Can a Patch be used to Upgrade .NET Framework?

Jump to solution

Is it possible to have a patch upgrade the .NET framework on the target machine? I am not very familiar with InstallShield, nor am I a coder, but I have been tasked with packaging our builds.  I've been able to succeed mainly by following the information used for prior builds and googling questions I've had, but I cannot find anything about a patch being used to update the .NET framework.  The standalone build I created does it, but my boss (who does not know how to use InstallShield) would also like a patch to distribute to clients.  We are still using IS 2016.  Any help or training resources that could allow me to learn IS from the ground up would be greatly appreciated.

In a word, no.
Patches cannot include Prerequisites.

You could create a Prerequisite-Only installer.
It includes no files from your company, but does include the Prerequisite of your new .NET.
