WSUS? Or see if this package has the MSI in:
Does anyone know how we can deploy Microsoft .net Framework 3.0, service pack 1?
It is required for certain aspects of SIMS.net to function correctly.
It's not available as an MSI, so can't be done that way. I've tried making a Ghost AI package to deploy, but AI snapshop consistently crashes part way through the second scan.
Any ideas? We need to get this on 130 teacher's laptops, so installing it manually isn't viable.
Can you use WSUS to install one specific update?
The Microsoft redistributable package turns out not to be. It's a 2MB file which then connects to the Internet to download the rest. Still can't make a package out of it even if that works.
I have created a seperate package which installs all frameworks - .NET Framework 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 (including service packs) using a script. I'll post a link later this evening.

We use WSUS to deply ours.
Which aspects? - We run .net2 here with no problems on SIMS at all.It is required for certain aspects of SIMS.net to function correctly.
.net 3 is not yet needed for SIMS.net, only .net 2.0 and below.
Just to agree with people, you won't need the .net 3 for SIMS, just .net 2
But I have managed to find .net 1.0, 1.1, 2.0 AND 3.? MSIs, I can't remember where from, I think there was info on the MS site. I have used AD/GPOs to push out 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 so classroom PCs, but 3.? fails, and fails after 15-20 min install then 15-20 min restart (I gave up, as nothing NEEDS it yet...).
I suspect I'll head over to those Logistix ones...
I have just deployed .net2 via group policy after creating an msi following these instructions;
Once logged onto the server, open Internet Exploder and navigate to www.microsoft.com/downloads
The .Net Framework 2 Redistributable should be listed there.
Download the dotnetfx.exe file to the root of C: drive, then open command prompt and enter the following commands:
dotnetfx.exe /q /c:"msiexec /qb /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=c:\dotnetfx"
You should see a window with "Extracting netfx.msi" and "Installing" (it doesn't actually install it, is just part of the extration process)
When this is finished, close the command prompt.
Open My Computer and navigate to the c: drive, open the dotnetfx folder and check there is an MSI and 3 folders in there. Move to your preferred folder that use to deploy packages in group policy.
Deploy using your preferred method. Have fun
Yeah do as mentioned above. I had to do this for Vis Studio 2005. I also found a neat little tool to assign packages in a set order in one policy (which is handy for something like VS 2005 where there are lots of pre-req's which need installing prior to the app itself.) It is called Assigned Software sequence manager from Sywan.
Google it up, I use it frequently!
Assigned Software sequence manager sounds like a good idea.... but the thing is, if the pre-requisites aren't installed until after you want them, the software fails, then installs on the next boot... works for me.
At the moment I'm using the redistributable (sp?) edition and psexec to push it out, but it's labour-intensive.
