Thread: How big is the .NET framework

    How big is the .NET framework


    My latest project involves the upgrading of an old legacy VB 3.0 to either
    VB 6 or VB.NET.

    We already have VB 6 runtime components distributed to users to so I'm hesitant
    to force the installation the .NET framework simply for this one application.
    There are no plans to upgrade any of the VB6 apps at this time.

    Does anyone know how big the .NET framework is and has anyone had problems
    installing it on older Win95 machines?

    Thanks,
    Augie.

    The .NET Framework redistributable is a 20MB download and it will not
    install on Windows 95.

    To ensure adequate performance, the .NET Framework has the following minimum
    and recommended system requirements for client and server applications.

    Operating System Requirements
    The .NET Framework is supported on the following platforms.

    Scenario Operating System
    Client Microsoft® Windows® 98
    Microsoft® Windows® 98 Second Edition

    Microsoft® Windows® Millennium Edition

    Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 Workstation with Service Pack 6.0a or later

    Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 Server with Service Pack 6.0a or later

    Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional

    Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Server

    Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Advanced Server

    Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition

    Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional

    Note On all these systems, Microsoft® Internet Explorer 5.01 or
    later and Microsoft® Windows® Installer 2.0 or later are also required.
    Server Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2.0
    Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Server with Service Pack 2.0

    Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Advanced Server with Service Pack 2.0

    Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional

    You cannot run the Framework in windows 95.
    You need at least windows98

    The .Net framework won't run on Windows 95, however, I found several people
    selling Windows 98SE on Ebay for about $29-$30. You might be able to find
    it for less at a swapmeet.
