hello! it's nice to know this project still perks interests to some members. with all due respect, i was away for quite sometime so i ask if strel is still on board? hope all's well from his end. tomcat & strel, with regular feedback from members have made this a very handy tool. just wondering if we could still look forward to using this to cover updates (& fixes) to .net. cheers!

The desktop pplication I'm developing requires .NET Framework 3.5 and I want to build an unattended (only progress bar) setup .

So , I extracted 20100118_SNMsynth and saved dotnetfx35.exe (231 mb) in the same directory . Now, I need help configuring _SNMsynth.ini .

I want to include only the files required for my application to run on 32 and 64 bit OS . What settings should I use ?

How should I set this "TARGETOS=" if I want to make a setup for XP/Vista/WIndows 7 ?

NEED HELP URGENTLY

Thanks

Hello ghostdlr,

I don't think you can use this for Vista or windows 7 (from reading the first post in this thread). The supported OS are 2K, XP and 2k3. The TARGET_OS option in the .ini lets you build on an OS different than the build machine (e.g. build for install on 2K using an XP box.). Also, I suspect 64-bit would require a different installer and is not supported by .net maker.

I'm no expert: I've just used this for creating a fully patched XP install disk along with HFSLIP. The last time I used it was March 2010. Whether it can integrate any subsequent .net patches I don't know.

You know that dotnet35.exe supports silent install itself, right? (/q /norestart switches)

I hope this helps,

Clark.

One more question .... does this require Windows Installer to work ?

I'm pretty sure the answer is yes; some of the packages inside are (as far as I know) .msi and/or .msp.

Is there any way to integrate a Windows installer setup in this pack ?

The new list for .NET Framework 1.1 (2011-05-13)


dotNetFx.exe
NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe
NDP1.1sp1-KB971108-X86.exe - W2K only
NDP1.1sp1-KB2416447-X86.exe (supersedes KB979906)

The new list for .NET Framework 2.0 (2011-05-13)


NetFx20SP2_x86.exe
NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe
NDP20SP2-KB971111-x86.exe - W2K only
NDP20SP2-KB976576-x86.exe
NDP20SP2-KB979909-x86.exe
NDP20SP2-KB982167-x86.exe
NDP20SP2-KB2418241-x86.exe (supersedes KB976765)
NDP20SP2-KB2446704-v2-x86.exe (supersedes KB983583, KB976569, KB974417)

All of them can be processed by SNMsynth but in case of KB2446704-v2 you may have to remove the "-v2" as the filename is too long and results in a "file not found" error.

As I'm using Windows 2000 I'm not really interested in making a current list of .NET 3.5 updates. Still it would be nice if someone else made an updated list for newer Frameworks :)

How do you integrate KB2416473? I'm looking for the registry changes needed.

I do have a problem with NDP1.1sp1-KB2416447-X86.exe, it seems to be in another format.

SNMsynth cannot process it. I get the usual popup that the switches aren't correct.

Any ideas are welcome.

Cheers.

I've just checked it and the problem with this one is not its format but filename :lol:

Rename it to NDP1.1sp1-KBz2416447-X86.exe so it will get processed AFTER the other older updates (which are KB8x or KB9x).

Thanks a lot! In fact I did rename the file but not in that way. Going to give it another try, I could never have known that.

Cheers.

Edit: Smooth, everything got processed and it also shows in the process data. Only thing is that the output file is smaller despite the size of the now included KB2416447.

The update probably overwrites some old files.

Strange because file structure is "normal", i.e. it's not different from the other updates. Do you receive any errors when processing the file in SNM?

I hope it's not connected with the KB2x filename again. I think it can be safely said that you should change filenames of the new updates in order to get them processed after the older ones.

I can't check WU now as Win2k's WU is not updated anymore and doesn't show the new .NET related updates (even though they can be installed in 2K without any problems...) but I'll try to check it later on an XP machine.

Solved I think :)
