.Net 4 Client Profile/Full silent install/repair/uninstall command line options

Aaron Stebner's WebLog - Silent install, repair and uninstall command lines for the .NET Framework 4

“I have previously posted command lines that can be used to install, repair and uninstall the versions of the .NET Framework in silent mode and unattended mode.  Now that the .NET Framework 4 has shipped, I wanted to post an equivalent set of steps to install, repair and uninstall the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile and Full.

The .NET Framework 4 uses a different setup chainer than in previous versions of the .NET Framework.  As a result, the command lines are somewhat different than in previous releases.  There are also a few differences in how the repair and uninstall processes work that I wanted to call out specifically:

  • There are different repair and uninstall command lines for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the .NET Framework 4
  • The .NET Framework 4 includes both a client profile and a full version.  Uninstalling the full version requires 2 steps – one to uninstall the extended component and another to uninstall the client profile.

I know I am going to need this in the coming months, so might as well capture it now. :)
