I have Windows XP Home Edition, SP2 and IE 6, SP2

I did a search for this but kept getting error messages.

In the custom button on Winowws update I have the below to download. Do I download them all, or can I just do Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0: x86 (KB928416)?

Version 3.0 enhances version 2.0 with new technologies for building applications with visually compelling user experiences, seamless communication across technology boundaries, and the ability to support a wide range of business processes.

Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1

I am not even sure if I need the Framework, as do not understand what it does. :whistling:

NET. Framework is an environment designed by Microsoft to be used in place of other programming languages. Some few applications do make use of the framework and it is required for them to function in XP. So far I have not discovered the need. I am not planning to develop any programs myself, and have found alternatives for those applications which want the .NET installed. It is possible that your requirements may differ, but I don't think that it is required for the ordinary home user.

.net framework is needed for some programs to work, but not all of them, and if they need it they will tell you to install it. Anyway if you want ot install it, install both 2.0 and 1.1 coz they are not compatible. Don't install 3.0 because it's just a beta version.

Thank you. I appreciate your feedback. I will install 2.0 and 1.1. But I do not understand when you said they are not compatible. Does that mean they are each different, and will not conflict with each other?
