.NET Framework 4.5

4 posts in this topic

As you probably know, .NET Framework 4.5 was released as a replacement to .NET Framework 4.0, but with no support for XP.

List of changes: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171868.aspx

System requirements: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8z6watww.aspx

Bootstraper and Standalone download link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/5a4x27ek.aspx OR

Direct download link for the Standalone installer: http://download.microsoft.com/download/b/a/4/ba4a7e71-2906-4b2d-a0e1-80cf16844f5f/dotnetfx45_full_x86_x64.exe

Thanks a lot :)

BlackWingCat has recently added VS2012 support to his kernel so there's a chance that .NET Framework 4.5 will work in Win2k. If it works then it will mean that it's possible to do the same to XP (add the necessary APIs) and use it there too.

The Windows Module Installer :no:


This only means that the installer refuses to work :w00t:

You can edit it with Orca but I doubt that it will work even after removing the requirements. It's probably necessary to prepare a custom INF based installer.

Let me state once again - under the current conditions the files are not compatible with XP because there are unfixed dependencies related to VS2012. BlackWingCat has fixed them so it's possible to run VS2012 applications in Win2k. In XP it's impossible until someone adds those APIs to XP system files.
