    having been through a recent .net upgrade on two machines, the bootstrap or bootloader version can be used, which retreives only what is needed, which was roughly 30mb. If this version won't work, as I had a machine with this issue, the full redist is something like 200mb large. At that point I did not bother to check and see just how big it was extracted and isntalled, but 500mb doesn't sound too large for that sort of thing.

    I would much rather the smaller version had worked, but that machine has plenty of space, so not a loss I suppose.
