I am a little confused about how to install my application. Written in C# using VS 2010 and targeted for the .NET 4 Framework. It also uses a SQL Server 2008 R2 database.
In my installer I install .NET 4 Framework if not already present on the host machine.
For SQL Server 2008 R2 (with Tools) I understood I need Installer 4.5 and Powershell 1.0. The install of install of 4.5 installer goes ok but requires a reboot. The install of Powershell says it needs .NET Framework 2 SP2 - even tho' .NET 4 is
I decide to ignore this and carry on so manually install SQL Server 2008 R2 Express (with Tools). It unpacks and complains it needs .NET Framework 3.5 SP1!
My application has to deploy to a disconnected machine installed in the cab of a logging harvester so I can't rely on automatic wwindows updates.
To deploy my app with SQL Server 2008 R2 (with Tools) do I need ...
- .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and
- .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and
- .NET Framework 4
I had presumed all I would would be .NET Framework 4 since it is "mostly" backwardly compatible.
Install time and complexity is HUGE is I need all three Frameworks.
Can someone please clarify for me?
