This component can be configured by using Target Designer to exclude specified components from the bundle. Because this component includes a number of applications, its footprint is sizeable. To reduce the footprint of your run-time image, in Target Designer on the Components tab, clear the check boxes for all components that are not required in your configuration.


You can also use this component to resolve issues that are related to missing dependencies and application compatibility. After the component is added to your configuration and your application works, you can exclude unnecessary components from the configuration to reduce the footprint of your run-time image.

.NET 2.0 is included in the component dependencies of Feature Pack 2007. This results in a footprint increase of about 26MB, but provides all the functionality of .NET 2.0 and backwards compatibility for applications written using .NET 1.1. Only one version of .NET should be added to any configuration.
