    Hi Maverick,

    The .NET Framework is an integral Windows component that supports building and running the next generation of applications and XML Web services. 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 3.5 uses CLR version 2.0 and so does .NET Framework 2.0 or 3.0, while .NET framework 1.1 uses v1.1.
    The Core parts are referred to speak as the 'Red Bits' and the rest as the 'Green Bits'.
    For more information, see: http://www.danielmoth.com/Blog/2007/06/net-framework-35.html

    .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 includes .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2. .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0 cannot be removed because they are the prerequisite of .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

    I can understand that you want to save the disk space with your deployment. Here is a useful thread that shows how to redeploy .NET Framework with applications. See: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/netfxsetup/thread/dbb5f8c4-919a-4587-a39c-16733311db38/

    I hope this information will be helpful.

    Thanks


    Hi Cindy,

    Referring to removal of any the earlier versions of the .NET Framework, it depends on the applications and OS that are ran on your PC.

    For applications, if you have some application based on .NET Framework 3.5 on your PC, you cannot remove .NET Framework 2.0, .NET Framework 3.0 and .NET Framework 3.5 because .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 3.0 are the prerequisite of .NET Framework 3.5. So the three .NET Frameworks cannot be removed.
    For OS, here is a useful blog that shows what version of .NET Framework is included in what version of OS. See: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/03/14/mailbag-what-version-of-the-net-framework-is-included-in-what-version-of-the-os.aspx

    For instance, if you have Windows XP Home Edition SP3, the MSI-based .NET Framework 1.1 + SP1 is shipped with it but not as truly integrated OS components. If you don't have any application based on .NET Framework 1.1, you can remove it.

    For more information of .NET Framework 3.5, see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/w0x726c2.aspx

    Thanks

  • Thanks for your reply. 

    Actually I need separate as many of my customers already have upto 3.0 so with new version i need only 3.5 sp1 this will save CD space.

    windows 2000 server need only .netframework 2.0.

    So am more interested if i could find separate setup for 2.0,3.0,3.5 so I can use as per my requirement.

    Thanks.

  • I think this post is close to what I need to know when I read your answer to the other poster. I have .net 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 SP1 on my list of programs on Windows XP Home.  So I need to keep all of them on my computer for 3.5 to work? 

    What exactly does the program do?  The updates are getting there automatically and I'm not really sure what Microsoft.Net Framework is for.

    "The Microsoft .NET Framework is a software framework that can be installed on computers running Microsoft Windows operating systems . It includes a large library of coded solutions to prevent common programming problems and a virtual machine that manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework . The .NET Framework is a key Microsoft offering and is intended to be used by most new applications created for the Windows platform."

    For .Net 3.5 to work you need the other frameworks.
