    .NET Framework 4

    Has anyone installed the .NET Framework 4 (KB982671) and the Client Profile (KB982670) for XP on their network? If so, have you encountered problems? Did anything break?

    Installed full version on a couple of xp machines, nothing broken yet. Did notice the Client Profile install can screw up horribily on Win7 (2 instances so far).

    Eeek, hopefuly this does not happen to me as I have just pushed this out to the whole network as we need it for a new tool that we are going to be using.

    Seems to be installing fine on Windows 7x64 via WSUS on our gear so far.

    Installed the update on a few admin machines that have SIMS and FMS, and so far so good - touch wood. I'm now installing it network wide.

    Just been looking at updates for this on WSUS, did anyone experience the issues here?

    Why does .NET Framework 4 client profile slow down boot time network creation?

    Do you have the full framework or client profile?

    Did a WSUS install when it came out and didn't have any problems on XP or 7 - its now included as part of our standard image and we have no issues installing the updates.

    Isn't it going to be needed for the next SIMS upgrade? I've put it on XP machines with no ill effects.

    How do you download/install .net framework 4 in admin mode. the only version will use a setup.exe to run and then it it will expend the file(s) into temp folder. In past I used setup.exe /a when installing office is there easier to do the work?

    I've deployed it as part of an image (using XP SP3) and zero problems to report.

    Here's the script I use which you can change as required:

    Code:
    @echo off
    setlocal
    set PATHTOFIXES=C:\logistixonline.com\NET_Framework

    Just shows how bloated .NET is these days!

    I'm guessing you go for the v4 full rather than the client profile?

    The .NET 4 Full download is only 48MB and the .NET 4 Client is 41MB, so for a small 7MB difference, you may as well install the Full version.

    It's looking like .NET may be going legacy pretty soon anyway if MS jump on the Google/Apple javascript/HTML5 bandwagon:
