I’ve posted an updated version of the .NET Framework cleanup tool that now contains an option to remove the .NET Framework 3.5 (in addition to 1.0, 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0). I also added some additional information to be removed when uninstalling the .NET Framework 1.1 (thanks to this comment on one of my other blog posts).
You can use the following links to find more information about the .NET Framework cleanup tool and download it if you need it on your system:
- Information about using the cleanup tool – http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/05/30/611355.aspx
- Link to the cleanup tool – http://astebner.sts.winisp.net/Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip
- Alternate link to the cleanup tool in case the first link does not work – http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip
Note – at the time that I am writing this blog post, the .NET Framework 3.5 is still only a beta, so currently the cleanup tool is only able to remove the beta 1 and beta 2 versions of the .NET Framework 3.5. I will update the tool in the future when future builds of the .NET Framework 3.5 are released publicly.
<update date=”5/19/2008″> Added an alternate download location for the cleanup tool in case the first site is down. </update>
