What are these files created by .net 3.5?

5 posts in this topic

I recently installed .net 3.5, and during installation I was notified that certain files would be placed on my storage partition (D:). There are now two folders in D:, as pictured. It appears these are setup files, but I'm not certain. Can someone please let me know if they are, and if they can be safely deleted? Thankspost-276866-0-89540600-1358650282_thumb.post-276866-0-62929700-1358650289_thumb.post-276866-0-76008200-1358650299_thumb.post-276866-0-99060900-1358650311_thumb.

Those are temp extraction folders. You can safely delete them.

I see this quite often the installer simply failed to cleanup after itself for any number of reasons.

It is normal. One of those directories is caused by KB954550-v7 within the dotNET 3.5 installer. They are safe to delete.

For an example on how to find and delete delete them with a batch script, download Kurt_Aust's Config_XP-64_date.7z file and look within Run1_XP-64.bat.
