some said that .NET app can run on any program where rutime exists. What is
"runtime" in this sense?
will I have to install runtime or .net framework or .NET support on an xp
machine for a .NET app to work?

thanks

Yes, you will have to have the .net framework installed on any PC that wants
to run a .Net app. You are not guaranteed a XP machine will have it
installed by default.

Hi Adam,

Thaz a good question. Many people new to .NET often get confused between the
terms "Framework" and "Runtime"?

Let me explain...

Framework: Microsoft .NET Framework is a platform for building, deploying,
and running Web Services and applications.
The .NET Framework consists of three main parts:
1. The common language runtime (CLR)
2. Base class libraries and
3. A componentized version of Active Server Pages called ASP.NET.

So thatz it for Framework.

Runtime : Runtime is nothing but the CLR (which is a part of Framework). The
CLR is a set of standard resources that any .NET program can take advantage
of, regardless of programming language. Some of its features are
• Object-oriented programming model (inheritance, polymorphism, exception
handling, garbage collection)
• Security model
• Type system
• All .NET base classes
• Many .NET framework classes
• Development, debugging, and profiling tools
• Execution and code management
and others..

So basically the CLR is a subset of Framework.

Hope this helps.

Need any help, do post a msg back.

Happy Coding
