Hey Team,

Just after some consult for a task im doing.

I need to upgrade some software on a server, and the instructions from vendor say to:

Register ASP.NET With IIS
 Start the Server Manager.

# Navigate to Manage > Add Roles and Feature > Server Roles

# Navigate to Web Server (IIS) > Web Server > Application Development
Enable ASP.NET 4.6.

My server though is running 2012 R2 and only has ASP.NET 4.5 available as an option (which is already installed with IIS).

Server also already has .netframework 4.6.1 installed.

The vendors documentation doesnt mention .netframework, only 4.6 feature.

Is this the same thing?
