.NET Framework??

    WinXP(home) sp3 and all updates except 1.1 sp1 which won't install.

    This leads me to a question.
    Why have the older version of .NET on a system?

    I have 1.1, 1.1 Hotfix (kb928366), 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, on this system. I have an
    dup system, same MB, winxp(home), .etc., etc. and it only has 2.0, 3.0, 3.5
    so not sure why I need to keep 1.1 or for that matter 2.0 or 3.0...
    I've read as much as I can relating to .net but can't find an answer.

    thanks,

    L.

    All you need is .Net Framework Version 3.5 SP1. It has version 2,
    verson 3 and version 3.5.

    <http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe>

    Forget about other downloads as they are not required.

    You only need it if you have an application that requires it. If you
    don't, go ahead and uninstall it. You can re-install it later if you
    find that your application DOES need it.

    There is no need to keep Net. Framework unless you have Apps that
    depend on it. For example, I have a ATI Graphics Card that
    uses a Catalyst Driver and Control Center that is dependent on Net.
    Framework. So, feel free to Uninstall Net from the Add/Remove Program in
    Control Panel.

    Baloney. No .NET Framework version supersedes another. They are all
    separate programs.

    Newer .net framework versions don't replace older ones. If you want to
    run a program that needs an older one, you need it. If you don't, you
    don't need it.

    Now why did you omit the error message you included in your "Me, too!" reply
    to someone else's thread? It was very important:

    > The following updates were not installed:

    > 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and

    But in this thread you tell us that "[.NET Framework] 1.1 sp1...won't
    install." Big difference!

    Wanna bet? And what version of .NET Framework does WinXP depend upon?

    Do I need still need older versions of the .NET Framework on my system after
    installing .NET Framework 3.5 SP1?

    You haven't used .net Net Framework Version 3.5 SP1. It contains
    everything from SP2 onwards.

    Check your facts Mr Pig!

    I stand corrected.

    No, I haden't downloaded it yet. Of course this is a moot point in regards
    to the OP's issue with .Net Framework 1.1.

    Correction:

    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 is a full cumulative update
    that contains many new features building incrementally upon .NET Framework
    2.0, 3.0, 3.5, and includes cumulative servicing updates to the .NET
    Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 3.0 subcomponents.

    It /does not/ replace any version. It adds updates to earlier versions.
