Microsoft has released the final stable version of NET Framework 4.6.2. It is now available for download. The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.2 is a highly compatible, in-place update to the Microsoft .NET Framework 4/4.5/4.5.1/4.5.2/4.6/4.6.1. The offline package can be used in situations where the web installer cannot be used due to lack of internet connectivity. NET Framework 4.6.2 is already part of Windows 10 Anniversary update. Those using Windows 10 v1511 or other versions of Windows like Windows 8.1, Windows 7 SP1, can download and install the latest .NET framework version on their computer.
The .NET Framework is a managed execution environment that provides a variety of services to its running applications. It consists of two major components: the common language runtime (CLR), which is the execution engine that handles running applications; and the .NET Framework Class Library, which provides a library of tested, reusable code that developers can call from their own applications.
This is an offline installer. There are separate installers for the web and offline installation. If you intend to redistribute either of these installers in the setup for your own product or application, we recommend that you choose the web installer because it is smaller and typically downloads faster. You can download the web installer here. Wherever possible, Microsoft recommends you use the Web Installer in lieu of the Offline Package for optimal efficiency and bandwidth requirements. The offline package can be used in situations where the web installer cannot be used due to lack of internet connectivity. This package is larger than the web installer and does not include the language packs. You can download and install the language packs from here.
