Deselecting .NET framework in Exchange Server windows update?

Hi folks,

I'm running windows server 2008 R2 enterprise for my Exchange Server 2010 SP2. My windows update list of patches shows .NET frameworks 4.5 and it's other updates.

Can I deselect the .NET framework in all exchange server patches to be applied ?

Because my understanding is that exchange server 2010 is running on .NET framework 3.0 therefore it is not necessary to upgrade to .NET Fx higher version.

Any kind of suggestion and comment is appreciated.

Thanks

If you are concerned, you can always install it later if needed...

In addition to "deselecting," so as to avoid accidental installation until needed, "right-click" on it and select "hide update" to prevent it showing up until necessary... (You can always "unhide" it later)

While Exchange isn't using the higher version of netframework, other parts of the OS are doing so.
Therefore you can skip installing a newer version if you wish, but you need to install updates. You will probably find that you will need to install the later version of Netframework at some point.

Ok that does make sense.
So in this case exchange server 2010 SP 3 only requires up to the .NET fx 3.0 only ?
Or 3.5 ?

Cool I'll apply the update and other security patches related to .net 3.5 then.
