Where do I download the .NET framework?

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Microsoft .NETThe .NET Framework software needs to be installed on a computer before installing programs that have been packaged using the .NET Framework. If you've downloaded a .msi file and are unable to install the program or are getting a .NET Framework error, download the latest .NET Framework from Microsoft.

The latest .NET framework and all past .NET frameworks such as 1.1 (1.1.4322) can be downloaded from Microsoft's .NET downloads.
