.NET Framework versions on Windows server 2016 Standard RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows server 2016 Standard.

    In Add roles and features wizard it shows .NET framework 4.6 and ASP.NET 4.6 installed.

    But in registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\microsoft\NET Framework Setup it shows  .net framework 4.0 is installed.

    In Control panel : View installed updates it does not show .NET Framework 4.6

    If .NET Framework is not installed why is it showing installed in roles and features  for WEB Server .

    Is .NET Framework 4.6 installed  or NOT ?  What version of .NET Framework comes by default in Windows server 2016 standard ?

    If I install NET Framework now do I need to uninstall .NET Framework 4.0 

    Thanks !

  • Hi Jhingle,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    • Windows Server 2016 (all editions) includes the .NET Framework 4.6.2 as an OS component, and it is installed by default except in the Server Core configuration.  It also includes the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 as an OS component that is not installed by default.  The .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 can be added or removed via the Server Manager.

    The .net 4.6.2 as a component in your server so that don’t show in control panel, you can check this Docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/migration-guide/how-to-determine-which-versions-are-installed#to-find-net-framework-versions-by-viewing-the-registry-net-framework-45-and-later to determine what version of .net on your server is.

    And you don’t need to uninstall any version .net from your server, because .net 4.0 and later used same CLR version (4.0) and it is backward compatibility.

    Hope my answer would help you.

    Sincerely

    May
