Download – Full Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Setup

Almost all new applications written for Windows Platform needs the .Net framework. The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 is useful for programmers and developers. The focus of .NET version 4.0 is better support for parallel extensions. The .NET framework helps out these programs to run because of features like interoperability and language independence.

This makes having Microsoft .NET 4.0 framework a must have if you are developing software or even running new applications on your Windows OS.

If we go to the Microsoft Download center, we can install the live installer. This is a small file but to install the complete .Net framework it will require an internet connection to install the almost 50 MB size framework.

If you are using a dial-up or a limited download plan on your internet, this might be a little painful to sit about waiting for the live installer to download the .net 4.0 framework.

One major advantage of downloading the offline installer is you can easily use it to install .NET Framework on multiple computers without the need to download individually from the internet.

The link is absolutely authentic as it is from Microsoft Servers. 🙂

Download: Microsoft .NET 4.0 Offline Installer (works for both 32 bit and 64 bit)

Brian January 2, 2011

Just wondering is it okay to use this one for pirated copies of windows xp. Would it cause any problem or errors ? thanks in advance.

Aditya Kane January 2, 2011

I do not think it should be a problem, that said I do not recommend using pirate copy of any software!

CyberSh0t October 18, 2011

Aditya Kane October 19, 2011

@CyberShot I always recommend buying orginal copy but I do not think it gives the genuine Windows popup warning when .net framework.

iCyberSh0t October 20, 2011

thanks. it does not pop up the genuine thing. problem solved. great work! keep it up!

Ferran January 8, 2011

Hey can I install it on my Windows XP SP2 pirated version?
I would like to install it for other programs and to improve my computer

Aditya Kane April 30, 2011

I do not recommend using Windows XP pirated version. Usually .net framework works fine from Windows vista onwards.

julian May 23, 2011

this sucks. whenever i try to download it, “somehow” it wont let me. it says “connection interrupted”. and i need this framework! any ideas or solutions?

Aditya Kane May 23, 2011

@Julian: Disable Firewalls/Anti-virus programs running on your computer. Do not worry, the links in the post are from Microsoft itself so they are safe! Hope it works out for you! 🙂

unknown May 29, 2011

Hello, is there a bundle available for 4.0. Like there was a 3.5 bundle, which included the previous .net versions also.

Malcolm Dingwall May 15, 2013

I have purchased Nuance pdf converter 8 and tried to install on my Acer Aspire with a Windows 7 platform. The installation failed at file netfx_Core.mzz.
Tracing this back I found that this was a failure to load Net framework 4.0 so I downloaded the installation file from your site and tried to do the installation for that alone. It failed at exactly the same place with the Extracting files popup.
Do you have any suggestions please?

hridoy May 18, 2013

i have downloaded net frame offline 4.5 installer but it is not installing.first extracting, then gathering information but in time of installation it is not working.please help me suggesting the probable solutions.i badly need them.

Malcolm May 21, 2013

I over came the problem above with some help from Acer computers. I deleted Net frame on my computer and reloaded it from the installer without re-booting. The installation went without a hitch. Hope that helps

Ravi August 17, 2013
