FeatureName:WAS-NetFxEnvironment without .NET Framework 3.5 installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, 

    I have upgraded our product to .NET 4.6 and don't want to require to install .NET Framework 3.5 under Windows 2016 OS.

    There is a legacy command  on enabling feature "WAS-NetFxEnvironment" during installation, this command will throw error:

    My question is that can I remove this command about installing feature "WAS-NetFxEnvironment"?  Are there any risks?

    So far our product has been updated to .NET 4.6.

  • Hi Scottq,
    First, WCF mainly discuss and ask questions about general managed code networking topics such as serialization, System.NET, Windows Communication Foundation(WCF), and Web Services.
    If you post the thread to right forum, I think you may get more useful information.
    Besides, as far as I know, this command mainly corresponds to .net environment component in IIS, which is required during the process of hosting the WCF service created by NetTcpBinding, NetMsmqBinding and so on.
