    Yes I confirm, in 7850 only .NET Framework 4 comes pre-installed. Older versions of it are available to install in "Turn Windows functions on or off".

    Well, .NET Framework 1.1 is completely removed from Windows 8 7850, versions lower than 4 and greater than 1.1 are available to install from Control Panel, as I said before.

    Thanks for the confirmation. Thus, Windows 8 users do not have waste time installing older versions of .NET Framework.:D

    Call me crazy but doesnt Windows 8 have .net 3.5 and .net 3.5 requires 2.0 & 3.0?

    Windows 7 does not have the option to add remove .net 2.0

    Does anyone know this?

    I assumed that 3.5 was an update of all the previous versions and that everything worked in 3.5 that worked in previous versions?

    An update for the framework always comes with a new visual studio, cause new programming features in visual studio must be supported by the framework in order to run the program.
