distributing .net framework

Has anyone had the situation where they want to deploy an applicaiton
companywide, but the .NET framework is required for the application to work.
How did you address this situation? Is there some way to package the .NET
framework in with your application to be downloaded from a website?

All ideas and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Brent

Why not create a setup package including the Framework?

What I done in my company is set up a Active Directory Group Policy that deploys the .Net framework to every machine in the company. This makes it real easy to manage and ensures that everyone is running the same framework version

There is 2 catches to this though
1) You have to install it via MSI packag
2) Your Network Admin has to sign off on it :-

While I can't help with the second one the first one I can help with. The DOTNETFX.exe install file contains the MSI, you just have to extract it. To extract the MSI you just need to run the following command line in the directory where you have the framework install

dotnetfx /C /T:C:\netframewor
Now if you look at the netframework directory on C you will find a MSI install for the framework

Hope this help
