I am planning on installing .NET Framework from Microsoft's Update website. However, it gives me two versions to install: v1.1 and v2.0:x86.

Which do I install? Do I install both or just the latest version (2.0)?

Thanks for any advice,
mike.

both, first 1, then as second seperate action, two

This is because you need both depending on which package the software developer wrote the program for

think of it as visual basic runtimes 3,4,5,6, etc...

Thanks for the quick response.

Geez, I remember having to install the VB Runtime files after every new Windows install. And didn't one version have both a 16 bit and a 32 bit version. Wow, that brings back memories!

Thanks for the help.
