[wix-users] .Net Quiet Mode

If you don't have .Net installed, how would you expect your MBA to run?  The prerequisite installer/fallback is to use WixStdBA to install the missing BA prerequisites.

Hello everyone

First off this is my first message and id like to say its great to be part of the wix user group.

My question:

Using WPF as MBA how can I run the .Net installer in quiet mode and pipe progress to the MBA?

Currently the WPF MBA is not shown (if .net InstallCondition=true), instead a window is displayed (looks like a Wix window) with the option to install .Net, if .Net InstallCondition=false then the WPF MBA is shown.

If I use WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.RtfLicense in place of ManagedBootstrapperApplicationHost (WPF MBA) then this UI handles .Net installation fine (showing progress).

How can I get the WPF MBA to handle quiet .Net installation using the ManagedBootstrapperApplicationHost an how do i hook up the .Net progress pipe?

Any help much appreciated.
