  • this depends. you might have applications that rely on the older versions of the framework. incase you removed the older versions these applications might no longer work. thus, you'd better not remove the older versions of the .net framework.

    Based on my understanding, Silsable wants to delete the earlier version of .NET Framework like .NET 1.0 or 2.0.


    Hi Silsable,

    I agree with Thomas.

    Firstly, if you have upgraded .NET Framework to 3.5 SP1, you cannot remove .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, .NET Framework 3.0 SP2 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 because .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 3.0 are the prerequisite of .NET Framework 3.5.

    Referring to removal of other the earlier versions of the .NET Framework like .NET Framework 1.0 or 1.1, it depends on the applications and OS that are ran on your PC.

    For OS, here is a useful blog that shows what version of .NET Framework is included in what version of OS. See: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/03/14/mailbag-what-version-of-the-net-framework-is-included-in-what-version-of-the-os.aspx

    For applications, if we have some application based on .NET Framework 1.0 or 1.1 on your PC, you cannot uninstall it because we need it to run the related applications.
    If you're not quite sure about the related applications, I would suggest you to leave all .NET Framework on your machine. :)

    Hope this helps. If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen
