This is a little different than the normal. I build the Windows 7 Enterprise Edition using MDT 2010. All Windows updates are applied through WSUS. Within WSUS I declined KB959209 - Microsoft .NET Framework Family Update x86 as it
has been superseded by KB951847 - Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update x86.
When the build is complete and using the netfx_setupverifier.exe, I only have:
.NET Framework 2.0 SP2
.NET Framework 4 Client
.NET Framework 4 Full
Both the 3 and 3.5 .NET Frameworks are missing.
Going into Windows Features, there is no listing for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1. Checking in the c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework, again both 3 and 3.5 dirs are missing.
I attempted to do a Windows Updates against the MS site but it did not recognize these are being required. Attempting to load the standalone install give the popup to install via MS Features.
I am at a loss as to why these are not available, especially if they are part of the vanilla OS. What could have removed them?
Any insight is appreciated!
