Quick Review

".NET Framework remover tool"

The .NET Framework Cleanup Tool is a Windows software that is designed to automatically remove selected versions of the .NET Framework from a computer. The tool is intended to be used as a last resort for cases where other methods of uninstalling, repairing or patching the .NET Framework have failed, and is not intended as a substitute for the standard uninstallation procedure.

The tool is capable of removing files, directories, registry keys and values, and Windows Installer product registration information for the .NET Framework. It supports removing all versions of the .NET Framework, including versions 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, and 4.7.2. Additionally, the tool also supports removing specific versions of the .NET Framework for specific operating systems, such as Tablet PC and Media Center, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, and Windows 7.

When removing any of the above versions of the .NET Framework, the cleanup tool will also remove any associated hotfixes and service packs. This means that users do not need to run any separate steps to remove the service pack(s) for a version of the .NET Framework.

It's worth noting that the cleanup tool will not remove versions of the .NET Framework that are installed as a part of Windows. The version of .NET Framework that is installed as a part of Windows can be found in https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2007/03/14/mailbag-what-version-of-the-net-framework-is-included-in-what-version-of-the-os/

Another important feature of the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool is its silent installation mode. This mode allows the tool to run without showing any user interface, and the user must pass in a version of the .NET Framework to remove as a command line parameter. This feature can be particularly useful for automating the removal process in a business or enterprise setting.

In addition to its primary function of removing the .NET Framework, the tool also includes a number of advanced features and options, such as the ability to backup and restore registry keys, and the option to save the log files to a specified location.

It's important to note that before using the tool, you should try the .NET Framework Repair Tool and then try the steps listed in the Microsoft blog post before using this cleanup tool. And also the cleanup tool will delete shared files and registry keys used by other versions of the .NET Framework. After running the cleanup tool, you will need to perform a repair/re-install for all other versions of the .NET Framework that are on your computer or they will not work correctly afterwards.

All in all, the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool is a powerful and advanced tool that provides a quick and easy way to remove selected versions of the .NET Framework from a computer. It is well suited for advanced users and IT professionals who may be encountering installation, uninstallation, repair or patching errors with the .NET Framework, and for those who require a more automated solution for removing the .NET Framework in a business or enterprise setting. If you are in such situation, and trying to find a solution on how to fix the .NET Framework installation, uninstallation, repair or patching errors, this tool could be a helpful solution.
