WMF 4.0 and Windows 7 MDT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am struggling to install WMF 4.0 onto my Windows 7 Deployment could someone help me out?

    I have tried so many things from Offline Installers to VBS Scripts and cannot get it to install.

    I need this for powershell scripts I would like to run on the machines. Thanks

  • In case it helps this is from the release notes:

    Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 (with Service Pack 1)

    Ensure all of the following prerequisites have been met:

    • Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5
    • Windows PowerShell 2.0 (if applicable)

    Installation:

    • Double-click the MSU file to start installation, or run the MSU file directly from Command Prompt.

    Known Issue: Partial installation without .NET Framework 4.5

    When you attempt to install WMF 4.0 on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 without .NET Framework 4.5, only the prerequisite QFEs that are included in the package are installed. The installation process attempts to install WMF 4.0, but fails. The two prerequisite QFEs remain on the computer after WMF 4.0 installation fails.

    To repair your WMF 4.0 installation after this failure, install .NET Framework 4.5, and then run the WMF 4.0 MSU installation package again to install WMF 4.0. The installation process skips the QFEs, and installs WMF 4.0.

  • Install dotnet 4.5 first and reboot before attempting to install WMF 4.0
