.NET Redistributable package for VSTO 2008

Hi

I am preparing an end user computer for VSTO 2008. On the MSDN site it says to
"Download the most recent version of Dotnetfx.exe"
I am a little confused because the .NET Framework Redistributable 2.0 has this name
but the .NET Framework 3.5 doesn't seem to have a file like this.

Which is the latest version of Dotnetfx.exe (2.0 or 3.5)

dotnetfx.exe will not install on Vista, because the .NET Framework 2.0 & 3.0  are Windows OS components.

.NET Framework 3.5  is dotNetFx35setup.exe

If you are using the microsoft Setup Project to deploy your application, then right click to the setup project properties, click Prerequisites and check .NET 3.5. (download from Microsoft)

Hi

Thanks for that. There is no documentation on using a setup project in VS 2008. Would you know of any.

It is simple.
When you are finished with your solution, click File->Add->New Project. Expand the Other Project types and select Setup and Deployment. On the right window Click on Setup project, give it a name and hit OK

You have a setup project that will deply your solution to any computer.
Click one on the new project, you will notice some more icons on the Solution explorer. You mainlly have to set File System Editor and User Interface Editor. Play around with the setup properties.
