Now install DotNet 1.1 with the command msiexec /i C:DotNetnetfx.msi /quiet /norestart

If you just start the MSI on Windows 7 you will see this warning:

The warning can be bypassed if you set this value in the registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAppCompatFlags]
“{11F1F8EE-7E7F-4F1D-BE93-B4D310F0760A}”=dword:00000004

The installation will also add a RunOnce action, and you might want to remove the entry.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunOnce]
“NetFxUpdate_v1.1.4322″=-

 

Settings and installation in a vbscript:

Set oShell = CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
oShell.Regwrite “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAppCompatFlags{11F1F8EE-7E7F-4F1D-BE93-B4D310F0760A}”, 4 ,”REG_DWORD”

RunCommand = “cmd /c start /wait msiexec /i netfx.msi /quiet /norestart”
oShell.run RunCommand,0,TRUE

oShell.Regdelete “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunOnceNetFxUpdate_v1.1.4322”
