  • What you posted isn't Visual Studio. It is the .NET framework which is completely independent of VS. While VS can install a version of .NET (like many other apps) they are unrelated.

    You can have only 1 instance of each CLR installed on a machine. There have been only 3 CLRs starting with 1 then 2 and now we are on 4. 4.7 runs on the v4 CLR. 4.8 will replace 4.7 as CLR upgrades are in place. So if you have 4.8 installed no previous version of 4.x matters as they were replaced with 4.8.

    Therefore, no there are no updates as 4.7 isn't installed anymore. 4.8 will have replaced it. .NET framework updates are applied via normal Windows updates so provided your Windows updates are up to date you are fine.

    Are you having a particular issue such that you believe there is an issue with either .NET or Visual Studio?
