  • Nobody can answer your question as given because we don't know what programs you have.

    Many modern Windows applications require a .NET Framework. Which version of the .NET Framework a program requires if a function of decisions made by the software designers and developers. To find out what .NET Framework version a particular program requires, you need to contact the publisher of that software and ask them.

    There have been four major versions of the .NET Framework since its debut:



    2.0/3.0/3.5 (3.0 and 3.5 are extensions of 2.0, not full frameworks)


    .NET Framework 1.1 can be installed on XP, Vista and Win 7, so programs that use .NET Framework 1.1 (assuming they meet other OS requirements) can run on all three Windows versions.

    If you are referring to programs that come as part of Windows XP, the answer would be no. Windows XP includes no .NET Frameworks as part of the OS, so logically, no programs installed as part of XP need a .NET Framework.

    For Windows 7, which installs .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 as part of the OS, the answer is still no for requiring .NET Framework 1.1.

    If this does not help you, please rephrase your question.
