Is is possible to create a .Net Framework 3.5 Application that programatically installs .Net Framework 4 on the same server? Obviously the installation should not interfere with the running 3.5 app.

Examples would bring confidence.

These examples involve programatically starting the installation process, but not completing the installation through the program. (User driven process). Will keep this open a bit longer to see if solution for that comes through.

The steps provided do allow for programatic installation but not entirely but not entirerly from code. Close.
