Should we add the .NET Core Runtime to our Windows Server image? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently got a question from one of our developers to install .NET Core on a Windows Server to run a specific application.

    We have the .NET Framework installed but this was insufficient.

    My question is (or maybe a discussion), should we add the .NET Core Runtime to our Windows Server image?

    And some questions around it:

     - If the .NET Framework is installed, do we even need to install .NET Core? 
       Or does .NET Framework contain .NET Core?
     - What is the impact on patching, security, server deployment time, etc.?
     - Is the NuGet feature of .NET Core a risk for our server image security?

  • Hi RalJans,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     - If the .NET Framework is installed, do we even need to install .NET Core? 
       Or does .NET Framework contain .NET Core?

    Yes, you need. But .NET Framework is dependency with .Net Core. Please check this thread: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/38063837/whats-the-difference-between-net-core-net-framework-and-xamarin

     - What is the impact on patching, security, server deployment time, etc.?

         There is no impact.

     - Is the NuGet feature of .NET Core a risk for our server image security?

      No, it isn’t.

    Since our forum is mainly discussing with .NET Framework Setup and Servicing issue. Your issue is related to ASP .NET core issue. So if you have more confused about your project and environment. I recommend you to redirect to the ASP .NET core forum and start a new thread for a more professional supporting.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Sincerely

    May
