I know that having multiple versions of Java installed is discouraged. Is the same true for .NET Framework?

Namaste, Peace & Love,

No...in fact, many users don't need any version installed.

NET 2.0 is part of every system sold as MCE...any other version of MS.NET must be called for by a given application.

Some drivers...some games...some other apps...all may require a given version, with none requiring anything earlier than 2.0. Each of these will tell the user...what version of MS.NET it needs/requires. Various MS suites/apps will install the needed version pertaining to its functioning properly (Visual Basic family, for examplle) while MS Office does not necessarily go that route. The install directions for some apps will indicate what version is needed...I don't game, but i suspect that games also do that.

I don't have a version installed on one of my systems...I have 3.5 SP1 and 4 installed on the other (I only need one but I installed the other just as a trial and failed to remove it).

If the game/program/drivers kicks out a popup saying that a given version is needed, then install that version.

Okay, thank you! I've got 2.0, 3.5 and 4.0. :)
