Hi,

Are .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 and .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2
available as stand alones or are they only available embedded in .NET
Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1?

So far I only find .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 (ia64) offered as a
stand alone.

Though they're not advertised, there are standalone packages (or rather an
easy way to produce them), as detailed here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vs2008/bb898654

However, these aren't supported on Vista, as detailed here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/bb822049

While you *can* install them separately, it's not recommended, and you might
end up with a broken installation. The only supported way to get 2.0 SP2 and
3.0 SP2 is to install 3.5. This is what end users will be doing as well, so
there's not much point in trying to keep it all separate.
