View Full Version : How to install .Net 1.1 Framework without SP1?

Our application requires .Net Framework 1.1. We're trying to keep the download size to a minimum so we're including dotnetfx.exe which is 24MB.

Unfortunately upon upgrading to IS Express 12, it's also installing .Net Framework 1.1 SP1 that adds another 18MB to our download. This is just too big.

Is there a way to configure InstallShield Express not to install SP1? If not, what are recommended methods for installing just the 24MB .Net framework?

The reccomendation from Microsoft is to install the SP if you're installing .NET 1.1 so we just follow that.

There are bugs in Framework 1.1 SP1 that prevent us from using that.
Does anyone know how to install .NET Framework 1.1 without SP1?
I've tried through custom actions, but haven't been very successful so far...
