Installing .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows Server 2008 (64bit) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm trying to install version 1.1 of the .NET framework on one of our servers. I need it installed so i can install the .NET Framework 1.1 SDK. I understand .NET 1.1 applications can be run on Windows Server 2008 out of the box, however the .NET Framework 1.1 SDK refuses to install before .NET Framework 1.1 is installed.

    When i try to install the .NET Framework 1.1 i get a warning from the Program Compatibility Assistant, saying that there are compatibility issues with IIS. I'd rather not break anything important on this server, so I'm asking here: Is installing the .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows Server 2008 likely to break IIS (or anything else)?

  • Hi,

    Installing .Net 1.1 should work on Windows Server 2008. The compatibility issue seems to be a known issue with .Net 1.1 and installing SP1 should fix it. You may want to look at this article to get more details on this. Hope this helps. Please do let us know if you have further concerns.
