  • Yes, .NET Framework 4.5 is automatically installed as part of WS 2012. Because .NET 4.5 is an in-place update to .NET 4.0, you also have .NET 4.0 as well.

    You should find .NET 4.5 listed as a Windows feature on your system.

    You can also confirm the .NET Framework versions on your system with this tool:

    Run the tool with the highest available .NET version selected, then look closely at the first ~15 lines of the tool log. You will find the .NET versions list and see which versions are installed on your system.

    .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 is an entirely separate framework, and although it comes on the WS 2012 distribution media, it is not installed by default. If you wish to install it, please follow the instructions here:

    Scroll down in the article to find the section on WS 2012.
