What is Microsoft® .NET Framework 4.0?

The Microsoft® .NET Framework 4.0 is a programming infrastructure created by Microsoft® for building, deploying, and running applications and services that use .NET technologies, such as desktop applications and Web services. As part of the installation, you might be asked to download and install the Microsoft® .NET Framework 4.0. In most cases, you will probably already have this installed and will not be asked again. The .NET Framework must be installed before you install ProFile. If you do not first install Microsoft® .NET 4.0, ProFile 2013 will not install properly.
