I don't have any version of .NET Framework on my XP SP3 system. Could I install v. 4.0 without having previous versions installed?

In the past I had installed v. 3.5 on another system. It took around 400MB disk space, if I remember correctly. Which one is the smallest version? (I don't have any specific need regarding it's version!)

Thanks in advance.

The need for a particular version of .NET Framework...lies with a given application.  There is no universal version that I am aware...a gvien program or driver will typically indicate whether .NET Framework is a prerequisite for smooth operation...or just install the needed version as part of the installtion package.

Thanks Louis. Say, an application needs v.2.0. Wouldn't it run if I had only v.3.5 installed?

 

EDIT: I think I found the answer I need:

Only if 3.5 includes part/all of 2.0, IMO.
