Installed .NET Framework 4.6.2 and Raymondcc .NET Detector could detect the version but v4.5 was gone I guess cause the program showed as not installed. There are a couple of free programs which will also give you information in respect to installed .NET frameworks. Another option is downloading a ready made PowerShell script that will detect .NET versions and show the information in a much more friendly way. Press Enter to run the command and you’ll be a version number next to your registry entry, in our case “v4.0”. In your command prompt window, paste the following by copying it and right-clicking or enabling copy-paste with Ctrl + C/V. Unfortunately, as you may have noticed, however, the process to do so isn’t particularly intuitive.
Download the Windows 11 ISO file from Microsoft’s Windows 11 download page. Your computer is now ready to install Windows 11 even if it doesn’t meet the minimum requirements. Exit the Registry Editor window and restart your PC to apply the changes.
Starting with Windows 10, however, all patches are delivered in cumulative packages. On 15 August 2016, Microsoft announced that effective October 2016, all future patches to Windows 7 and 8.1 would become cumulative as with Windows 10. The ability to download the program can’t start because wimgapi.dll and install individual updates would be removed as existing updates are transitioned to this model. This has resulted in increasing download sizes of each monthly update. An analysis done by Computerworld determined that the download size for Windows 7 x64 has increased from 119.4MB in October 2016 to 203MB in October 2017. Initially, Microsoft was very vague about specific changes within each cumulative update package.
So once a security update is available, you should immediately install the fix to protect your system from malware attacks. The Monthly Rollup is product specific, addresses both new security issues and non-security issues in a single update and will proactively include updates that were released in the past.
After you complete the steps, the security module will enable, and the computer should now meet the Windows 11 requirement. The system disk needs to be 64GB or larger – The partition system partition needs to be larger than 64GB. If you have a device with limited capacity, you will need to upgrade the hard drive. Most antivirus programs can be set up to protect certain files and folders from malware. Rarely, this protection goes a bit overboard, and can interfere with normal activities on your PC.
I never really cared for anything from MS and remember installing MSDOS and later Windows from floppy disks. Once we had Windows95 it became common to have lockups and crashes continuing into Windows98 and WindowsME.
While a clean Windows 10 install might take longer to complete, it’s perfectly achievable even if you’re not the most technically minded. Microsoft built the operating system to be easy to reinstall and has made provisions so users can keep hold of their data even with a fresh version.
Developers are constantly updating software and systems to give users the best experience possible. This includes how a piece of software accesses and processes information, and how it does its job. Having the latest drivers, for example, can seriously impact how well a system operates – especially graphics and video card drivers. Many users turn off automatic updates for that reason.
