.net framework question


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I recently had to reinstall xp home on my laptop and

I have a doubt,

is it better to keep both versions of .net framework installed or just the 2nd? (I'm assuming 3 just adds vista capability)

.NET framework versions are not cumulative, they are stand-alone. Most applications will have no problem with this and will use the installed version if it is compatible, but some applications will be written to specific versions of the framework, and you must have that version installed to use the application. I find it best practice to have all versions installed on machines, that way the application can always attempt to use the framework version it was written for.
