I'm interested in checking out this XNA game design program by microsoft, but before I can install it I need Visual C# 2005 Express Edition. But before that I need to uninstall the .NET Framework 2.0. To be honest I don't really know much about this subject. By uninstalling the framework will I be causeing myself any problems? And what does the framework really do?
Any feedback would be great.

If you uninstall.net you may experience problems with some internet services such as MSN Messenger.

Will the Visual C# 2005 Express Edition not provide something similar to the .net framework?

So is my undertanding correct or am I completely wrong. The .NET Framework is just something that supports websites etc. for viewing. And the visual c++, c# etc are programs that allow you to build them?

.Net is a p;rogramming language. Programs that are written in .net require the framework installed in order to be able to run. Therefore I would not uninstall it.

If you download and install Visual C# Express and it already finds .net framework 2 installed it should ignore it. Where did you find that you have to uninstall it first? I already had it installed when I put Visual C# on. It went through without any problem. It may also install a version of SQL Server as well.

I first learned that I had to uninstall it when downloading the Visual C# Express Edition.

[quote]Before you get started, make sure to uninstall all pre-release (beta) Express software from your computer.
You must uninstall all Visual Studio 2005 and Express betas before installing a final release of any Visual Studio 2005 Edition, including an Express Edition. You must also uninstall the beta version of the .NET Framework 2.0 before installing any Express Edition final release. [/quote]
