How to verify .NET Framework version

SOLVEDby Intuit1Updated 1 year ago

Since ProFile version 2020.5.5, users are unable to work in ProFile without first upgrading to .NET 4.8.

Installing Microsoft .NET 4.8

To assist with this required upgrade, the .NET version on your computer will automatically update to .NET 4.8 when you update ProFile or run a fresh install or repair of ProFile with the latest download version.

To repair ProFile or run a fresh install, download the latest installer here.

How to verify in Windows Control Panel

1. Go to the search bar in the Windows task bar and type Control Panel. Open the Control Panel application.

How to verify with Registry Editor

You can verify that you have the correct .NET Framework version by using the search feature in the Windows taskbar and typing in Regedit to find the Registry Editor application.

1. Open Registry Editor.
