Install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 Multi-Targeting Pack for VS 2012 use RRS feed

  • Question

  • At one point I had entries in my Programs and Features list labeled Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 Multi-Targeting Pack and Microsoft .NET Framework SDK.  I unstalled both of these features for various reasons. I am now trying to get these two items re-installed.

    I downloaded and installed the manual install routine titled dotnetfx45_full_x86_x64.exe.  After I was left with only one entry titled Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.  I did not see a download option for Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 SDK on the following blog

    Ultimately, I need to target the 4.5 Framework in a console app using Visual Studio 2012.

    Although I have the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 entry listed in Programs and Features the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 option is not available as a choice in the Visual Studio 2012 Target framework dropdown.

    I have Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2012.

    Does anyone know how or which download is appropriate so that I can target framework 4.5 in VS 2012?
