DotNet 4.6.1 offline installer

NET Framework 4.6.1 missing in custom languages

Postby hbuhrmester » 11.01.2016, 07:35

The localized installers for the .NET Framework 4.6.1 are missing in the file static/custom/StaticDownloadLinks-dotnet.txt.

The script AddCustomLanguageSupport.cmd still says:

Code: Select all
echo %%i | %SystemRoot%\System32\find.exe /I "NDP46-KB3045557-">>..\static\custom\StaticDownloadLinks-dotnet.txt

but now it should be:

Code: Select all
echo %%i | %SystemRoot%\System32\find.exe /I "NDP461-KB3102436-">>..\static\custom\StaticDownloadLinks-dotnet.txt

It might break the detection of the installed Dotnet on Vista, offering 4.6.1 again and again, as it will never truly be installed.

I manually installed DotNet 4.6.1 with the full offline installer on a Vista SP2 computer and it completed without problems.
the 4.6.2 release on the other hand prevents installation under Vista and requires Win7 or higher.

It actually completed the install process fine, but, in the end, nothing was installed. Thus, while 4.6.1 doesn't prevent installing on Vista, the actual files might never install and register.

On the other hand, 4.6 officially runs on Vista and still has a few weeks support (like Vista itself).

4.6.1 may install on Vista but it doesn't get updates, at least this was so some months ago when I tested it. There were plenty updates for 4.6.1 on Win7 but nothing came up on Vista so 4.6.0 is the only safe option.
