Post-Setup .NET order? (Win 7, NTLite)


New Member
I want to slipstream the following KB/setup packages.
One image I made spent around 20 mins at post setup...the other one over 8 hours (left work, then was done the next day)

1. What order is optimal?
2. Where does the "Placeholder row for potentially deferred updates" fit best?
3. Can you add more "placeholder rows"?
4. Does 4.7 include 4.5 and 4.6 or does the computer still have all of them? (just like 4 doesn't include 3.5)
5. Which ones are obselete/superseeded? Anyone missing?
6. What about language packs? (My image contains both swedish and english..and want to be able to use same årepared ISO, no matter which language)

-Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 (in-place update to the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, and 4.7) (KB 4033342)

These 4 are listed together as November 2017 Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, and 4.7 (KB 4049016)
-Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 (KB 4041778)
-Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 4.5.2 (KB 4040977)
-(kb 4019990) Update for Windows 7
-Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5.1 for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (KB 4040980)

The first one installs Dot net 4, second one updates, and after that I want rollup of quality/security.
Anyone that can help me with a table/system/template for keeping it up to date?

1) it's executed top-down, so it's up to you what seems logical. E.g. patch goes after the main executable.
2) it's explained in the placeholder's description, basically I keep it at the end unless there is some restart command, then of course you want it before the restart or any kind of execution ending command.
3) it will insert all postponed updated into that one, it's not actually one row for update. Or what is your idea for the second placeholder row?
4,5) abbodi86 answered that
6) should be fine, you can choose which Windows UI to set by default in the Unattended page
