Only for support problems!

For Windows XP or Windows Vista it is possible that .NET Framework 3.5 (or later) has not yet been installed. In this case you will need to install it. Windows 7 already has .NET Framework 3.5. It is NOT necessary to install the .NET Framework on Windows 7! You will only need to install .NET Framework in situation where .NET Framework 3.5 or later has problems functioning properly.
