The free .NET Framework from the world's leading software developer Microsoft enables users to create web, desktop and mobile applications that are designed to function on Windows mobile devices, PCs and servers and it is also included in the Visual Studio package. The applications developed on this framework can reach a worldwide audience of almost a quarter billion customers across the broad range of Windows devices such as desktop, mobile, Surface Hub, Holo Lens and Xbox.
Describing the framework
The .Net Framework is Microsoft's consistent and comprehensive model of programming for creating apps that have secured lines of communication and a capability to simulate a plethora of business related processes. It offers considerable improvement in essentials like CLR (Common Language Runtime) and key BCL (Base Class Library), new mapped memory files and numerical types, a series of exciting innovations in Visual Basic and C# programming languages, and support for Windows 8.1 touch functions, multi-touch functionality, ribbon control, taskbar located extension features, and Surface 2.0 SK. WFC Data Services is a vital component of the Microsoft.NET Framework that facilitates the user's creation of Representational State Transfer (REST) based services and apps that utilize Open Data Protocols (O-Data) to consume and expose data online.
Microsoft.NET Framework interface and user friendliness
Presently there are a total of 5 iterations of the Framework, specifically the .NET Framework 4, the .NET Framework 3.5, backed up by the SP1 (Service Pack 1) which is the accompanying service pack for that iteration. The .NET Framework version 3.0 is backed by the SP2 (Service Pack 2), followed by the 1.1 .NET Framework, in turn supported by the SP1, and the 3.5 .NET Framework which is also backed up by the SP1. It is possible to have the multiple versions of the .NET framework installed and co existing on the same machine, without a loss of functionality. In the majority of cases, you can utilize the most recent iteration of the Framework to run apps that were made with older versions of .NET. The most recent .NET Framework 4 does not automatically push forward with previously installed, older apps. These apps require the specific .NET Framework they were intended to target to be pre installed unless the developer furnishes a file of configuration to reassign the app to function on .NET Framework version 4.
