    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 KB951847

    I have the fear. Anyone deploying this via WSUS yet, how does it perform on older hardware I've read a few horror stories online some complaining 10% plus stations failing to install correctly.

    I'm also trying to work out if the .NET 3.5 Family Update is now the primary program for patching .NET 2.0 installs. We have .NET 2.0 SP1 on our stations and they all report needing .NET 3.5 updates even though 3.5 is not installed.

    The advantage of .NET 3.5 SP1, is it also includes .NET 2.0 SP2 and .NET 3.0 SP2, so this may explain why you're recommended to install it.

    I have only had problems with this on a filthy old SBS 2003 R2 server. It has installed fine on all the other machines that I have put it on (Vista 32bit) and actually lead to a perceptible speed boost on older hardware with Vista. Seemed to install fine on the XP stations to but we don't have to many of them around any more.

    We haven't had any failed installs, but due to the size of the package it does take considerably longer than your average update to install. Plan your installation time accordingly.

    @ Michael, yes I've noticed 3.5 installing every version which is a bit of a pain on older hardware. I installed 3.5 yesterday and now my PC shows .NET 2.0 SP1 and 3.0 SP1 not SP2.

    @ SYNACK, We still have some P3 1GHz boxes around running XP and I'm trying not to kill them (well I'd like to kill them really).

    Just to clarify, .NET 3.5 also installs .NET 2.0 SP1 and .NET 3.0 SP1

    .NET 3.5 SP1 also installs .NET 2.0 SP2 and .NET 3.0 SP2
