Hi Dave,

Any machine that is going to run a .NET application must have the .NET
Framework installed on it first. Windows Server 2003 includes the .NET
Framework but you must download an install it manually for every other
version of Windows. The only version of Windows that *does not* support .NET
applications is Windows 95.

You can get the .NET Framework using Windows Update or by going to
http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframewo...t/default.aspx

None of the OSs have it preinstalled. People using XP and windowsupdate
however will probably have it as well as people with XP sp1
did other users that need to use my C# application need to install the ..net framework???

Yes, your program won't run if the framework isn't installed.
Thanks.

He needs to install it. The only OS so far with the framework included
is Win 2003 Server. But the framework has been available from Windows
Update for quite some time and was also included on the WinXP SP1 CD
so there are other ways it may have been installed already.

The framework doesn't supported on Win95.

You mean of course from the ones in the post.

No Windows version before NT4x and W98 will support the Net.

Just to be sure that nobody gets a strange idea who reads this thread that
he can use Windows 3.11 or NT3.5.

Yep, you're right. But I think anyone running Windows 3.11 (or earlier) or
NT3.5 isn't worrying about .NET ;-)
