  1. System requirements

    Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 3

    Windows XP SP3
    Windows Server 2003 SP2
    Windows Vista SP1 or later
    Windows Server 2008 (not supported on Server Core Role)
    Windows 7
    Windows Server 2008 R2 (not supported on Server Core Role)
    Windows 7 SP1
    Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    According to Microsoft the answer would be No
  2. I haven't tested it, but I want to point out that "Supported" is different than if you can or cannot install it.
  3. Alright, I have now tested it and you CANNOT install .Net Framework 4.0 on Windows 2000. Maybe this will help someone else who came to this forum looking for the answer. If you have an application that require .Net 4.0 (as I did) it will not work with Windows 2000.
