Mscorcfg.msc is installed with the .NET Framework 2.0 Software Development Kit (SDK).

If you have both the .NET Framework 1.1 and 2.0 runtimes, you will have version 1.1 of the configuration tool, but you might not have version 2.0. If you want to manage .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5 by using the configuration tool, you must install the .NET Framework 2.0 SDK. To change configuration settings for a computer that has multiple versions of the .NET Framework, you must make the changes in the matching versions of the configuration tool.
N
The .NET Framework versions 3.0 and 3.5 are built incrementally on the .NET Framework version 2.0. The configuration tool included in the .NET Framework 2.0 SDK is the latest version of the tool. You can use this version to manage code access security policy for the .NET Framework 3.0 and 3.5.

which setting exactly? if you want the one to allow applications to run from a network resource, you don't need to do it anymore with 3.5

Good info... I'm really surprised that configuration tool is not included with the Win7 + .NET 3.5 SDK or Win7 + .NET 4.0 SDK (those links are for the DVD ISO format SDKs; I believe there is also an exe installer for each, but I usually get ISO's if they're available).

Many changes in the security model from 3.5 to 4.0 and there is a new section in the security config that you can select the older method and I personally am a bit confused but If c:\abc\def\app.exe is trusted then c:\abc\def\ and subdirs are trusted (by inheritane) if app.exe calls c:\def\anotherapp.exe it is also trusted but it doesn't inherit downwards
