Yes, but then again, it's extremely advisable to have .NET Framework 3 installed.

Didn't Rick make it so that it would detect if you had the right framework though?

What operating system are you using that doesn't already have the 2.0 .NET Framework installed?

I'm pretty sure XP includes .NET 1.1, but not 2.0.

Alexandrina: The 100 MB thing is the redistributable package and is not intended for average consumers. I think Windows Update has a smaller version of .NET in the optional section. If not, go here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... laylang=en. It's a smaller package that only downloads what you need.

XP by default doesn't have any .NET installed.

Sure, but who uses that?

Seriously, SP2 was pushed through Auto Update a long time ago.

Wait I don't understand what your hitting at BB. SP2 for XP also does not have .NET Framework. If it did I would not be installing .NET Framework 1.1 and 2.0 on College computers with XP SP2.

My statement of "XP" includes SP2 and SP3. They don't auto-install any .NET on any version of XP.
