.net 3.5 on Windows 7

Wed Aug 29, 2012 1:04 pm

I've been hunting all over and I'm trying to figure out. Does Windows 7 have .net 3.5 bundled with it? Thanks.

I don't believe it comes with, but it's downloadable from Microsoft. Most consumer version of windows don't have IIS installed either.

Yes.

"For Windows 7, .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1 is shipped with it as one of OS component.
For .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1, it includes .NET 2.0 with SP2 and .NET 3.0 with SP2 as prerequisite.
This means, you have the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 plus a few post 3.5 SP1 bug fixes on Windows 7. They are OS components. .NET 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 can be added or removed via the Programs and Features control panel.
Thus, we don't need to manually install them."

According to this post:
Windows 7 includes the .NET Framework 3.5.1 as an OS component. This means you will get the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 plus a few post 3.5 SP1 bug fixes.

And the screenshot there also shows what version of Windows has what .NET installed by default.

Easiest way is to look:

Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off

You'll find it in the list there.
