Is feature ".Net framework 3.5.1" 64 bit? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Trying to turn on the .net 3.5.1 feature on my Server 2008 R2 Standard x64 machine using Server Manager.  Before I do so I had a question.

    I have a 64 bit application I'm about to install on this server.  Also installing Java JRE 64 bit.  The prerequisites say to install .net 2.0 or higher

    I assume the .net version I need to install must be 64 bit to match.  I wasn’t able to find a 64 bit version of .net 3.5.1 anywhere on Microsoft Downloads (doesn’t specify 32 vs 64 bit)

    Then I read that .Net on Server 2008 comes as a feature one enables via Server Manager.  Can I assume this version is inherently 64 bit since this is a 64 bit server?  What if I had wanted 32 bit .Net?  Where's the distinction?
