.NET Framework setup verification tool, cleanup tool and detection sample code now support .NET Framework 4.6.2


I have posted updated versions of the .NET Framework setup verification tool, the .NET Framework cleanup tool, and the sample code to detect .NET Framework install states that support detecting, verifying, and cleaning up the .NET Framework 4.6.2. You can find more information about how to download and use these tools at the following locations:

As always, if you run into any issues or have any feedback about these tools or samples, please let me know by posting a comment on one of my blog posts.

    Does .Net framework 4.6.2 is supported in Windows Small Business Server 2011 ( SBS 2011 ) ?

    1. Hi Senthilvel R – I did some web searches and it doesn’t appear that the .NET Framework 4.6.1 or 4.6.2 are supported on SBS 2011. I’m not positive that is the official answer though, so I’d recommend posting a question on the .NET Framework setup forum at https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/home?forum=netfxsetup to see if someone there can confirm that.

    Hello,

    I have some trouble with .NET Framework, that is required to use some features. I tried to uninstall it, and then instal it again, but I keep getting the “.NET framework 4.6.2 is already installed” error (not the exact same text but I’m not english native). Though it’s not installed if I take a look to my Programs & Features pannel. I don’t know what to do, find nothing working on the internet, and as you seem to work a lot on .NET framework, I wonder if maybe you had a solution ?

    Thanks

    1. Hi MOUROT B – What version of Windows is on your PC? If it is the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, then the .NET Framework 4.6.2 is installed as an OS component, there isn’t a way to remove it, and it won’t appear in the list of installed applications in the Programs and Features control panel.

      What exact trouble are you having with the .NET Framework that led you to try to re-install the .NET Framework 4.6.2 in the first place?

        Greeting i have the same problem as well i have win 8.1 the reason i was doing this is because when netframework 4.6.2 was installing i accidentally task killed it when trying to close another application.

Then I tried to use your program in order to uninstall Netframe work as a whole but still it says that its on my computer please help me. Thank you

        1. Hi Jakie – I’m not sure what is being left behind on your PC that makes the .NET Framework 4.6.2 installer think that it is already installed. Can you please use the tool described at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/11/21/6458047.aspx to collect all of your setup log files, upload the file named %temp%\vslogs.cab that this tool will create to a file server (such as http://onedrive.live.com), and then reply back here and provide a link that I can use to download your log files and take a closer look?

    In Win7Pro SP1 I can’t install .Net2 to 3.5 and some applications seems to need one or another. Don’t know what to do, it’s causing various trouble with games, applications and so on. The verification tool shows no problem with .Net from 4 to 4.6.2. and cleanup tool is not listing 2.0 to 3.5. Any advice?

    1. Hi Rafa – Windows 7 includes the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 as OS components, and there is no way to remove them. What exact error messages have you been seeing in your games and applications?

      Also, can you please upload the log file created by the .NET Framework setup verification tool to a file server (such as http://onedrive.live.com) and reply back here to post a link so I can download it and take a closer look?
