.NET Framework 3.5 + SP1 install without internet

(my apologizes for this re-post, but I had to do this in order to beneift
from my MSDN guaranteed answer by Microsoft)

Hi,

We have to install 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 (52 MB).

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?

I can provide a logfile of the install if needed.


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:

Since you have MSDN, I believe you can download the full SP1 ISO and use
that to create your network share or CD to install.

I posted this earlier (did not know if you had MSDN). The instructions for
setting up on an Intranet network share are found in the Visual Studio 2008
SP1 read me. There may be a readme attached to .NET 3.5 SP1 (subset of the
VS 2008 SP1 package) which has the admin deployment instructions, as well.

Hi,

I tried this
http://download.microsoft.com:80/download/A/2/8/A2807F78-C861-4B66-9B31-9205C3F22252/VS2008SP1Readme.htm
point 2.1.19 but it doesn't work. I tried it in 3 ways:
- d:\dotnetfx35.exe /createlayout D:\dotNetFX35 /q
- d:\dotnetfx35.exe /createlayout D:\dotNetFX35 /passive
- d:\dotnetfx35.exe /createlayout D:\dotNetFX35
Each time he tries to install the framework, and he never writes anything
into the 'D:\dotNetFX35'-directory...

As for the iso on MSDN: I can't find any iso overthere of the framework? The
only thing is the bootstrapper and the so-called full package of 237 MB
which isn't full (so actually it's the same as
http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe).
Are you sure there exists such an iso?


So there's still no solution to this problem.

What I need is:
- a REALLY full package of the 3.5 .NET Framework (with SP1) which doesn't
want to donwload anything
- the stuff (54 MB) he downloads and than installs so I can install it
already before and hope he won't download it again...


regards,


Pieter

I tried the same with the bootstrapper, but same result. It seems that the
/createlayout is only working on the VS 2008 SP1 package, not on the .NET
3.5 SP1 package.

Any other idea?

Can't Microsoft just simply provide the correct file(s)? Or is there any
marketign reason why Microsoft want to force every .NET 3.5 user to have an
internet connection? This would really put us in a lot of trouble, we can't
stay forever on .NET 2.0!

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...

Pieter,

I recently encountered a similar issue a customer of mine was having and found a direct download for "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 Full Package" here -- >

http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

Hope this helps,

Ryan

I'm curious - I keep seeing replies to messages that are frequently well
over a year old, like this one. Is there a web interface somewhere that
doesn't show the date? I'm not sure why anyone thinks that a reply to a 15
month old question would be relevant.

Hi all!
I have the same problem. And I found the answer.

I tried to install .NET Fw 3.5 SP1 on PC which don't have Internet access. I have downloaded the package (230 MB) and it's all the same tries download missed components (about 11 MB / 63).

The solution was in "Additioan information" on MS Download Center's page:
This package does not contain localized resources for non-English locales. By default, it downloads and installs the language pack that matches the language of the customer’s operating system. This may not be desired behavior when managing deployments of the .NET Framework. To avoid the automatic download use the following command:

dotnetfx35setup.exe /lang:enu


So U need to unpack .EXE package of Fw 3.5 and run dotnetfx35setup.exe with parameters /lang:enu so I have made and it works.

I Hope that could help somebody with the same problem.

hi all.
I downloaded dotnetfx35.exe(237M) but install it finished, I can not install MSSQL2008.
But I run dotnetfx35setup.exe(2.8M),everything is good. Maybe dotnetfx35.exe(237M) isn't that I need. Help me download link
