             Bug #: 30074
           Summary: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 Developer Preview
                    installer needs stub wusa.exe
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.4-rc6
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: focht at gmx.net
    Classification: Unclassified


continuation of bug 30072

The installer now aborts due to missing "wusa.exe" executable.

I didn't find any installer on MS downloads that contains this standalone
component (only updates).

With a stub executable provided the installer is happy:

--- snip ---
$ WINEDEBUG=+tid,+wusa wine ./dotNetFx45_Full_x86_x64.exe -q
fixme:wusa:wmain stub: L"wusa.exe"
L"C:\\711ec06a13d5ed1f9b3e\\Windows6.1-KB958488-v6001-x86.msu" L"/quiet"
--- snip ---

At least the .NET Framework 4.5 installation finishes without further critical
error in basic ui or silent mode.

Although .NET Framework 4.5 is an update of .NET Framework 4.0, no previous
install of .NET Framework 4.0 is required (winetricks -q dotnet40).

One problem will turn up later: mscoree.dll is still builtin (Mono
placeholder/fake) which will prevent from loading CLR.

Actually this component gets updated through
"Windows6.1-KB958488-v6001-x86.msu" (Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Shared ->
KB958488) Windows6.1-KB958488-x86.cab.
Due to wusa.exe stub this update is skipped.

Maybe a winetricks recipe will take care of that in future (manually
extracting/unpacking the missing dlls from msu).
