Enabling .NETFramework, Version=4.5.2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've run a scan of a Windows 2008 R2 server and the scan tells me that the current version of installed .NET is 4.0.30319. I've checked in the registry and can see later versions under the SKU key. The latest version shows as  .NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2 (there are also similar entries for 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.3, 4.5 & 4.5.1)

    Are the later versions installed? If they are installed how do I disable 4.0.30319 and enable 4.5.2?

    If you find .NET Framework versions by viewing the registry, check for a DWORD value named Release. The existence of the Release DWORD indicates that the latest version of .net framework you installed.

    Each new version of the .NET Framework retains features from the previous versions and adds new features. The .NET Framework 4.5 is an in-place update that replaces the .NET Framework 4 on your computer, and similarly, the .NET Framework 4.5.1 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, and 4.7.1 are in-place updates to the .NET Framework 4.5, they can be installed together in one PC.

    If you don't need .net framework 4.0, you can uninstall it.
