    To create an administrative install point for the .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 x86:

    1. Download the full package fromhttp://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=79BC3B77-E02C-4AD3-AACF-A7633F706BA5 and save it to your local hard drive
    2. Extract the contents of the setup package by running this command:

      netfx20sp1_x86.exe /x:c:\netfx20sp1\x86 
    3. Stage the base MSI by running this command:

      msiexec /a "c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\netfx20a_x86.msi" TARGETDIR="c:\netfx20sp1\x86\AIP" 
    4. Apply the patches to the staged base MSI by running this command:  msiexec /a "c:\netfx20sp1\x86\AIP\netfx20a_x86.msi" PATCH="c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\ASPNET.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\CLR.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\CRT.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\NetFX_CA.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\NetFX_Core.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\NetFX_Other.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\PreXP.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\WinForms.msp;c:\netfx20sp1\x86\wcu\dotnetframework\dotnetfx20\DW.msp"

      With these steps, you will have an administrative install point for the .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 x86 located at c:\netfx20sp1\x86\AIP.  You can then install the MSI directly using a command line like the following:

      msiexec.exe /i c:\netfx20sp1\x86\AIP\netfx20a_x86.msi /l*v %temp%\netfx20sp1x86log.txt /qb VSEXTUI=1
