Microsoft .NET includes runtime libraries, directX components and windows associated files used to develop and run those desktop or web applications that has been developed with dotNET. These library files are basically necessary to run several components e.g. Visual basic, Microsoft Office, DirectX and several other programs. Most of the programs were developed with .ASP and .NET programming methods. Thats why, those programs will require runtime library files because this package includes all of required packages.
The previous way of getting latest files for development and software installation is through windows update. However, now you can download and install .NET framework latest version through proper setup. The most of files included in .NET files suite are multimedia library files. Those files were used to run system components in proper channel without having difficulties in software installation. Most of high and medium class games required .NET executable library files. The files support from previous versions of dotNET framework will continue supporting new apps and development.
Key Features of .NET Framework:
It has a wide collection of runtime library files, programming coding / encodings, source code libraries, virtual machine administration and handling based utilities as well. A powerful combination of multimedia files will also boost up loading speed of Office, Visual Basic, C++, DirectX and other third party applications. We know hundred and thousands of apps were build with Microsoft Visual basic / Visual studio so it means we need dotNET framework to interact with such programs.
The most important thing is that .NET framework has wide collection of audio and video driver files which may required by many programs, programming languages, hardware components, games and other utilities. DirectX software package also uses similar runtime executable library files but DX covers specific area of multimedia components.
However, .NET framework is the mainstream runtime package for web and software developers. It's currently covers ASP.NET, ADO.NET and other web components. This latest version includes upgrades and improvements in Common Language Runtime (CLR), Framework Class Library (FCL) Common Language Specification (CLS), Common Type System (CTS) and Base Class Library (BCL) sections.
