Silent .NET Maker synthesized 20100118 - W2K/XP/2K3 x86

Oh, it happens with all MSI files, not just the .NET Frameworks. I was asking you because you seem to know your way around MSIEXEC. In any event, since I use a VBS file to run my installers, I just have it open the log file, and I do a string replace of Chr(0) with "" to get rid of all the NULLs. It works fantastically.

Can you update your script so this reg key gets created ?

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\DC3BF90CC0D3D2F398A9A6D1762F70F3\Patches\9E0DE89293FE9BB33898F24ED18CCF08]
"State"=dword:00000001

And please remove this !

WARNING: NDP1.1sp1-KB928366-X86.exe regular hotfix is not present.

New hotfixes are: NDP1.1sp1-KB953297-X86.exe, NDP1.1sp1-KB971108-X86.exe, NDP20SP2-KB974417-x86.exe and NDP20SP2-KB971111-x86.exe

Thanks, KB971111 is Win2k only. Rest is XP also.

New version released!

It is a major update.

Fixes has been atomized, and grouped, folder structure has changed to adapt to the new situation, TMP folder now hosts all temporary files. Many changes has been made in the script to support all that.

It gives full support for the new regular and restricted hotfixes. It finally implements complete YumeYao's methods. Added: slimming down 3.5 SP# langpacks, removing frameworks subcomponents, and other optimizations.

It solves all bugs documented, and one new important about generic fixes for langpacks not applying on some languages because of a codepage conflict between the transform and the installer. Any of you probably have experienced this simptoms but not reported it, this bug has been around many months.

I've included links to many ready to use .NET releases in the guide.

Testing is a growing task as there are many new paths of execution. So despite I have made a lot of tests, for sure some bugs will appear. I rely on you to help me remove them.

See you later. :zzz:

Enjoy! :thumbup

Thanks strel, I'll check it. :D

BTW, you missed the title: it should be 20091029, not 20090929.

EDIT: OMG, so many *.mst's, I know it must be hard work. thanks again.

As of 7-zip 9.07, you must specify the type during extraction of executable files. Otherwise it will extract each individual resource and binary section. I already put in a suggestion to make that action switch-activated, but he says he'd rather have use the type switch if they don't like it.

I might have posted this earlier. Sorry if I'm repeating myself.

Got this while running _SNMsynth.cmd.

Did you missed the thread to post to?

About the other post with the error not finding FF addon file, I have to say I've seen this error ago but I though it was completely solved. In fact I cannot recreate the error, using exactly the same settings in .ini file. Can I have the file list? Any other useful info to recreate this condition?

Kurt_Aust

The add-on error is only a TMP\ prefix I dropped in the wrong place.

About the difficulties with hotfixes, when you say "not processed" I think you're meaning not installing, am I wrong? Anyway, were there any problems during building process? Have you checked a verbose output after removing ECHO OFF in the script? I have not made test yet, but a priori sounds strange to me, the way hotfixes are applied has not changed, and what is more strange is that only some of them are missing. Any extra info to help me recreate it?

DNF20_VC8_RUNTIME and DNF35_VC9_RUNTIME settings remove outdated VC runtimes subcomponents from 2.0 SP# and 3.5 SP# frameworks respectively, allowing to install updated ones from external files (see Suppported Files section above). Updated VC runtimes has to be installed previously to the framework from which the same the VC version is removed. They are pre-required.

I don't quite understand what you mean by the last line:

Updated VC runtimes has to be installed previously to the framework from which the same the VC version is removed. They are pre-required.

Do I have to update the VC runtimes on the system I am building the addon so I can remove them?

I don't think file not found messages came from cleaning subprocess. Making tests.

Glowy

Thx I'll check it.

atolica

First, there's a typo, sorry. I meant updated VC runtimes (that ones not comming from .NET frameworks but from the updated VC runtimes sources I posted in Supported Files section) has to be installed previously to the framework version from which the same VC runtime version is removed, i.e. if you remove VC8 from any 2.0 SP# you have to install VC8 from updated sources previosly to install that 2.0 SP# framework because it is a pre-requisite. The same goes for VC9 and 3.5 SP# frameworks.

Everybody

I'm fixing bugs.

Anyone more having problems?

Anyone experiencing difficulties on uninstall not finding the cached .msi installer to proceed?
