ConfigMgr 2012 : SCCM 2012 Client prerequisites

2:30 pm in client, ConfigMgr 2012, SCCM 2012 by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

Hi guys ,

Working for a customer on managing WES 2009 Clients with Configmgr 2012 . On of the requirements by the customer was not to install Silverlight 5.0 or .net 4.0 onto the WES2009 Device as they already has .net 3.5 in their core image.

The client prerequisites documentation can be found here on technet .

Silverlight is not required, Software Center and Software Catalog are the only things that need it.  You can specify a commandline switch on ccmsetup to not install Silverlight.  Example: CCMSetup.exe /skipprereq: silverlight.exe

For the .net 4.0 question : They require at least .Net 3.0+.  If it is non of the following .net is installed then .Net 4 will be installed ;

  • Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.0.
  • Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.5.
  • Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0.

Hope it Helps ,
