.Net framework 4.5.2 installation fails

When running a silent installation of Microsoft .Net framework 4.5.2 in a SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence you might see the installation fail when using the application model.

The following is my silent installation command line "NDP452-KB2901907-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe" /q /norestart and in my test scenario this is done on a Windows 2008 R2 server.

smsts.log include this information:

Install Static Applications failed, hr=0x80004005 InstallApplication 12-06-2014 10:14:53 1928 (0x0788)

The log file "C:\Windows\Temp\dd_NDP452-KB2901907-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU_decompression_log.txt" gave this messages

In this thread I found a possible solution, edit the properties of the Deployment Type and enabled “Run installation and uninstall program as 32-bit process on 64-bit clients.”

Setting this as shown allowed the installation to complete.
