Downloading Configuration Manager 2012 prerequisites

If you like I have a demo environment with no Internet connection then you are also required to download the Configuration Manager 2012 prerequisites file prior to starting the installation.

 

  1. Open a command prompt with administrative permissions
  2. Navigate to .\Configuration Manager 2012 Install source\smssetup\bin\X64
  3. Run SetupDL.exe target dir (in my example SetupDL.exe D:\CM2012DL
  4. The total download size is 192 mb. and the total number of files is 14 with SQL Express and .Net Framework 4.0 being the largest files.

    Nice post! I put an invalid path as target dir and it prompted me for a path. So I canceled out and double clicked the exe and it popped up and prompted me for a path.

    Thanks mate! This gave me a start. For all of those who would be downloading their prerequisites on a separate computer need to make sure of a few things. I have explained them here. http://ashfaqshinwary.wordpress.com/2012/09/29/downloading-configuration-manager-2012-prerequisites/
