3.5 from Windows Update - when ? Not in XP SP3 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I understand that .NET 3.5 will be a recommended update from Windows Update some time in the future:


    Any news on when this will happen ?


    I'm getting push-back from business/network admins on not using 3.5 as it isn't part of Vista SP1 (just 3.0 SP1), but needs to be separately deployed on all machines. I think Microsoft really missed the boat here - why wasn't 3.5 incluced as part of Vista sp1 ?


    Will 3.5 be included as part of XP SP3 ? That would GREATLY increase it's deployment and usage - please make this happen!

  • Hi Andy


    As of now there is no confirmation whether .NET Framework 3.5 will/will not be released as a Windows Update.


    Also .NET 3.5 is not a part of XP SP3.
