      Hi Susan:

      Thanks for the heads up.ย  I just checked the Windows Update history on my Win 10 Pro v22H2 machine and can confirm that the 2023-10 MS .NET Runtime v6.0.24 (KB5032874) was delivered to my machine today.

      I booted up my machine this morning and didn’t notice an unexpected system restart during the day.

      Thank You Susan.

      I had thought Acronis was winding me up Yesterday, one day after installing the October patches. It told me I needed the September .NET ones.

      Now both new KBs installed OK with no problems.

      Still not sure exactly what program on my PC requires .NET 7, but the October .NET 7.0 Update (KB5032875) got installed Tues.

      Anyone know of a way to determine exactly what program(s) need .NET 7?

        To answer your question, you will find it at the bottom of this article.

        Never fear, .NET 8 is on the way!

          Mark,

          Thank you replying to noads question, but maybe I am being a bit (seriously) dim this morning, as I cannot see anything at the bottom of that article that would help me easily find out which of my installed programs (which have not been developed by me) use which versions of .NET. So could you be a bit more specific please.

          Cheers,

          John (A lot old and bit groggy today).

            There is no easy way to see what apps require what .NET, you need to check each app.
            Ultimately it doesn’t matter, if an app needs a later version it will install it for you.

            cheers, Paul

            They are under “related releases”.

              Related releases

              This section contains information about related products that have releases that coincide with the .NET 7 release.

              Those are simply other Microsoft products that were released at the same time as .NET 7 and doesn’t really help ID which programs are using .NET 7 on anyone’s PC; unless you just happen to have one of them installed which I don’t!

              I took a look thru my backups and determined .NET 7 was installed the same day I installed my IPVanish VPN software and, since the operating description of IPVanish indicates it requires .NET, that’s obviously how it got installed on my PC.

              BTW, it’s actually called Microsoft Windows Desktop Runtime – 7.0.## (x64) in the list of installed apps on my PC and it started out as v7.0.4 when it was installed back in July and has been updated 3 times, most recently to v7.0.13 after the recent Oct KB5032875 update.

        Just like jrp2706, I found nothing in the article Mark posted that would help ID which of my program(s) are using .NET 7.

        There is no easy way to see what apps require what .NET, you need to check each app.

        I figured that might be the case but had to ask as maybe one of the experts here on AskWoody might know how to do it.

        So what specific app modules (.dll, .xml, etc.) would indicate it’s using .NET and help ID which version?

    • #2597557

      You can write an exe or dll that uses .NET.
      XML is just a plain text data format.
      The only indication of whether the app uses .NET is from the author.

      cheers, Paul
