Situation

When installing GW client with install.bat (via ZCM for example) and using the /unattended or /silent switches a .NET Framework 4.5 error will appear. 

Steps to reproduce,

type install.bat /unattended from the cmd 
error will appear.


Resolution

This has been reported to engineering.

The workaround is to modify the following line in the install.bat file:

set GW_OPTS_DOTNETFX45=/q:a /c:"install /q"

to

set GW_OPTS_DOTNETFX45=/repair /q
