.Net 3.5 Installation Problem RRS feed

  • Question


    I have tried installing .Net Framework 3.5 and VisualStudio 2008 in a system that doesn't have internet connection to it and everytime when i start the installation, it tries to contact www.microsoft.com and fails after some n retries.Is it possible for me to install .Net 3.5 and VS2008 without connecting to the internet.

  • You can try using the full redistributable package rather than the bootstrapper.

  •   Even when we use dotnetfx35.exe we find it still requires an internet connection. It eventually times out but it is impossible to install on 100s of computers. We are not only having problems installing .Net 3.5 without the internet it seems that just executing applications using 3.5 require internet access.
