Install .NET Framework using #Powershell (#TSQL2sday!)

, 2013-02-12

One of the really great things about being married to an MCM is that I can steal recycle his blogs, blame-free. Which is what I shall do today.

Sean wrote a great blog post in 2010 entitled “Today’s Powershell Fun“. Long and short, he shows you how to install the .NET Framework with Powershell, which you have to do before installing SQL Server.  Here’s the quick version, for your and my reference:

  1. Start > Run > Powershell
  2. Type Import-Module ServerManager
    (This loads the windows modules into your Powershell session.)
  3. Type Add-WindowsFeature AS-NET-Framework
    (This installs – actually, enables the already-available – .NET framework.)
The end.

And hey, thanks Sean!  Happy days, everyone…

P.S. Oh yes, I’m totally making this my T-SQL Tuesday contribution.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
