  • Hi,

    You can have installed both .NET Framework 1.1 and 3.0 in your PC. You don't need to uninstall .NET 1.1 in order to install  .NET 3.0.

    You can try to install .NET 3.5 SP1  from the following link. It will install .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, and including cumulative servicing updates to the .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 3.0 subcomponents.

    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1

  • Hi Desperate newbie,

    Thank you for your post.

    Referring to removal of .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows XP, it depends on the applications that are run on your PC.
    This means, if you have any application or program that is based on .NET Framework 1.1, you need to leave .NET 1.1 on your machine to make the application or program run properly.

    You can install both .NET Framework 1.1 and 3.0 on your machine. The .NET Framework has two main components: the common language runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework class library. The common language runtime is the foundation of the .NET Framework. .NET Framework 3.0 uses CLR version 2.0, while .NET framework 1.1 uses v1.1. They will not affect each other.

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

    Best regards,
