Is it possible to install .Net 4.5.2 on a clean Windows 7 without any service packs installed?
I am asking since the release notes for 4.0 state
- Windows 7 - Windows 7 SP1
while the 4.5.2 only state
- Windows 7 SP1
However, the accompanying text on the download page says
The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 is a highly compatible, in-place update to the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 and Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1.
So, what is the case now? Is it highly compatible and can be installed on Windows 7 (no sp), or can it only be installed on Win7 SP1?
