"Turn off" .NET 4.5 on Windows 8? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the turn on turn off Windows Features, what does unchecking the .NET 4.5 box actually do? On our machines, unchecking this box doesn't seem to do anything at all.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for your posting.

    As far as I know that after you turn off .NET 4.5 Windows Features  by unchecking  the .NET 4.5 box,  some .NET 4.5  features, such as ASP.NET and WCF service, are not  available. See the screenshot below for the detailed information:

    But you can’t uninstall .NET 4.5 by unchecking the .NET 4.5 folders. In other words, you can’t uninstall .NET 4.5 by simply turning off .NET 4.5 Windows Features.

    Hope these help.
