.NET 3.5 SP1 Upgrades

leave a comment »

I’ve finished all of my upgrades to .NET 3.5 SP1 with no significant glitches or broken code. The upgrade included 3 Vista development machines and 1 test server (Server 2003). One Vista machine was 64 bit and the other two were 32 bit.

I realize that the Visual Studio 2008 SP1 installer will install .NET 3.5 SP1 as well, but I still went the route of installing the .NET service pack and then installing the Visual Studio service pack.

One of the Vista installs did give an error at the end of the install, but after rebooting, it had installed correctly. If you are patching your servers, be fully aware that you’ll need to reboot at the end, so don’t expect to get away with a live patch without taking down your server.

A friend of mine, Laurent Duveau, posted some simple instructions on performing a successful install. Make sure to do step #1 from his post if you have previously installed beta versions of .NET 3.5 SP1.
