But, after the installation, we found that, if the user machine does not have .NET 3.5 SP1 or .NET 3.5 installed, the system will bring them to this page http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=76617 Only after the user download and install this Bootstrapper, and double click on the installer again, then only it will start install the .NET 3.5 Client Profile. But, I thought that the .NET 3.5 client profile suppose to be there for avoiding installing big huge .NET 3.5?
I guess I must be miss out something somewhere... please advice.
What's the Operating system you are installing on? Had the system installed other versions of .NET Framework?
Actually, .NET 3.5 Client Profile is targeted for windows xp Operating systems with no .net components installed. If the .net Client Profile installation process detects other operating systems or any other versions .net components were installed, it will require you to install .Net Framework 3.5 service pack1.
