View Full Version : .Net 2.0 Redistribution download

07-18-2006, 02:10 PM
I have seen many threads which talk about the .net 2.0 "Copy from Source Media". I am using Basic MSI project, and would like to perform a "Download from the Web" since I do not want users to have to download the framework if they already have it installed. I have placed the dotnetfx.exe from the redistibution directory at the URL pointed to in the Release. The setup downloads the dotnetfx file but I get the following error when it tries to execute it:

11155: Error installing Microsoft(R) .NET Framework.
File C:\DOCUME~1\ ...\LOCALS~1\TEMP\{1F4....BC}\dotnetfx20.exe

I get the same error when I click on the file using explorer. It is as if the installer does not download the required .net framework file from the web.

Any ideas??

That is correct. The dotnetfx.exe wrapper we ship with the product does not have download capabilities. If you download the (slightly larger) dotnetfx.exe from the original URL, it will download the redistributables. You can host it yourself like you are with the copy of the local-media version.
