.NET Framework run-time is a Microsoft product used to run the applications made with Visual Studio. If you read the system requirements of most of the modern software for Windows, you will see that most of them require .NET Framework to be installed on the computer so that the application can be installed and run properly.
Recently Microsoft announced an open-source version of .NET which means that now .NET can be made available to other platforms as well like Linux and Mac.
If you are a developer or an advanced user, you will need multiple versions of .NET Framework to be installed on the same system for testing and other purposes. I find it quite difficult to find and then download each version from Microsoft’s website as the downloads are scattered all around. The purpose of this page is to organize all the download links of .NET Framework in one place so that you can download your desired version with a single click.
You can also check which versions of .NET Framework are already installed on your system.
