.NET 3.0 silent install haning to check for updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a commandline parameter I can use when installing .NET 3 to disable checking for updates.  My commandline silent install had been working fine, but lately it has been hanging and showing a systray icon asking my users whether they would like to check for updates.

    Thanks!

  • Hi

     

    As far as I know, there is no such a switch to turn off the updates which is a part of the product service as well.

     

    Backgroud:

    In the product life cycle, once we’ve released .NET Framework, inevitably it will be shipped with bugs.

     

    Then, they are fixed and released to those customers who found the issue as a release type called a hotfix.  Occasionally, hotfix(es) are considered security issues and are rolled out as a Security update and shipped to the world to solve a security issue.

     

    Here is the support lifecycle of .NET Framework 3.0: http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=12292

    Hope it helps.

     

    Thanks

  • Thanks for the reply, but that doesn't help my situation.

  • I've begun to receive a number of support calls from users that think our prerequisite install of .NET 3 is timing out.  I'm able to solve all of them by instructing the users to acknowledge the balloon tip about updating. 

    I've had users let the .NET 3 install run overnight and then finally call; the balloon tip about updating should NOT pause the entire world.  Is there anything that can be done so that this balloon tip nuiscance will go away?

    Thanks
