The use of .exe.config file in Windows Slave Installer Module has prevented WinSW from running on machines without .NET FX 4+ installed since 2013. No one has reported that this is a problem in the past years. Instead, there are only issues regarding using .NET FX 2.0 executables on newer platforms.
Therefore, I propose the following actions:
- Safely switch to the .NET FX 4.0 executable in Windows Slave Installer Module.
- Re-investigate the need to use .NET FX 2.0 executables in Jenkins master and slaves.
