  • Question

  • do we have a merge module for .net framework 4.0? Can we ship merge module for .net 4.0 instead of the dotnetfx redistributable?  I could not find merge module.. :(
    Thanks & Regards, Gulab.

  • If you want to distribute the .NET Framework 4 with your applications you will need to include one of the redistributables.  If size is a concern, you might consider using the web bootstrapper.  The of lightweight bootstrapper packages will download only the required components from the web during setup. It requires an internet connection and will detect, download, and install only required components.

    You can find the .NET Framework 4 web bootstrapper package here: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Beta 2 Web Bootstrapper

  • To answer the direct question...   No, there is no merge module for .net (and I think it's safe to say there never will be).
    There are only the redistributable packages, which you must run by some kind of chaining, if you want to include it in your distribution.
