Confusion about .net framework in general RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to install MS SQL 2005 Express and Studio on a new Sony Vaio running Vista.  The instructions say I must install .net Framework 2.0 first. I downloaded dotnetfx.exe and believe I installed it but I cannot find any reference to it in my Control panel.  When I look for .net Framework it only shows .Net Framework Version 1.1.  When I attempt to install Version 2.0 by double clicking and installing dotnetfx.exe, it tells me Version 2.0 is already installed.


    Please explain in general terms what the .net framework is or point me to a general explanation.


    Thank you.
