Microsoft’s latest .NET Framework 4 Client Profile is available on Windows Update (WU) as “recommended update”  KB982670. It provides a subset of features from the .NET Framework 4.0.

The client Profile is released as an recommended update for Windows 7 and Windows Vista and as an “optional update” for Windows XP (you need to run the WU manually and select the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile to install it).


Many Windows users have reported that they are getting Windows update error 80200053 while installing this particular update (also KB982526) on their machines. If you are getting the same error, just restart the computer and try installing afterwards, or boot in Safe Mode with Networking and install the update. You may also try to install the standalone version of the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile from the link given below:

    I’ve noticed something similar on several machines. It seems like the .NET 4 Client Profile installer stalls and sits there silently, then when trying to install another application it takes that install down, and comes up with some message about having to revert the changes made by the .NET 4 Client Profile installer. I wish I knew a way to avoid this.

    Microsoft announced that they would be giving support for Ribbon interface to be used in applications, but i have not found anything related to it to make my own application with ribbon interface. Does anyone know whether it is supported or not.
