There are a lot of things that require the .NET framework or at least one of it's flavors. The ATI/AMD graphics drivers are one example. They require .NET 2.0 for the Catalyst Control Center to run. You used to be able to get away without installing the CCC, but now they've added the Catalyst Install manager which also requires .NET.

Not sure how it is on XP or Vista but on Win 7 SP1 it's like this(it does not install .NET since it is installed by default on Win 7):




Yes, exactly. I said that W7 has .NET embedded and XP does not unless you have the Media Center Edition which only has 1.1 so you have to install at least 2.0.

Are there no security problems associated with older versions of .Net?

Yes(not just for older versions), that is why they get security updates through Windows Update.

@ Avastfan1
I think you are now becoming to understand why I think the .net framework is the biggest pain in the rear, it is a bloody nightmare to keep up to date, many updates fail and vulnerabilities can still exist in older versions.

Even when updated programs that require old versions can still be potentially exploited, which is why for years I had only one program that required it. Now I have two programs that require it an old version and a newer version; this is hassle to keep up to date and if these two programs I didn't consider essential I would get rid of .net on XP.

@ Avastfan1 my XP is always update on MS security patch through windows update, you have to understand not very many people have the same .NET Framework depends on what software program to required a .NET Framework to be install.

When you buy a software sometime a software need a new .NET Framework version the software will automatically check them during the installation, and sometime they may have a new version .NET Framework I don't have on my XP and it will automatically installed them from the DVD the software you buy off the shelf. And when you running windows update MS will automatically check the version of the new .NET Framework and will automatically include a new patch update through MS, and this why not everybody have all the .NET Framework depends on what software program required to install. Do you understand ???

Thank you for the responses.

@DavidR: I hear you brother. Let us not forget it IS Micro$oft software.  ;)

@Speedy: Loud and clear. It is difficult to know which programmes need which version.
