Where's the .NET framework ?

Posted Mon, Apr 14 2008 13:08 by bill

In putting together some virtual machines for testing on hyper-v, I was amazed and disappointed to find that Microsoft is NOT pushing out the .NET framework any more.  On Windows XP, windows update offers only .NET 1.1 and 2.0.  Vista includes 3.0.  So why is it that Microsoft will push out 2.0, but not 3.0 or 3.5 ?  Why isn't 3.0 and 3.5 being offered to XP, and why isn't 3.5 being offered to Vista ?

You can get the 3.5 Net Framework by installing one of the free 2008 Visual Studio Express Editions.
