User Avg


Microsoft .NET Framework is an exceptional software framework for developers and users of XML Web services and applications. Microsoft.Net Framework is often required by programs to allow for the create environment required for runtimes of certain programs. Developers will be turning cartwheels over the multiple features that are included in this software.

Not many people know exactly what Microsoft .NET Framework really is. Most people only find out they need it when trying to run a newly installed app that requires Microsoft .NET Framework to run. Microsoft.NET Framework is a programming framework developed by Microsoft to help app developers create apps more easily. It is a collection of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) and a shared library of code known as the Framework Class Library(FCL) which developers rely on when creating apps. When developing apps, there are bits of code that are common to many apps that most developers may find tiresome to write the code themselves. If the code is available in the Microsoft .NET Framework FCL, the developer does not have to write the code when developing the software. This allows for developers to focus on the code that is unique to their software. However, users of the software will need to install Microsoft .NET Framework to run the software. Microsoft .NET Framework also provides a runtime environment for running apps which enables developers to write their code using any language such as C#, C++, or Visual Basic. Microsoft .NET Framework can be downloaded and updated for free from the Microsoft website.

Service Features
Programmers have access to a variety of several types of codes to use in programming operations of the lower level variety. The members and their codes are included in the Microsoft.Net Framework Class Library. Basic type codes are defined by .Net Framework, instead of by their handlers. This eradicates the frustration of interoperability problems involved in cross-language of programming. Another feature of this program is that multiple versions of applications with common runtime language are able to reside on the same computer without a problem with the ability of side-by-side execution. Almost 100% of applications developed with .Net Framework are compatible with all future versions of the program without modifications required. No matter which platform you choose to use the Class Library (Xbox 360, Windows Phone, or Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10) on, developers are able to target their assemblies. The pressure of object handling as well as releasing and allocating memory for languages programmers is gone with the use of Framework. The CLR covers those specific responsibilities for the application. Application development features are immense in Framework. The program features libraries such as Windows Communication Foundation for use in applications that are service-oriented, and ADO.NET and for data access and web applications, respectively. Finally, there is a feature that assists with language interoperability. The Common Intermediate Language (CIL) is executed by the runtime during the runtime of the common language. This allows routines developed in one language be compatible with other languages. This allows the developer to focus on creating in the language of their choice.

Hardware & System Requirements
Microsoft.NET Framework has a few hardware requirements for installation. The software requires a 1 GHz processor. 512 MB of RAM are needed for the Framework. The minimum disk space needed is 850 MB for a 32-bit and 2 GB for a 64-bit operating system. Microsoft.NET Framework is supported on the following operating systems, Windows XP, Vista SP2, 7 SP1, 8, 8.1, and Windows 10. The only downside, if it is considered one, is the Framework is only compatible with Windows. The upside is that it may cost less because the server is a built-in application in Windows.

Final Say
Microsoft.NET Framework is a must have software for users and developers. An increase in productivity is all but guaranteed with Framework because of the numerous, user-friendly tools that are included in the software. The visually appealing nature of the Framework allows for ease of use when building interfaces in a timely manner without quality suffering. With the option of working in over 20 programming languages, the program is a necessity for any computer programmer. All in all, when searching for software,
