Installing .Net Framework 2.0 and the Service pack in the same deployment


  • We are being asked to deploy .Net 2.0 in our environment. What is the behavior if I create one deployment with .Net 2.0 and the applicable service pack in the same software update deployment? After 2.0 is installed with it be intelligent enough to know the service pack is immediately needed?

    We do not want to schedule these separately. 

    I know a task sequence can be created but was wondering if the above technique will work. Thanks for the information.

  • Hi,

    I don't think it will be able to do that. It's only downloading needed updates, and sp1 is not needed until the actual product is installed.

  • That is what I was thinking. Thanks for the information

  • Are you refering to the .Net Framework 2.0 service pack? If so, why not use the package provided by Microsoft that has SP2 slipstreamed into already?

  • Yes I am trying to install MS .Net 2.0 on servers and then immediately install the Service pack.

    Is there one install out there that includes .Net Framework 2.0 and its service packs? Can this be deployed via WSUS?

    Do you know if an individual Software update can be installed in task sequence? Like for example in Software update in SCCM i have .Net 2.0 downloaded in a Software update package. I know when creating a task sequence you can only install a Software distribution package or "All Software Updates or Mandatory Software Updates. But not an individual update

    Thanks for the help.
