Full redistributable package vs the bootstrapper RRS feed

  •  


    The .NET Framework 3.5 full install package includes all prerequisites and product components that could need to be installed for any processor architecture.  Basically, it is the union of the x86, x64 and ia64 packages and prerequisites.  The .NET Framework 3.5 includes the following prerequisites in addition to the main .NET Framework 3.5 product payload:

    .NET Framework 2.0 with SP1
    .NET Framework 3.0 with SP1
    MSXML 6.0
    RGB Rasterizer
    Windows Imaging Components (WIC)

     

    On the other hand, the bootstrapper decides what payload is needed based on the state of the system it is being installed on and installs them.  This requires internet access during installation.

     

    You may look at this for more information.

     

    Hope this helps.
