Hi

When installing Windows 2008 Standard R2 (x64)
(I'm not using Win 2008 Enterprise), will the media
CD/DVD auto-install .NET 4.0, MSMQ 5.0 & IIS 7.5 ?

If not must I specify "Custom Installation" & at which
point of the installation it would prompt me for that?

If these 3 software are not found on Win 2008 R2 Standard
media, where can I download them?

All are available in the Microsoft Downloads

R2 is already coming with .Net Framework 4, MS MQ 5, Not Sure about the IIS version ..but should be above 7.

So if I select the "Standard Installation" instead of "Custom Installation",
it would install .Net Framework, MS MQ5 & IIS by default?

Or I'll need to "Add Windows Components" after Windows installation?

By Default it comes ... Same with Windows 7 you do not need to do Add Windows component since the OS itself pretty much required the updated framework.

After win2008 installation, how can I verify if .NET framework,
MS MQ 5 & IIS 7.5 are installed?

In Win XP we can go to "Add/Remove Programs" & can see the
installed software being listed.  Is this the same with Win2008?

Just 2 last questions:

Q1:
From the link you provided to download, I've found two MS MQ (shown
below).  So I'll uninstall item (a) & reinstall item (b) if I want MS MQ 5,
right?
  a) Windows Server 2008 Message Queuing 4.0 MP for MOM 2005.msi
  b) Message Queuing 5.0 Operations Manager 2007 MP.msi

Q2:
To uninstall, I just go to Windows 2008 "Add/Remove Programs" to
uninstall, right?  Then to install item (b), I just run the msi file?

I am wondering if you could post an image of your OS Add/Remove listed programs.

My view is if you are using a licenced version of MS Windows then you will get the files by default and you do not need to bother picking up the files seperately.

Let me know another thing, are you looking for a specific version like (Message Queuing 5.0 Operations Manager 2007 MP.msi) or you are looking for the most updated version?

For the .Net Framework .. be careful when installing it and only install if you are sure about it because later for uninstalling you will get hazards of "Clean Uninstall".

Default Add/Remove does not do clean Un-install you will be needing third-party utility for that.
