Hello.

 

I am trying to update my .Net Framework. I understand WIN7 comes with 3.5 so I downloaded 4.0 and 4.5 to install.

When I click on the exe it starts, as evidenced in my Task Manager, but nothing happens on screen. I have tried the stand alone and web versions, tried in safe mode and tried running as admin. I'm not sure what else to do.

 

Can someone point me in the right direction?

 

My computer specs:

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
 
Intel Core i7 860 Lynnfield 45nm Technology
 
8.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 531MHz (7-7-7-20)
 
Dell Inc. 0T568R (CPU 1)
 
ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series
 
977GB Western Digital WDC WD1001FALS-00J7B0 (RAID) 36 °C
977GB Seagate ST31000528AS (RAID) 31 °C

Where...did these downloads come from?

 

I believe that you can install such using Windows Update, although I prefer to just download direct from Microsoft and install from the desktop.

Thanks for the reply.

 

When I use Windows Updater, it tries to install 1.1 but errors out.

 

I got the downloads from Microsoft:

If you review the directions for installing...you will see that one of the first items is to ensure that all critical updates are current before proceeding.  Are SP1 and all subsequent critical updates installed on your system?

Unless you need 4.x .Net framework, there is no need to install them.

I managed to get current up to 4.0.

 

I don't have anything that needs 4.5 so I'll leave that for when/if I ever need it.

 

TY for the replies!

If the program needs the higher version, it should install the other version.  I found out when trying to install UVerse Realtime for monitoring your connecting when you have VDSL2+, that it will not install properly in 8.1, because the proper .net is not on there.  You have to go through a manual install process, to put the latest version of .net.

 

When you run Windows Update, it should find the latest version and install, if you have it set up for Microsoft Update.  Microsoft is slow at times in moving stuff like .net from older versions to newer, because they leave that up to the programmers to decide that.
