On my Windows Vista, it takes a full 12 minutes to install the .NET Framework 4.0.
- a) Is this normal?
- b) If not, can something be done about it?
The reason I'm concerned about the speed is because it slows down the testing of our product installer considerably. Testing an installer is time consuming already, but this new .NET Framework installer makes it almost undoable.
- I did the test on a clean Vista inside a VirtualBox virtual machine. This setup does not show any performance issues in other situations.
- I tried both dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe and dotNetFx40_Client_x86_x64.exe. They both take approximately the same time to install.
