Summary0003391: consider removing .Net setup from HRD product setup
DescriptionI believe that .Net is installed on all versions of Windows we support. If that's true, then we should remove the .Net setup components from our product setup image.

Maybe I'm wrong -- if we're still supporting back-level versions of Windows that don't include a version of .Net good enough for our dependency, then maybe we can at least remove .Net from the product setup image and provide a web-based installer.

The .Net setup contributes about 50 megabytes to the size of the downloaded setup image. The .Net setup is required only to support QLM. No other part of the product uses it.
Additional InformationThis blog post has a table showing which versions of Windows include which versions of the .NET runtime by default.
