hello,

what i see here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2018/06/19/released-june-2018-quarterly-exchange-updates/

the cu21 of exchange 2013 need .net framework 4.7.1

other question, if i install .net framework 4.7.1, are .net framework 4.5.1 is removed or not? because our mail antivirus work only with 4.5.1 framework version.

thanks

Hi

It all depends on your version of Scanmail.  If you have version 12.0 then it needs .net framework 4.5.0. If you have 12.5 then it will work with 4.7.1.

Installing 4.7.1 will update 4.5.0 so potentially leave Scanmail unoperational.

This link says Scanmail 12.0 is compatible with CU21 but, as you say, it requires 4.5.0

Do you have support contract for Scanmail? It may be worth speaking with hem if so as it’s ambiguous.

When you install 4.7.1 to will replace 4.5.0.

This version of the .NET Framework runs side-by-side with the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and its earlier versions. However, it performs an in-place update for the .NET Framework 4, 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, and 4.7.

Found a Microsoft document stating that all versions of .net framework 4.5 and beyond are backwards compatible

Yes.  Which is why it says on the TrendMicro site that 12.0 is compatible with CU21
