Hi there.

No the .NET Framework is not installed by default for Windows XP Pro, you must do that manually. You can download the framework from

Not 100% sure but, When you insert the CD, there is an option to install the FrameWork

Hi there.

Hmm, I can't confirm this, but I've never seen any Windows XP CD that offers the .NET framework as an option to install, unless this has changed recently?

With Windows Vista, .NET framework 2.0/3.0 is installed as part of the OS (I think in all versions of Vista, bit I'm not sure). So if someone wants the framework installed as part of the OS, then installing Vista would be the answer.

Cheers :)

A lot of the manufacturers OEM it now.

You may also want to consider an installer that checks for the framework and installs it for you. The installer projects in Visual Studio give you the option to do this (look for bootstrapping).
