Download Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.5.2 Offline Installer
.NET is an integral part of many applications running on Windows. The .NET Framework provides common functionality to the running applications. If an application has been developed and designed to use .NET Framework, the app will not run without first installing the framework.
The .NET Framework is a technology that supports building and running the next generation of applications and XML Web services. The .NET Framework is designed to fulfill the following objectives:
o To provide a consistent object-oriented programming environment whether object code is stored and executed locally, executed locally but Internet-distributed, or executed remotely.
o To provide a code-execution environment that minimizes software deployment and versioning conflicts.
o To provide a code-execution environment that promotes safe execution of code, including code created by an unknown or semi-trusted third party.
o To provide a code-execution environment that eliminates the performance problems of scripted or interpreted environments.
o To make the developer experience consistent across widely varying types of applications, such as Windows-based applications and Web-based applications.
o To build all communication on industry standards to ensure that code based on the .NET Framework can integrate with any other code.
