.Net framework

Evening all, at last,
Whilst doing a spring clean on my PC I found, in add/remove,
M/S .Net Framework 1.1 (and a hotfix)
M/S .Net Framework 2
and M/s .Net Framework 3

Do I need all of these or can I delete the first two? Any help appreciated.

Im a little surprised you have version 3 Bluto,this is aimed at software developers.

I would not remove them due to the fact some software needs the earlier versions to run.Not all software is compatible with NetFramework 2.0 so 1.1 is needed.

Safer to keep them all,

Hi Skidzy I got version 3 with normal microsoft downloads,As it was from them I automatically downloaded it.

So it has downloaded,and thats on my Vista machine,will check the others tomorrow,thankyou.
Regarding of them all...keep them.

I`m the same as buteman, Normal download from M/S so I installed it. Probably a careless thing to do but it`s done. I`ll take the advice and leave them. They appear not to take up any space, so it won`t matter.
Thanks for the input guys, appreciated.

I can only assume that some newer software requires Netframework 3.0 now,i havnt researched this,but did have a readup a while back.
I guess MS would not have sent it out unless needed.

It come automatically with Vista.

anskyber,cheers for the confirmation regarding Vista.

I also have iNETFramework 2.0 and the earlier versions, plus a patch, on my system.

Presumably there is a reason for it.
