can the .NET 4 client profile run 3.5 client profile?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework


What if a person has only .NET 4 client profile installed on a old OS which does not has any other version of .NET installed

Can that computer run my application, mostly designed for .NET 4 client profile but some assemblies had to be .NET 3.5 client profile


Thanks in advance


Edit: I have found something about backwards compatibility http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff602939.aspx 
I need to be sure this works for client profile installations, too

Why does .NET Framework 4 client profile slow down boot time network creation?

I've been running a Windows XP sp3 KVM virtual machine for a long time now, and some recent update made the initial network startup go from a few seconds at boot time to around 90 seconds. Using Add/Remove program to uninstall recent updates points the finger at .NET Framework 4 client profile. With it installed, if I right click on network and ask for properties right after booting, there is a 90 second delay before the network dialog with the list of network interfaces finally appears. In addition, the network drive I have automounted at login is not accessible for the same 90 seconds. As an experiment, I tried going into the device manager and deleting the network interface, and if I reboot after that it takes 90 seconds for the new hardware wizard to appear. All these 90 second delays vanish if I remove this .NET update. The network comes up as soon as the system boots.

Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile

I changed from Vista to Windows 7.  Every time I start my computer it says I need to install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0  When I do that, the installation says it's already in my computer. I have looked and what's installed is Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.  What should I do?  Also, my bluetooth has stopped working. Is this why?

Project builds for .NET 4.0 but not 4.0 Client Profile

Hi, I'm converting some class library projects from .NET 2.0 to 4.0. I've gone through the wizard to get the solution and projects into Visual Studio 2010 and it builds. When I open the project properties for any of my class library projects and set the target framework to .NET 4.0 it still builds, but if I change it to .NET 4.0 Client profile, which is what I want, it doesn't. What is confusing me is that the errors are that a referenced namespace in one of my own class libraries doesn't exist. E.G. I have a class library named IGLT.SMO.Data. Its default namespace is IGLT.SMONET.Data with several classes in that namespace. A second class library named Common references IGLT.SMO.Data and uses it throughout. When I change Common to target .NET 4.0 Client Profile I get errors like "The type or namespace 'SMONET' does not exist in the namespace 'IGLT' (are you missing an assembly reference?)".   I'm not missing a reference or it wouldn't build for any framework. What am I missing?

User Profile Service Synchronization Connection: Client Timout

Cannot deploy .net framework 4.0. client profile via wsus


I would like to deploy .NET framework 4.0. client profile via wsus.

I failed to import .NET framework 4.0. via Windows Update.

Does anybody try to deploy it via WSUS? Is it possible?

HTTP, .NET 4 and the Client Profile


We're about to release our new WPF application that's based on the .NET 4 framework. I'm trying to see if we can use the client profile rather than the full framework since installing the latter has turned out to take a loooong time (>15-20 minutes post-download) on our users' computers.

With that said, I've determined that our WPF application has two dependencies that don't exist in the client profile:

  • JavaScriptSerializer
  • HttpUtility (specifically the UrlEncode() method)
Are there any alternatives to these classes in the client profile that I could use instead?

Can I use managed client OM to retrieve user profile?

I don't think managed client object model can be used to get user profile. I don't see anything similar to Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfile namespace...

Error while using Silverlight class library in .NET 4 Client Profile project


Failed to figure out where to post this problem.

I have two projects in solution: Silverlight 4 assembly and Console application targeted .NET 4 Client Profile. There's an interface in Silverlight assembly which has a return value typed IEnumerable<IPEndPoint>. In console application I'm trying to implement this interface. I have the following error compiling console application project: 'PeerToPeerNameResolver' does not implement interface member 'INameResolver.Resolve(string)'. 'PeerToPeerNameResolver.Resolve(string)' cannot implement 'INameResolver.Resolve(string)' because it does not have the matching return type of 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<System.Net.IPEndPoint>'

I've never defined my own class IPEndPoint, nor IEnumerable<T> interface. How can I get rid of this error? Method code is 

		public IEnumerable<IPEndPoint> Resolve(string name)
var peername = new PeerName(name, PeerNameType.Unsecured);

.NET 4 Client Profile doesn't instal properly


I've tried to instal the following within Windows Update - Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows 7 x64-based Systems (KB982670).  Each time the instal fails, with no explanation why.  However, I have an application on my PC which seems to recognise the presence of .NET 4 and, as a consequence, stalls.  My Registry shows 3.5 SP1 as being installed, but not 4.  Control Panel doesn't show .NET 4.  Any ideas on how I can clean up, or why the v4 instal doesn't complete?

I have the 1st of the two programs (above), and wondered if I should have it (the, "Client Profile" version); or instead, should uninstall it, and download the 2nd (above), the one (without, the words "Client Profile")?  OR, are they essentially the same?  I'm an intermediate computer user but don't have alot of experience with deciphering between the types of .NET Frameworks (like the 2 above).  Anyone familiar with this area, please advise.  (P.S.:  I never actually went to the download center and downloaded the (1st) item (above).  I just noticed it is installed (under, installed programs).

Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Client Profile installation error: (0x800B010B), "Generic trust failure "


I'm currently using a window 7 64 bit operating system fujitsu laptop and I've been trying to install a update: 'Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems (KB2160841)'. However, upon many tries of installing the update, i still couldn't get it install. The error details for the update is Code 66A.

Therefore, after searching on Windows forum for solution for that error, i've tried to repair the Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Client Profile by following these steps:

A. Click on Start and click on Control panel.

B. Go to Program and Features.

C. Scroll down to Microsoft.Net Framework 4 Client Profile, right click it.

D. It will give you a choice of Uninstall/Change, click it.

E. Then, it will give a choice to repair.

After following the above steps, the repair did not succeed because: Generic trust failure.

Installer guides users to the .NET 4.0 Client profile installer instead of the full .NET Installer



Our Windows 7 application is using the standard VS 2010 setup project and our deployment requires the full .NET 4.0 installation NOT the .NET client profile. The launch conditions of our setup specifes the .NET Framework 4, (not the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile). However on target systems that need .NET installed as a prequisite; the user is guided to the NET Framework 4 Client Profile rather than full download. The result is frustrating since most users don't know the difference so they install the client profile; reattempt the installation which still fails because the full .NET Framework never got installed.

Is there are workaround for this? Additionally is there any plan to have .NET 4 presinstalled on Windows 7 or devliverd by Windows Update?

Thanks in advance

On further inspection this occurs only when the installation is started from the msi installer. Setup.exe is OK. However any assistance on when full .NET 4 will be installed on Win 7 or pushed by the Windows update service would be appreciated

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.
