View Full Version : Support for Install .net framework 4.5.2 in Installshield

02-02-2015, 08:49 AM

I wanted to know how can i Install .net framework 4.5.2 using Installshield 2014 , I have also installed SP1 for Installshield 2014 but still .net framework 4.5.2 is not present under Redistributables tab. Please suggest the best possible way to Install .net framework 4.5.2 as a prerequisite.
I tried installing running it CA as exe , but installation gave error in .net log file as - failed to grab execution mutex. system error 258

Is there any possibility of .net framework 4.5.2 getting added as redistributable as part of installshield , which will make the task much simpler ?

Here are the contents of a .prq file that can be used as a Setup Prerequisite for .NET Framework 4.5.2

The download URL should work as well.

Hi Clarrk.

Thanks for the help. 4.5.2 Installation is fine ... But application goes on reboot and continues installation after reboot. Is there a way to postpone reboot till complete application installation is finished. I dont want reboot to happen after 4.5.2 installation but after complete application installation , it could be either forceful or prompt can be displayed to user .
