  • Windows 7 installs .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 through 3.5 SP1 as an integral part of the OS.

    You cannot install .NET Framework 3.5 because you already have it.

    If you have software that says it needs .NET Framework 3.5, but cannot find it, here a couple of possibilities:

    1. Turn on all .NET Framework 3.5 features. Control Panel->Programs and Features->Turn Windows features on and off. Find Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 in the list and turn on all features.

    2. The software that cannot find .NET Frmework 3.5 is not designed for Windows 7 (obsolete). Contact the publisher for a Win 7-compatible version.
