Deploying Visual Studio Components Individually

Visual Studio 2010

Network administrators can deploy Visual Studio components individually. The following tables show all Visual Studio components that can be installed, their locations, and their silent installation commands.

NoteNote

When you deploy these components individually, preinstall the following products:

  • Windows Installer 4.5

  • .NET Framework version 4

To avoid a restart in the middle of Setup, install Windows Installer 4.5 and then defer the restart until after the .NET Framework version 4 is installed. Make sure that a restart has occurred after Windows Installer 4.5 and the .NET Framework version 4 have been installed, and before Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Edition is installed.

The following table lists the components required prior to installing Visual Studio 2010.

To install a component unattended

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

  2. Type cmd, and then click OK.

  3. Navigate to the appropriate component directory (see the first table in this topic) on the Visual Studio DVD and type the unattended installation command for the component. For example, if you want to install the .NET Framework, navigate to the \WCU\dotNetFramework\ folder and then type the following command at the command prompt:

    dotNetx40_Full_x86_x64.exe /q /norestart /ChainingPackage "ADMINDEPLOYMENT"
