Installing dotNET V2.0 (or not)

Hi you all out there,

Some months ago I installed dotNET Framework Version 1.1. I
Needed that for a program to work. Since a while I keep getting
reminders from the Windows update site, there's an upgrade/update
to Version 2.0 waiting for me.
As far as I understand, this dotNET Framework- 'thing' is for
better performance of your (IE)-browser and for developers to
write programs.
In the meanwhile, I'm using Mozilla Firefox for internetbrouwsing
and I am definitely not a developer. So, after finally
downloading and installing Version 2.0 there are some
difficulties I encountered. F.i. it does not show in the Start
=.Config =System (what does show is the V1.1) and a
cleaningprogram is cleaning some 10 obsolete entries concerning
dotASP but they are still coming back. Again and again......
I removed this V2.0 and tried a re-install but that didn't do the
trick. I finally removed it.
My question is, Do I really need to install this 2.0- version for
my Firefox browser???? The earlier program I mentioned only needs
the V1.1 and is still performing well.

Many thanks in advance,

Angelique

Hi,

i don't think you need any of the .Net framework for firefox to work.
however, some other software might. but if they do, you will be notified
during the installation. if you are not a developer, you probably only
require the runtime version of the .NET framework. windows update is
notifying you because version 2.0 is the new version of the .NET framework.

Ekhorutomwen hi,

Thanks for your reply. I can live with what you are saying.
I already removed it from my machine and everything is still
working well.

Thanks again.
