How do I uninstall .net 4.7.2 from Windows 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to uninstall .Net 4.7.2 from Windows Server 2012 R2.  I do not know how it got to this level.  I did not install it.  There is no KB UPDATE that installed it. I searched the list for all 4.7 KB's.   I am including screen shots from the registry and from Programs and features.   I am currently at version 4.5.1.

  • Buen día,

    estos están instalados como actualizaciones y cada uno es por Kb, entonces desde la opción de panel de control desinstalar programas y seleccionar ver actualizaciones instaladas y  se debe buscar la actualización según la versión.
