VS 2008-deployment-launch conditions-link to framework 3.5


  • Hi,

    I need an advice with the link to framework 3.5 in launch conditions during creating the MSI instalation file.

    There is the link I have there now:

    but of course this one leads to the latest version which is currently 4.0

    my application needs version 3.5 in order to run. I thought the versions are compatible and the last one can do what the previous can do but I have information from my customers that it's not true. It doesn't work after instalation the 4.0 version but after they install the 3.5 version it works!

    If I click the link for 3.5 version ont the site it looks like this (I am in Czech republic):

    but of course I cannot put this link into the aplication, there is the nation code and my application is sold mainly in the States.

    I would like similar link to the previous one which leads to .NET Framework 3.5.

    I hope I described correctly what I need :-)

    Thanks for any answer

  • Hi,

    From my experience, the launch condition has a InstallUrl property which can be directly set to the the downloaded URL.

    Let me know if this does not help.
