Download Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Web or Standalone Installer
More and more software are coded in C# which in turns requires the user to have Microsoft .NET Framework installed to run the application. The reason why C# is gaining a lot of popularity it has many available libraries and coding a function is 10 times faster and easier if compared to C++. Microsoft Windows Vista and 7 operating system already by default comes with .NET Framework 3 which allows users to run many applications written in C#.
Recently Microsoft has released the final stable version of .NET Framework 4 which contains a lot of new and improved features. We won’t be posting the .NET Framework 4 changelog because it is for application developers and not end users. What everyone including the end user should know is the .NET Framework 4 works side by side with older Framework versions. Applications that are based on earlier versions of the Framework will continue to run on the version targeted by default.
The latest Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is not available in Windows Update yet but you can get it from the link below. There is a web installer where you can download a small setup file and it only downloads the necessary files to install. Another one is the standalone version of the .NET Framework 4 installer which is slightly bigger in size and it can be installed on computers without an active internet connection.
