Improving .NET Framework Setup for Client Applications

It's great to see Scott pulled the trigger to tell the world about our .NET 3.5 Client Product Roadmap. Lately our setup team - which I'm officially part of - has been working in overdrive to put the pieces for the "Improved .NET Framework Setup for Client Applications" together and we're all looking forward to our first beta release. Once it's available I'll post more technical details outlining how it will help to ease your deployment, how it works and how you can customize and brand your client application's deployment experience.

Stay tuned!

what is the scope of the setup team: "only" (complex enough, I know) deploying .net framework/runtime to machines, or also deploying/updating applications built on top of that? What team would be responsible for creating a better experience deploying and managing .net server applications (especially large number of machines). I know MSFT has some server management tools which do part of the story, but from building an app in VS to getting it on to the server is still pretty much manual process.

Hi Brian,

Indeed our team is focused primarliy on the Client SKU and the customization story around it.

Concerning your question on server application deployments, drop me a mail at bartde@microsoft.com and I'll follow up on that.

Thanks,

-Bart
