How to include .net framework in the Setup Projects created VS 2005

Hi,

I am trying to create a setup project and would like it to contain the
..NET 2.0 framework, so user will not need to download it in his
installation.

does anybody know how to do that with VS 2005?

VS 2003 needed the bootsstrapper add in, is is the same here, or did
Microsoft add more tools to handle that?

thanks

Not quite sure how you would include the .net framework and not have
your setup be tremendously huge - the problem with the framework is that
there is a different installer for every language and if you install the
wrong language on someone's machine it could potentially break many things.

I have an app that is deployed that uses .config file settings. I have an update of that app that I am installing using a setup and deployment project. The basic setup process works fine. Now I want to get a little fancier. I need to have the setup process check for the existence of the .NET Framework and install it if it is not present. How do I do this? To carry this even a step further, how do I detect the VERSION of .NET...

Hi fellows, I have two simple questions regarding the Framework's deploy and the Setup and Deploy Projects: 1. As I've read in another posts and newsgroups (and as I can imagine), VS.NET IDE isn't capable of create a setup and deploy project and, in a elegant way, during the setup process, detect the absence of the Framework. In this case, I'd like to run the Dotnetredist.exe file, first, and the

I have created a setup project and was able to include the exe as well as the source code in the install. However, I have been unable to include the setup project source. Therefore, when I access the solution after the install, I get an error message stating the setup project is missing. In the 'Add Project Output Group' dialogue, all my projects are listed EXCEPT the setup project. Any ideas? Scott

We have a very large code base and use the partitioned solution model for development and deployment.

I have created numerous Setup projects with Visual Studio 2005. I have a current solution that is fairly complex with numerous projects.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
