To create an administrative image for the .NET Framework 1.1 that is patched to Service Pack 1 with the SHORTFILENAMES hotfix, follow these steps:
Create an administrative installation by using the SHORTFILENAMES switch. To do this, type the following command at the command line:
This command creates an administrative installation point for the .NET Framework. The administrative installation point is named "myAdminInstall" in SHORTFILENAMES format. You can verify this by opening the myAdminInstall folder or the folder that you created. Examine the Program Files folder. This folder is supposed to be named "PFILES" and not "Program Files." This is the SHORTFILENAMES format.
Obtain the redistributable package for the .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 update.
The redistributable package file is named "Ndp1.1sp1-kb867460-X86.exe." After you obtain the redistributable package file, you must extract the contents of "Ndp1.1sp1-kb867460-X86.exe" to a folder. To do this, type the following command at the command line:
c:\NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe /t:c:\<path> /c
The Manifest.xml file and the S867460.msp file are extracted. You will need these files in step 4.
Obtain the hotfix that is mentioned in the "Resolution" section. Run the hotfix. The files are extracted to a folder of your choice where you will find the transform, Qfe3099.mst, and the Readme.txt file.
Apply Service Pack 1 and the hotfix at the same time. To do this, type the following command at the command line:
