installing .NET 2.0 SP2


Molecule
 Share

Recommended Posts

the download page for NetFx20SP2_x86.exe, 01/16/09, 23.8MB

at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...1D-10E506DA9D0F

says that SP2 is for XP or 2003 systems.

When .NET20SP2 is installed on a 2000 SP4 + .NET20SP1 system, the installation completes without a problem (installer, 3.1).

My other choice is SP1 (a couple years old now), which is the last SP for .net20 for which w2k is listed as an operating system

(download page for NetFx20SP1_x86.exe, 11/19/07, 23.6MB

at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...cf-a7633f706ba5 )

question -- does anyone know of a reason not to install SP2 on a W2K system? maybe the API for SP2 throws out hooks for XP that 2K doesn't have? or should I stick with SP1 and track the SP1 updates (pain)?

if building a new system, do I have to install .NET20 gold first, before SP1 or SP2 as above?

(rant ... boy, tracking the .NET updates is hard, especially through the SB's from 2005)

hey thanks, MagicAndre

by rollup you mean the rollup for 2000sp4 (Windows2000-KB891861-v2-x86-ENU.EXE, 9/13/05) and not rollup for a .NET?

the site http://www.pagestart.com/netframeworkpart1.html

suggests that to install .NetFx 1.1sp1 on 2k system, one would install in this order

for 1.1sp1
1. dotnetfx.exe (04/03/03, 23.1MB, redistributable 1.1)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=262d25e3-f589-4842-8157-034d1e7cf3a3
2. NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe (08/30/04, 10.2MB, 1.1sp1)
3. NDP1.1sp1-KB953297-X86.exe (10/12/09, 13.5MB, SB09-061 patch)
4. NDP1.1sp1-KB971108-X86.exe (10/12/09, 6.7MB, SB09-062 patch
(1.1sp1 patches 885055, 886903, 928366, 925168, 947742 either na or superceded)

for 2.0sp2
1. dotnetfx.exe (01/22/06, 22.4MB, redistributable 2.0 gold for windows 2000sp4)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5
2. NetFx20SP2_x86.exe (01/16/09, 23.8MB, redistributable 2.0sp2 "technically" for installation on XPsp2, Vista)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5B2C0358-915B-4EB5-9B1D-10E506DA9D0F
3. NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe (12/17/08, 8.6MB, KB959029 "family" member for 3.5 compatibility)
4. NDP20SP2-KB974417-x86.exe (10/12/09, 10.9MB, SB09-061 patch)
5. NDP20SP2-KB971111-x86.exe (10/12/09, 1.6MB, SB09-062 patch)

does that sound right?

can these be installed with other patches from a batch using switches? (not slipstreamed)

as I remember it, the main points were /silent, /norestart and don't forget qchain or something at the end??

thanks again ...

yes, I mean the rollup for Windows 2000Sp4. This is needed to install .net 2 Sp1 and Sp2.

.net 1.1 is not needed. Only install it if an application (like Delphi 8,2005 or 2006) needs it to run.

can these be installed with other patches from a batch using switches? (not slipstreamed)

as I remember it, the main points were /silent, /norestart and don't forget qchain or something at the end??

yes, this is possible:

for %%i in (NDP20SP2*.exe) do %%i /passive /norestart

copy this into a new text file, rename it to installNetFx2Sp2Updates.cmd, put all NDP20SP2* Updates into the same folder and run the script.

for 2.0sp2

1. dotnetfx.exe  (01/22/06,  22.4MB,  redistributable 2.0 gold for windows 2000sp4)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5

5. NDP20SP2-KB971111-x86.exe (10/12/09, 1.6MB, SB09-062 patch)

this is ok :)

I remember seeing some commotion about slipstreaming the programs themselves ... and wondered if those same concerns applied to batch installing

do you know if it is possible to batch install the main program, dotnetfx.exe (01/22/06, 22.4MB, redistributable 2.0 gold)?

and then the service pack

NetFx20SP2_x86.exe (01/16/09, 23.8MB, redistributable 2.0sp2 "technically" for installation on XPsp2, Vista)?

thanks for your help!!

start /wait dotnetfx.exe /Q /C:"install.exe /q"

and then the service pack

this should work, but I haven't tried it.

start /wait NetFx20SP2_x86.exe /q

Vista already includes .net 2.0 and includes .net Sp2 when you install Vista Sp2.

Hi everyone, just adding a confirmation from my side.

DotNet 2.0sp2 installs on W2k sp4 rollup1 without complaining and seems to work, but I tested only with Paint.net shortly.

Wikipedia also means that just the Rollup1 is needed.

As a language pack, I used NetFx20SP1_x86fr.exe (replace fr by what you need) on 2.0sp2.

I'm going to add this here, instead of starting a new thread. I want to confirm that I've completely updated .NET 2.0 on XP, and that I won't have any problems avoiding Microsoft trying to force 3.0 and 3.5 on me by saying I still need to install the 70 MB KB951847 (which seems to be available only through WIndows Update.)

The few apps I've used that needed .NET mostly needed 2.0, with maybe one that wanted 1.1. (God forbid that newer .NET versions be backward compatible! Much better to keep many versions simultaneously installed, and really load up the system, the registry, and the hard drive.)

I started with no .NET software, and then installed .NET 2.0 SP2 (filename: NetFx20SP2_x86.exe). After doing that, the two apps that use .NET 2 worked. (It's kind of odd, since normally a service pack needs something to be applied to, but in this case, it works all by itself. Or does it? That's one question right off the bat.)

Then I applied these updates:

NDP20SP2-KB958481-x86.exe (Does this one contain the updates from KB95184 that apply to.NET 2.0?)

NDP20SP2-KB976569-x86.exe

NDP20SP2-KB979909-x86.exe

NDP20SP2-KB982167-x86.exe

NDP20SP2-KB2418241-x86.exe

NDP20SP2-KB2446704-v2-x86.exe

NDP30SP2-KB982524-x86.exe

(After that, Windows Update still listed KB951847 as something I should get.)

Applying these updates manually is excruciatingly, amazingly, disturbingly slow, even the ones with small file sizes. Another method is to slipstream this file into an XP install disc:

OnePiece_Microsoft.NET_Framework_v2.0.50727.3620_True_AddOn_ENU.cab

I'd like to know:

1) If there's a way to use this last file to install .NET 2.0 on a running XP system.

2) If my update list is complete as of early May, 2011, and without obsolete files.

3) If I'll have some kind of trouble for not including 3.0 and 3.5.

4) Why a so-called "service pack" (.NET 2.0 SP2) can be installed from scratch and seem to work fine for apps that need it, rather than being applied to an earlier version.

[if cars worked like this, we'd be spending most of our car time with the hood up, scratching our heads, rather than driving.]

1. Which last file? If you are thinking of the true add-on, then no.

2. You can check your updates for .NET 2.0 SP2 if you see this first post

3. No, you normally install the .NET Framework needed for your applications.

4. You probably misunderstood; .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 is a FULL package of .NET 2.0 with SP2 applied and packed, that's why it installs like a full installer.

Another method is to slipstream this file into an XP install disc:

OnePiece_Microsoft.NET_Framework_v2.0.50727.3620_True_AddOn_ENU.cab

I strongly recommend this as it makes things so much easier. Another (huge) advantage of this package (or any true add-on) is that it is integrated into the CD, so you can install applications that need .NET 2.0 at T-13 and they will recognize it and work.

That is what I meant. Too bad, but since I'm going to install XP onto a new hard drive, the point is moot for now.

Thank you for the answers.

That list, despite being updated several times, is a little old. For instance, NDP20SP2-KB974417-x86.exe should be replaced by NDP20SP2-KB983583-x86.exe.

I haven't visited the topic in quite some time, but somewhere in the last pages there should be a discussion on which updates are superseeded found it If not, just look at the screenshots on the page and you will see what other members used. Anyway, it looks to me like you're pretty much up to date for knowing these things

Cheers

This post lists most of the current updates for .NET 2.0 SP2:

It's also important to note than the newest .NET 2.0 updates for XP install without any problems on a 2K system.

On Windows 2000 SP4 UR1v2 I directly install update NDP30SP2-KB976570-x86 without problems but if I try with 3.0 dotnetfx3 and with dotnetfx30SP1 it asks for Windows XP.
Does installing updates for 3.0 SP2 on Windows 2000 have any utility or can it be harmful?
