Online install fails with authenticated proxy Internet connections RRS feed

  • Question

  • The .NET 3.5 online installer fails to install due to authenticated proxy internet connection.

    Why is it that authenticated proxy authentication isn't supported by Microsoft's online installers, this is crazy (note Java updater supports this and many others) as many corporate environments employ this scenario?

    Microsoft almost never supports auth proxies (note Mesh doesn't) - internet explorer the only exception in my experience.

    My app is a few hundred Kb and the 250Mb framework makes me any my customers eyes water. I was going to use the client framework but that is no better than a full framework install if you cant access the internet through a auth proxy.

    When will this be resolved (I notice the installer is a PREVIEW so I hope this is corrected before it goes final!)?
