  • What you have to understand is that .NET Framework 3.5 is NOT a complete framework. It is an extension of .NET Framework 2.0.

    So, the support end date for .NET 3.5 SP1 also applies to .NET 2.0 (the base, full, framework that 3.5 extends) as wel as to .NET Framework 3.0, which is also an extension of 2.0.

    Thanks fro the information, but this mean that from .Net 1 to .Net 3.5 and also .Net 3.5 SP1 is out of support now and the support only from .Net 4

  • Hi  Mohamed,

    Yes, Microsoft Declared End Date of 1.0 to 3.5 sp1.

    Check below .Net Framework Life Cycle Detailed Information with Date

  • What Purvi said (or, linked)!

    Because .NET Framework 3.5.1 (which is another name for .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 through 3.5 SP1) is an integral component of both Windows 7 and Windows 8 Consumer Preview:

    "Beginning with .NET 3.5 SP1, the .NET Framework is considered a Component of the Windows OS. Components follow the Support Lifecycle policy of their parent product or platform."

    I don't think you need to worry about end of support for some time to come.
