where to get the setup.exe bootstrap sample for .NET Framework 3.5

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
I've been looking all over MSN and I can't find this link. The one that I could find looks like it was for version 1.0 and it falls over since it can't find the dotnetfx.exe.  Which is now called dotnetfx3.5.exe instead!  So is there anywhere I can get the correct version of the setup.exe bootstapper file? 

(Is it just me or is it extremely difficult to find stuff on the MSN website!)

Great you've had a .NET Framework Setup Issue and now want some help getting to the bottom of it

Net Framework 1.0 Error 1904 during setup mscoree.dll H-result 2146232576

I cleaned off all my .Net framework files with the .Net framework cleaner. I then started at 3.5, installed it, went well, installed 3.0, went well, installed 2.0, went well, installed 1.1, went well, then, tried to install 1.0 redistribution package for my windows xp home and it stopped at almost the very end saying ERROR installing 1.0 ERROR 1904 system32\mscoree.dll failed to register. H-result 2146232576. I tried renaming it and installing the 1.0 again but still get the same error. i tried using the IGNORE option, it said it installed but i know the mscoree.dll isn't working. i used the installer cleanup tool also to no avail. i deleted the URTTemp folder and tried a reinstall. This didn't work either. Anyone know what I might can do to get this corrected? I have not done anything myself in the registry. I have used RegCure and registry mechanic but Net Framework 1.0 still gave the error when I tried to install. Any help appreciated. I did read something about 1.1, 2.0,3.0 or 3.5 might have a newer mscoree.dll file and that night be why I can't register the one I have. I need the 1.0 version 3705 though as one of my programs uses it. Also, i am now not able to put any of the updates on my computer. it downloads them but they fail to install. Example, net framework 2.o service pack 2, net framework 3.5 service pack 1, and net framework 3.5 family update. Thanks....

How to setup Query Result Shaping for LinQ to SQL instead of Entity Framework?

Hi, I am new to this, and I am trying to implement a linq query similar to db.Genres.Include("Albums") command from mvc music store using my current DB setup. I realize that the tutorial mentions Checlking the "Include foreign key columns in the method" when creating the tables in ADO.NET, but if I am using LINQ to SQL classes, then how can I obtain the same effect. And how do I use db.Genres.Include("Albums") to simplify my life? Thanks

Getting .net framework 2 not installed, when setup sql server 2005 express, though framework 4 is in

My platform is windows xp professional sp3, on a dell pc.  I want to install sql server 2005 express edition. sql server 2005 express edition service pack 3, download page, published date 12/15/2008, states "Install .NET Framework 2.0 or later", note the "or later".  It also states windows xp. .NET Framework 2.0 download page states windows xp sp2, and I have seen forum postings about a problem when it is xp sp3. .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer) download page, date published 4/12/2010, states windows xp sp3. I download .NET Framework 4, i.e. dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe, and install it. I download sql server 2005 express edition service pack 3, i.e. sqlexpr32.exe, and run it, and it does some file extractions, and then message "The Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 is not installed. Please install before running Setup." Is this the expected behaviour?  Would I be better using sql server 2008 express edition? Other info: There was a .net framework 1.1 on the pc to begin with, but I removed it, and ran the sql exe again and still the message. There was and is a sql server desktop engine on the pc, though it's never been used.  Thank you for any help you can give with this. ----Philip

how can I get the same nerddinner.Entities as mvc sample nerddinner using ADO.NET Entity Framework


DbClick the code behind file of NerdDiner.edmx,It reads "This code was generated from a template." on the top comment lines.

I generate my own .edmx  file automatically with VS2010, just found that the .designer.cs file didnt contains Objectset,Methods as nerddinner does

IDK which template hanselman used to generate this .edmx files,dont tell me he wrote it all by himself!

Shoud .edmx and its code behind file be generated automaticlly without hard-coding?

VS2010 setup using Framework 2.0 failed


When I tried to deploy the project using DotNet 2.0 using VS2010, it failed and no error message. I make sure all the Framework checkboxes have 2.0 checked. In the prerequisies window, I only checked the installer 3.1. In the Detected Dependencies, The Microsoft .NET Framework is 2.0. The development and target PCs are both XP - SP3. When I unpack the .msi file in the target PC and run the application, it crashed.

The only way to make that work is to use VS2005 to perform the setup. Of course, copying the files over to the target PC directory works. So, the VS2010 setup is unpacking something at the target that makes it crash. VS2010 fixed the code-behind fatal bugs and I cannot go back to VS2005 or VS2008. 

I also noticed that you need to install 3.5 before you can use 2.0 in VS2010... Anybody knows what is going on ?


Framework 3.5 SP1 Setup.exe reported error


I tried to install the Framework 3.5 SP1 on a Windows 2008 production machine.
I downloaded the complete package, then ran the installer.

During installation, Setup.exe reported an error (please see below). However the installer terminated normally and said that the installation was successful. It seems that the Service Packs for 2.0 and 3.0 installed successfully at least I see in the setup event, the two events

I am lost. What is installed and what not? The problem I had is :

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 has encountered a problem during setup. Setup did not complete correctl

Excuse my poor english.

Hi, recently i tried to run nLite program. Apparently it needs microsoft Framework 2.0 to run, and it just doesn't install. It says wait a minute or two while the setup intializes or something and it goes like "Setup has encountered a problem etc. etc." "Send report" "Don't Send ...". So i'm stuck because i want to use nLite to reformat my system, because i think there is a virus in it. By the way, on my PC they're not letting me go on microsoft sites, the virus i mean. I can only run the PC in safe mode without it freezing on startup at normal mode.. So i need help to install framework 2.0.

I'm using Windows XP Professional SP2 Version 2002, (i don't know if the rest is really needed, i just copied from my computer properties): Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T2310 @ 1.46GHz, 0,99GB of RAM.

Any help? :)

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.

Abstract Factory Design Pattern (Sample in C# and VB .NET)

An abstract factory provides an interface for creating families of related objects without specifying their concrete classes. Sometimes one wants to construct an instance of one of a suite of classes, deciding between the classes at the time of instantiation. In order to avoid duplicating the decision making everywhere an instance is created, we need a mechanism for creating instances of related classes without necessarily knowing which will be instantiated.
