[help] some stuff about .net

  1. 1. I uninstalled all the .net framework from my computer, but the applications (based on .net) still work. Why is that?

    2. afaik, if I install .net 3.0 I will have .net 2.0. Is this right?

    Thanks for your time!

    Peace out!

    what specific applications?

    v3 vs. v2: all depends upon the installer; some will keep multiple copies, eg Java rte,
    others overlay and leave only the latest copy.
    Why do you care if you're updating the package?

    .NET Info

    this article is a good overview to MS .NET

    notice:
    1. .NET is another Microsoft only product
    2. the portable (ie runs anywhere ) solution is Java
    3. the components for the runtime are in Windows itself

    All the application that I installed previously .net uninstallation.
    For example, I have installed Paint .Net and it works even if i uninstalled .net framework. Now, indeed if i rename the folder of the .net framework (the v2.0.50727 folder) it doesn't work anymore.

    see previous post re MS rte

    If you've been using Windows for any length of time, you should have known that
    moving a directory will easily disturb MS software -- the locations are stored in
    the registry and it was not modified for the new location.

    Curious minds like to play and poke to learn "what happens", but you take risks
    that could be severe

    This one, I hope, is just awe shucks isn't this interesting.

    No, i know my way though registry and stuff, I was just wondering why after uninstalling .Net is still there.
    Anywho, is not that important. Thanks for your time and help!

    Peace out!

    ... because the .NET stuff is the interface and the RTE is elsewhere :)
