risk assesment tool for .Net 4.0??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to move windows app to .net Framework 4.0 but getting push back from infrastructure guys on the risk of deploying .Net 4.0 to the enterprise desktops (all XP SP2). Was wondering if any of you have good reference URLS or tools to help manage risk assessment and prove that having .Net framework sit on the client machines would not break other apps already installed. 

     

    Thanks in advance for your time.

  • Hi Santiago,

    Thanks for your post.

    First, the .NET Framework 4.0 requires Windows XP SP3 installed, so you'll have to upgrade to Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3). For more information about .NET Framework 4.0 system requirements, please see:

    As far as I know, I did not aware of such documentations about .NET Framework risk assessment released by Microsoft. But since .NET Framework is loaded by applications using it, a much higher risk is from .NET applications rather then the .NET Framework itself. And the installation of .NET Framework will not affect most of applications already exists in your system.

    If you have any concerns, please feel free to let me know.
