.NET - The .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile installation is SLOW. What are my options for a workaround?
Posted on 2011-10-31
I just built a little baby console app for deployment on 3 or 4 laptops. I didn't think too hard about deployment when building it. Anyway, I've deployed it on 3 machines, and it runs fine, but the .NET 4.0 Framework Client Profile installation is SLOW. The framework takes a good 3 to 5 minutes to install while my little app takes about 3 seconds. Are there any good developer strategies to get around this?
Code for .NET 3.0?
Do it some other way?
