I need to deploy dotnetfx3setup.exe to about 35 xp machines. These machines are a member of a domain and I thought I could use a group policy to do it but it only does MSI. I also thought I could use group policy with a script but I am not a scripter. Can anyone help me do this? I need a complete solution and using the least amount of adminstrative effort. Thanks!

There is an example of a batch file that you could include as a logon script at http://sojoe.info/2006/12/21/how-to-install-microsoft-net-framework-30-silently/

Thanks KCTS,

I think this is exactly what I needed. I ran it manually and it works fine. However, I set up the script as a startup script on the computer configuration. I booted up the computer and logged in and it does not install the update. Do you know what I may be doing wrong? Thanks again!

I got the script run by setting it up under user configuration. However, I need it to run without the user having to be an admin. Any ideas?? I think that I would have to work something into the script.

I could not get this to work. We just went around to all the machines and installed them manually. However, I think that if I was using the full .net file for the install then it would have worked just fine. Thanks!
