Is .Net framework a prerequisite to install WSE 3.0?

Hi,
Can anybody please clarify if .Net framework needs to be installed prior to WSE 3.0 installation?
If so, which version of .Net framework I should have to communicate with a web service using WSE 3.0 successfully.

Thanks for any help.

Note: WSE 3.0 is not supported if installed on a computer with a version of the .NET Framework earlier than 2.0 or a version of Visual Studio earlier than Visual Studio 2005.

WSE 3.0 Corresponds with .net 2.0. You will in fact need .net 2.0 or greater in order to work with WSE 3.0
