Hi All biggrin.gif ,

I was wondering would there be any mileage in trying to make Dotnet framework portable? Many hate Dotnet framework, it goes without saying but whether we hate it or not it is part of the software scenery!

Questions arise?

Dotnet framework like the programs that are propelled by it has undertaken various stages of evolution & has been incorporated within successive editions of M$ servive packs so the question at what point of entry do you enter the portable world. Having said that some people have not necessarily installed any further service packs albeit, my guess-ter-mit would be that they would be few and far between. However this would be a factor especially when file-sets & registry entries would need recording. I wonder also whether the internal structure of existing files are altered in the updating process?

Would be interested in feedback on this as so many programs are geared towards to Dotnet Framework these days so if dot net could be recorded in the installation process it could possibly be a candidate for portability.

I have briefly searched the net and the nearest topic I could find was centered around dicussions in respect Nlite and a version of Dotnetframework that had been "thinstalled or Thinapped" Sorry about the terminology but I think the majority will catch my drift???

Any thoughts or observations negative or positive woud be welcomed!

Regards & Best wishes,

P.S. All the very best to all Boot-land members at this Christmas festive time & remember don't forget about the real meaning of Christmas. For God so the World.... (That means each & every one of us as individuals)

addendum - Kewl new web site Nuno!!!

Hi ispy!

Long time no see, I was tempted to start a new thread at the community forum to see if anyone knew what happened to you.

------

Regarding portability, you should really take a look on maxrealqnx's work with the dot net app script for vistaPE.

It can almost certainly be used a the guide line for creating a portable app since it will mimic the install of the dot net on the target windows OS.

---

One other way to use his work would be creating a wb project that would install and uninstall these app scripts at the running windows on the fly but it will certainly be something easier said than done.

In either case, the app script is a good place to find references to registry keys and needed files since Max has already done a good work at debugging dot net support for Windows PE which is extremely restrictive as you certainly know.


Hope you get lots of sun, it's rather cold around in Europe these days.. brr.gif

btw: why don't you start the honors and create the boot land merry christmas topic?

(just an idea..)

Hi Nuno wink.gif ,

No worries I am still here! I am touched by your concerns but briefly to explain. I have passed this message to other Boot-land members by private PM.

Absence due to personal problems!

Thanks for the info will look into the information you have posted, there is also a compact version of dot net also which could provide some clues. I f you want me to remove the paragraph above I will duly comply!

Regards & repect,

Say no more. In Portugal there is a saying: "Enquanto h� vida, h� esperan�a."

This roughly translates to "While there is life, there is hope." and I truly wish the best for your nephew and family to have a safe recovery and not lose hope while there is a chance to try everything possible.

Hi Ispy
first of all : best wishes to your nephew

About the portable dotnet ...
It maybe not exactly what you want but if you look at MOA you will notice that it has a "portable dotnet" implemented.
Maybe prtable is not quite the right term - but in MOA you can load dotnet on demand - you don't need to add anything at build-time ...

Hi all biggrin.gif ,

Its looking extremely doubtful on making dotnet framework portable so for any program writers who are contemplating writing portable software avoid VB net, shame but there you go!

So in the interests of making this post remotely useful here is a link to a little gizmo that users may prove useful, tis called framework detect v1.0. It will tell you version of Dotnet framework you have installed on your PC. Here is a screeney when used on my PC. It is portable & simple to use, that which is marked in red is not installed & that which is illustrated in green is installed.


& here is the link to obtain:

I seem to remember that also Sanbarrow installs it on-the-fly in his MOA.
