Importance of .Net framework for Office365

See in installation notes for proplus that version 3.5 .Net Framework required for regular office applications and 4.5 clr needed for Skype for Business.

These don't come with Windows 10 natively . Using a BYOD model just wondering what the importance of .Net is and what errors it will generate if the correct version isn't used?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No error. You just cannot install it and you will be prompted / required to install .Net framework as the click to run installer will check the requirements before it will install the app.

If it's any version prior to 3.5 or below will the same message occur that it won't install?

Also if 3.5 is installed will Skype for business work?
Says .Net 4.5 clr required
Jackie ManIT ManagerCommented:
If your Skype for business is installed on a standalone (not domain joint) computer, you can skip .Net 3.5.

.Net 3.5 is needed for directory sync on single sign-on (SSO) for Skype for business.

The best practice is to install .Net 3.5 for domain joint computer if the AD is not the latest version.
