Microsoft .NET Framework is developed by Microsoft to enable create, manipulation and launch of Microsoft applications that require Microsoft .NET Framework in order to execute properly. Some of such apps would not even launch if the proper version of Microsoft .NET Framework is missing or not installed properly on Windows.
Windows 7 often needs to install the dot NET framework when you try to install some software which is developed using this framework, like Voralent Antelope. You should try to install the latest version of the .NET framework. Windows 10 often updates to make sure all components remain up to date. That is why you might not need to install this framework manually.
Microsoft .NET Framework is a fully packed package for developers and users who need it to install and launch Microsoft applications that require Microsoft .NET Framework. It contains all required libraries, classes, templates, and code stuff that is mainly aimed at Microsoft app developers.
Microsoft .NET Framework help users save time by using a pre-made framework rather than reinventing the wheel from the scratch. This package comes with Framework Class Library, and Runtime files such as Common Language Runtime and ASP.NET as well.
.NET Framework might take some time to install due to its complex architecture. So you might need to show some patience and wait for the install process to complete.
If you encounter an error during installation which prevents to proceed to install, try the following methods:
- Disable antivirus software temporarily.
- Restart computer.
- Try to download again a fresh copy
- Download an online installer rather than an offline installer of the .NET framework.
You will need to restart/reboot your computer after completing the installation. This reboot will ensure all components are installed correctly and properly functioning.
