    .NET version

    I got caught up in the recent bad update for .NET 1.1 -- the SP1 download.
    It's fixed now.
    But now I see the 1.1 is a really old edition. That's a puzzle since I got
    Vista Ultimate 32bit and Office 2007 just recently, when 2.0, 3.0 and now 3.5
    were already out. Some sites say 3.0 ships with Vista yet in Programs and
    Features only 1.1 is listed.
    A reason for asking is that later versions are meant to be better for
    multithreading, and since I use a quad core this may be helpful.
    Should I upgrade?
    What are the pros and cons?

    There is no pros or cons, 1;. 2, 3 or 3.5 are not upgrade from one to
    another, they are different and can co-exist. Each .Net application need one
    of them. An Application which need 1.1 will not run on 3 for example.

    Net 3 is included with vista, but you may need to install another version.
    if an application ask for it.

    Thanks Daniel, does that mean that 3.0 is there but not visible on the
    listing in Programs and Features?

    Re: .NET version

    Please take into account, different applications target different versions
    of the .NET Framework, so you might be required to install older versions to
    support a particular application. Version 3.0 is built into Windows Vista,
    but it is not labled .NET Framework 3.0, version 3.5 was release with the
    RTM version of the Visual Studio 2008 development suite.

    You cannot remove .Net 3 fromVista, so it is not listed, .Net 3 includes
    ..Net 2.
