## Install different Net Framework

### Install different Net Framework

Good morming

For different application needs, I need to install different versions of net framework. Is it possible to add the option to updateinstaller.exe to install different versions, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7?

As MS currently drops support for older .NET Framework versions, wsusou will install the most recent one.
If you want to install an older one, you need to do that manually.

Although Microsoft continues to offer the option to install the 3 versions, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 through WIndows Update.

For my work, I have to install many operating systems and different versions of Net Framework and wsusoffline facilitates these facilities, hehe.

Would it be possible to help modify the au3 and customize it to install the three versions?

Thank you

As 4.5 replaces 4(.0),
4.6 replaces 4(.0) and 4.5
and 4.7 replaces 4(.0), 4.5 and 4.6
and all are (or at least should be) fully compatible, wsusou will just install the latest one (currently 4.7, 4.7.1 will follow in the next update of wsusou).
Also MS dropped support for older .NET versions (blog post from 12-2015/01-2016: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2015/12/09/support-ending-for-the-net-framework-4-4-5-and-4-5-1/) and will continue to do so in newer versions, releasing security updates just for the most recent one.
The intention of wsusou is to update the computer to a state, where it is safe to connect it to the internet, which is (due to this update releasing policy) just possible by updating .NET to the most recent version.

In addition to what aker said: You can easily write your own script(s) that install any .NET framework version in an unattended way. The parameters required can be found in the MS documentation, and in countless forum threads on the internet. Example, without any error checking:
Code: Select all
start /wait "" "Z:\path\to\NDP462-KB3151800-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe" /passive /norestart /lcid 1033echo DEU LangPackstart /wait "" "Z:\path\to\NDP462-KB3151800-x86-x64-AllOS-DEU.exe" /passive /norestart /lcid 1031
