dot net and Windows XP

I work in a validated environment. We have validated windows XP. We now
need an application to run on these pc's. I would like to write it in
dotnet. My question is, Is the CLR included in XP or what will I have to
install on the pc?

hello,

Nothing is installed on XP based on the developement framework.
After having created your application, you will have to deploy it. Doinf
this, in your installation project you will have to verify is the .NET
framework is installed on the target system and that it match the framework
version your are working on.
If not, your installation project should handle the process of installing it

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I asked the wrong question. I have read that
the framework is already installed in XP sp2. Is that true? Was it
installed as a part of any other OS or OS sp?

Thanks

Hi Mike,

As serge rightly pointed out, the framework is not installed in XP by
default. Even in SP2 this does not happen.

The basic purpose of Service Pack is to address the security vulnerability /
updating API's. They are actually targetted towards the core OS.

Yes, Framework comes "pre installed" in Windows 2003 OS ONLY (as of now).
Windows 2006 a.k.a Longhorn will also have built in support for framework
when its released.

Need any help, do post a msg back.

Happy Coding
