Microsoft NET Framework 3.0

There seems to be a lot of discussion about Microsoft NET Framework lately.  I am currently running ACT! 2007 on Windows XP with Microsoft NET Framework 2.0 and all seems to be working fine.  Whenever I activate Microsoft Update it suggests I upgrade to Microsoft NET Framework 3.0.  Is this upgrade recommended?

 

Thanks,

Brian

It is not an upgrade and would have no value for you unless you have a program built in it. It would take up resources and RAM that is better used.

 

You should only install .Net Framework versions that you have applications that need them

Thanks for the info Mike.  I guess my question is - does ACT! 2007 need Framework 3.0 or 2.0?

I'm having trouble running another program. I have a hunch it may need net framework 3 becasue I found a link to it in one of the program folders. Will version 3 interfer with ACT 10?

Are you sure about this? I am willing to load it if it does not cause a problem. I need my database.

Re: Microsoft NET Framework 3.0

Okay, I'll give it a try.  I know how difficult updates and uninstalling has been with some of these. Maybe it was different with Act 8 which I had before.
