.NET 4.0 Client Profile question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone, simple questions. Does the .NET 4.0 Client profile overwrite any dlls from previous versions of .NET Framework installs?

    For example, .NET 3.0 has overwritten some 2.0 components in our past. If I deploy .NET 4.0 Client profile to all Config Mgr 2012 clients in production, specifically IIS web servers, am I going to face an issue? .NET 4.0 CP is required for SCCM 2012 clients.

    I was referred here after posting in the System Center Configuration Manager 2012 TechNet forum. I'm not a developer, but a sys admin, please forgive my limited understanding of .NET Framework.

    Thanks,

  • No.

    .NET Framework 4.0 is a separate, complete, framework. It coexists, side by side, with other full frameworks.

    Your example from .NET 2.0, 3.0 is explained by the fact that 3.0 is NOT a full framework. It is an extension of 2.0 which includes updates to some 2.0 files. Same is true of 3.5.

    If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
