Hi,

We have to isntall the .NET 3.5 Framework (with SP1) on our users computers,
but they can't be installed because the installer wants to download items
from the internet.

We downloaded the full package, but it doesn't seem to be full. The clients
have already 1.0, 1.1, 2.0 en 3.0 installed + their service packs, but still
he wants to download.

How do we have to install this without having an internet connection?


Thanks a lot in advance,


Pieter


PS:
We downloaded the full package here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=AB99342F-5D1A-413D-8319-81DA479AB0D7&displaylang=en
exe-file has 231 Mb, and is towards the end of the page:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

Apparently we're not the only people facing this problem:

There is instructions for admin deployment in the readme. YOu can find a
copy of Visual Studio SP1 readme here:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/A/2/8/A2807F78-C861-4B66-9B31-9205C3F22252/VS2008SP1Readme.htm

The step in question is 2.1.19

I cannot find the same for .NET 3.5 SP1, but the steps should be fairly
similar.

There is also this guide:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc160717.aspx

It has not been updated for SP1. It assumes you can set up a network install
point. I have not checked, but perhaps TechNet or MSDN have an install disk
ISO you can download (if you have either TechNet or MSDN that is).

I found a 'solution': Quite stupid: If you don't have an internet connctio,
he will still install the framework..
Apparently the downloading is for some securtiy fixes...
