request for .net 4 bootstrapper with windows imaging component (wic)

Feb 18, 2011 at 5:38 AM

Hi,

I never realized how much of a pain its going to be to just get .net4 installed on client machines.

I think this is a general requirement for everyone today, the internet is littered with questions, the closest I could come to one is just this post:

http://dotnetinstaller.codeplex.com/discussions/216703?ProjectName=dotnetinstaller

 

I don't know much about deployment or bootstrappers, I've spent a few hours trying to customize/edit the xml on that post.

 

I and (I'm guessing the community) would be VERY very grateful if someone just posted a configuration to install .net4 with a check for WIC. I've found a WIX bootstrapper for WIC here but like I said I'm new to this and I've had some trouble translating it! =(

 

Would really appreciate any help here.

 

Regards,

Gideon

That thread has a working configuration file, but I would try to go through the DNI doc for a bit and just build it yourself. It will help you familiarize yourself with concepts and stuff like that.
