bare with me in this situation :P

if i didn't install .net (1.1 or 2, no matter), but just copied folders from \Windows\ directory
(assembly, Microsoft.NET and WinSxS) from another installed XP that had .net installed

what needs to be done, to "register" that components so windows can see them and use them ?

and do i need to export/import some reg entries ?

Virtually impossible with .NET. The setup routine needs to run. You could Regshot an installation and reproduce it but I believe there are complicated file actions that only the installer can do.

and copying just folders won't do anything at all ?

I mean, sometime when an app requires dll and user downloads it and puts it into same
folder it will work...

It needs miles of registry data. You could set up a virtual machine to run the installers on and take a Regshot and then transfer it to your live system.

When you register a dll all you are doing is writing things to the registry. So this can be mimiced with a reg file made by Regshot. The only issue I see is the Assembly folder. It has special properties via a desktop.ini...
