What the heck! They just released Version 2.0 last year, now we have another version upon us. How many of them do they expect us to have on our systems? I already have 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Plus I'm just about learning and getting used to the nuances of ver 2.0 for use in developing apps, and now I'll have to learn a new one all over again.

Ok, please explain (to the newb), why I need it.....:o
I don't know why I need one except that I had to download the 2.0 with C4 demo. I have two older versions too, probably came with some other games, I don't know. (Sorry doesn't explain anything, Bex) :o

Yes, thanks Phil, it does.
So, I won't have to do any of that fancy schmancy stuff you all do with uninstalling the old one, and installing the new one...I just have to download it? Or can I just do a Windows Update, and it's included....

I want to point out that this is a PRE-RELEASE....NOT the final version!
It is NOT available at Windows-Update yet ............to be correct Phil :)
There are a few things to regard:
Note: This is a pre-RTM release. Therefore, do not install these builds on machines you depend on. If you have a previous version of Avalon ("Windows Presentation Foundation"), Indigo ("Windows Communication Foundation"), or pre-released versions of .NET Framework 2.0 installed you must read THIS before download.
THIS can be seen here:
Reading this thread again convinces me that Iíve had a good principle so far: if it is working donít touch it. Since I am not a techie person Iím sticking to this.
Iím not downloading or upgrading things just because they are there and available, unless I know for sure I need them now. Microsoft net.framework 2.0 came with C4 demo and that is why I have it now. There was a reason for it obviously. Iíve been living quite happily without some of the former versions of framework, and now there is less Ďgarbageí on my lappy (since you canít get rid of them).
I had a thorough cleanup of my laptop with the help of a pro. After that is running much faster and smoother. :) :) :)

You think you have it bad? I have those PLUC 1.2 and 1.3, so seems you missed a couple.
I got 1.0 with the standard Win XP installation, I need 1.1 for running Norton Ghost 10, and I use 2.0 to develop apps using the new Visual Studio. Other than that, I didn't feel the need for 1.2 or 1.3, so never bothered with them. But I will need to bother about 3.0, as it seems it will make my apps obsolete.:(
None the less, what can we expect?! It's Microsoft! :D
You just about summed it up man! Exactly my sentiments. ;)
