Good morning, for 2 weeks I have been trying to install version 4.7.2 of the .NET Framework for running applications on Windows server 2016, but it shows me the following error message: ".NET Framework 4.7.2 or a later update is already installed on this computer."

When I saw this I wanted to check it out by seeing it in Regedit and I have version 4.6.01

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YS-iZ5ra6ltiI_oghqBwbZKOmWZrTIqL/view?usp=sharing

I've tried to fix version 4.6.0 and 4.7.2 but haven't seen any results.

Thanks a lot.

Best regards

    Might also check;

    reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\full" /v version

    see:

    note: as 4.7.2 support ended 2018, if you have installed service packs and hot fixes, you should be at least at 4.8.1

    Hi @Bryann Vallejo ,

    Check if there are .NET Framework-related Windows updates installed on your Windows Server 2016 computer.

    Or try installing a later version, such as . NET Framework4.8.

    Best Regards.
