hi!

I have an addon that installs but when I try to run it, it tells me that I need .NET v2.0 framework installed. Now this is where I think i got myself into trouble. Does .NET3 supersede .NET2 and .NET1? Or do you have to have 1 installed then 2 then 3?

Thanks for any input!

1.1 then 3.5 (which includes 2 & 3) then 4.0 will cover all the bases for any .NET based application you might run into.

I have Windows 7 home premium 32-bit, & I need to install the .net frameworks that the above quote mentions. My system used to have them, but a trojan corrupted them. Don't worry, I made sure to remove what was left of them as preparation for re-installing them. My question is this. There are 2 versions of 4.0, so which one should I install? Also, when there is a choice, do you recommend a Standalone Installer version or a Web Installer version?

The .NET Framework 4 Client Profile is a subset of the .NET Framework 4 that is optimized for client applications. It provides functionality for most client applications, including Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Forms, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and ClickOnce features. This enables faster deployment and a smaller install package for applications that target the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.

So, if you only want to run .NET 4.0 applications, the Client Profile is more than enough.

Cheers

some people say that 1.1 and 4 are enough since supposedly 4 covers CLR2
this true or all 1,2,3,4 are a must ?

The .NET Framework 4 is highly compatible with applications that are built with earlier .NET Framework versions, except for some changes that were made to improve security, standards compliance, correctness, reliability, and performance.The .NET Framework 4 does not automatically use its version of the common language runtime to run applications that are built with earlier versions of the .NET Framework. To run older applications with .NET Framework 4, you must compile your application with the target .NET Framework version specified in the properties for your project in Visual Studio, or you can specify the supported runtime with the <supportedRuntime> Element in an application configuration file.

Hope that helps

so this means that user actualy needs full bloat of 2, 3, 3.5 and 4 afterall ?
