[Slim] .NET Framework 4.6.1 Full x86/x64 (2-27-2016)

Recommended Posts

If i install .NET 4.5.1 do i also need to install .NET 4.0 and 4.5 in order to have all the libraries or 4.5.1 already contains all the 4.X libraries?.


What about if i only install 4.5, do i also need to install 4.0?.


Thanks a lot and sorry for ur time!.

4.5.1 RC supersedes/replaces 4.5, which in turn supersedes/replaces 4.0 (you only need one)

Once 4.5.1 becomes final I will drop 4.5 completely, the only reason I maintain 4.0 is for XP users (4.5+ is not compatible with XP)

Strangely enough 4.0 is downloaded most, I think this is because Win Vista/7 users see Microsoft Update telling them they need to download 4.0 and they don't know that 4.5 is best for them.

Does 4.5.1 installer reboots PC intentionally, when installed with /ai switch?

I have never tried it, you could add /ai /norestart if it does


Currently it definately reboots, will try that...but first I have to set up clean VM...

Will report back, thank you :)

I've noticed for 4.5.1 the installer's name changed a little. dotNetFx451_Full_LDR_x86_x64_Slim - what does LDR stand for? Any update for 4.5.1 will be installed only via LDR branch? This has changed from 4.5?


And thank you very much for the update! :)

4.5 installer by default was GDR but I patched it with KB2519265 to change it to take LDR updates (these are non security bug fixes,) with 4.5.1 (it changed) there are 2 installers with 2 sets of files


netfx_Full_GDR_x*.msi       andnetfx_Full_LDR_x*.msi
If you ONLY care about security updates you would choose the GDR, but if you want security updates and "hotfixes" from the microsoft knowledge base you should pick LDR (these will fail to install if you install the GDR)

If you are using the default EXE and you want to install the LDR branch you need to use


<ndp451_installer>.exe /trainswap

LDR = Limited Distribution Release (same as QFE = Quick Fix Engineering)

GDR = General Distribution Release

Hi rick, thanks for the updated installer, any idea when it will be pushed on Windows Update ?

Also, if I want to keep only French LP, it is OK to delete all netfx_FullLP*.msi and locale folders in system and system64 except French ones (and editing the sfx config of course) ?
Or maybe it is better to add the French files in the En-US installer ?

Good day Rick. I would like to appeal to you with the request. Could you put installers language resources, as you have done in the next topic for further repacking your installer with the only Russian language packs.


Thank you in advance for your work, you are very simplifying life so I IT staff support.


I apologize for my bad English.

      - The addon will conflict with some Windows Updates (.NET 3.5 Family), so leave the addon's integration to the last.
      - Add main addon first before LangPack addon, to get ASP.NET service localization properly.
      - To function properly, .NET 4.7.x require D3DCompiler_47.dll component, which is found in either the current "Monthly Quality Rollup" or "update KB4019990". It is recommended to integrate it first, or you can install it later.

      Hi, since around 1.5 half years i am integrating Updates into our Windows Image at our Company. However i have noticed that even when all the latest Updates are integrated after installing the OS it shows a few ".NET Framework" Updates that couldn't be integrated (see Attachment). A year ago it were only around 10, now around 15. So its getting more and more, it hinders the usfulness of the Slipstreaming process a bit.
      Did anyone of you find a way to integrate this pesky ".NET" Updates into the Image?
      Thanks for the help.

      Adobe Shockwave Player v12.2.4.194 - Slim RePack [Installer]
      About RePack: Deleted Shockwave Player 10 files (that is required only is some old games/content) & improved/enhanced the compression (LZMA2). Reduced file size from 23.6 MB to 12.4 MB (11.2 MB Decreased). The installer source is Adobe's official distribution msi, so unlike the .exe installers, it DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY ADWARE/CRAPWARE/USELESS JUNK.
