Install of both .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile and .NET Framework 3.5
Posted on 2013-06-12
Today I installed some software that needed .NET Framework 3.5. So before installing .NET Framework 3.5, I uninstalled .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile, which I probably installed for something I'm no longer using. I thought it might cause problems for me if both were installed.
Well, now I want to install a different program that requires .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile!
Can both .NET Framework 3.5 and .NET Framework 4.0 Client both be installed and work correctly, ie. will the programs that need one or the other find the correct one and use it?
And by the way, why is the newer version called "Client"? Is it just a name change? It's really just a newer version of the same thing, isn't it?
