    Winwdows embedded standard 7, 3.5 SP1? Sure would like to find the download for that one….. cause the normal does not work, and you cannot add it as a feature.

    Is it possible to install .net framework 4.6.1 on Windows Embedded 8.1 industry pro?
    We tried installing it but it does not showup in the control panel or windows features.
