    Supported Windows Versions

    The .NET Framework 4.7 is supported on the following Windows versions:

    • Windows 10 Creators Update (included in-box)
    • Windows 10 Anniversary Update
    • Windows 8.1
    • Windows 7 SP1

    The .NET Framework 4.7 is supported on the following Windows Server versions:

    • Windows Server 2016
    • Windows Server 2012 R2
    • Windows Server 2012
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    DirectX Dependency

    The .NET Framework 4.7 now uses DirectX 11 components for WPF. These components are available on more recent versions of Windows.

    You must install an additional DirectX component in order to install the .NET Framework 4.7 on Windows 7 SP1, Windows 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 2012 and Windows 2012 R2. The installation includes a single dll that will get added to your system. It will only be used by WPF applications. It is not possible to install the .NET Framework 4.7 without installing this component.

    You can install this component for your operating system:


    Please see the following for more information: The .NET Framework 4.7 installation is blocked on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 because of a missing d3dcompiler update

    basically all they did was took .net framework 4.7 out of the creator's update and repackaged it in to an installer so people on 1607 could get it

    Because 1703 includes 4.7.

    This update only matters if a program comes out written in 4.7 and you want to install it,

    But installing 4.7 on Windows 8.1/2012 R2 saves from installing a bunch of patches.
