.net framework versions diffs


B

B L Muzzy

there are now several versions of .net framework; 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.
version 3.5 says it is a "full cumulative update that contains many new
features building incrementally upon .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 3.5" it
mentions nothing of ver 1.0 & 1.1.

my questions are should I upgrade all clients & servers to 3.5?

do i need all lower versions simultaneously installed or do I remove them,
then install 3.5?

I notice that installing 2.0 & 3.0 did not remove previous versions
automatically.

thanks,
Bob

Hi Bob,

you should keep the .NET framework versions that you have applications that
are using. You also only need to install .NET 3.5 if you have an application
tha requires it.

3.0 and 3.5 are more of an extension of 2.0 as the quote mentions. In
practice this means 3.0 requires 2.0 to be installed and 3.5 requires 3.0.
If you try to uninstall 2.0 it will break 3.0 and 3.5 (if installed).

I would recommend that you do not uninstall any version as they are
installed and work side by side.

Best regards,
Andreas
