Hi

Is there a away to install .NET client profile 4 with KB files? or can the KB files be installed as part of the Windows 7 deployment, then install .net 4 later?

Thanks

According to this reference (scroll to "About Windows Update" -- ~10% of the way down)
you may have to install .NET framework 4 Updates manually.

I had the same question once and was told to do a clean install, install all updates and then use imagex to receive a deployable, fully patched image.

Thanks I have downloaded the KB files, there may not be, but I find it difficult to accept that the only way is to manually run each .exe file (15 files), anyway to automate?

Two ways: use windows update, it installs them automatically or use unattended switches for the setups (which I don't have at hand but exist for sure).

Installing automatically was a secondary question.

The original questions were
"Is there a away to install .NET client profile 4 with KB files? or can the KB files be installed as part of the Windows 7 deployment, then install .net 4 later?"

I answered in http:#a39612107 with a reference suggesting that slipstreaming might work in deployment of Win 7 for many KB files but that .NET Client would probably have to be installed manually.

A split--300 points for http:#a39612107  and 200 points for http:#a39613620 would be fairer.

The question title is "slipstream .net updates". Can it be done? Yes, and I showed how. Did he have any benefit from knowing that it can be done manually, too?

MCKnife is answering the question in http:#a39613576 --not the two questions in the original post.  
There is no reference to slipstreaming in McKnife's answer.  Slipstreaming is what the OP said is wanted.

My answer showed what can and cannot be slipstreamed. Several .NET KB's are in the "Cannot" list.  
As we all have seen people here at E-E often find they cannot install .NET updates as part of a Windows Update session that includes many Windows Updates and are advised to install the .NET updates separately.

Don't get me wrong :)
You are absolutely right saying that you answered the question about what can be slipstreamed and what not. But part of his text was "or can the KB files be installed as part of the Windows 7 deployment, then install .net 4 later?" - wasn't it? And that's what I answered and that might push him forward.
Let's not argue about what slipstreaming should be called and what not - imagex is a form of integrating things into a deployable setup, just as slipstreaming is, as you know, anyway it helps the author.

I don't care for points, I just questioned the benefits each proposal brought. :)
Have a nice day. Any split is ok with me.
