I would like to deploy .NET framework 4.0. client profile via wsus.
I failed to import .NET framework 4.0. via Windows Update.
Does anybody try to deploy it via WSUS? Is it possible?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full can indicate whether .Net 4.0 is installed. But "the reg key exists" doesn't necessary mean .Net Framework is available.
For example, on Vista/Win7, if .net framework is installed, but user hasn't reboot the os as promoted, the reg key exists, but .net application failed to run.
Is there any way for C++ application to detecting whether .Net Framework 4.0 available?
I have the 1st of the two programs (above), and wondered if I should have it (the, "Client Profile" version); or instead, should uninstall it, and download the 2nd (above), the one (without, the words "Client Profile")? OR, are they essentially the
same? I'm an intermediate computer user but don't have alot of experience with deciphering between the types of .NET Frameworks (like the 2 above). Anyone familiar with this area, please advise. (P.S.: I never actually went to the download
center and downloaded the (1st) item (above). I just noticed it is installed (under, installed programs).
Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, 32-bit, PC desktop, cable modem, Dell Inspiron 531s. Installed RAM= 2 GB. Total disk (C:) space = 218 GB. (About 1/2 of this is free, and 1/2 is used).
I'm currently using a window 7 64 bit operating system fujitsu laptop and I've been trying to install a update: 'Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows
Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB2160841)'. However, upon many tries of installing the update, i still couldn't get it install. The error details for the update is Code 66A.
Therefore, after searching on Windows forum for solution for that error, i've tried to repair the Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Client Profile by following these steps:
A. Click on Start and click on Control panel.
B. Go to Program and Features.
C. Scroll down to Microsoft.Net Framework 4 Client Profile, right click it.
D. It will give you a choice of Uninstall/Change, click it.
E. Then, it will give a choice to repair.
After following the above steps, the repair did not succeed because: Generic trust failure.

When the author wanted to build a middleware Web client to connect to other applications over the Internet, he realized that the XMLHttpRequest COM object was not sufficient for his purposes. In order to build a Web client using managed code, the author had to use the HTTPWebRequest and HTTPWebResponse classes provided by the Microsoft .NET framework. These classes are used in the sample project as a substitute for the less powerful XMLHttpRequest COM object, allowing the author to build a full-featured Web client. They also take advantage of all the benefits that the CLR and managed code have to offer.
