    Announcing the .NET Framework 4.7 General Availability


    Today, we are announcing the general availability of the .NET Framework 4.7. The .NET Framework 4.7 was released as part of Windows 10 Creators Update a month ago. You can now install the .NET Framework 4.7 on other versions of Windows.

    You can download the .NET Framework 4.7:


    The .NET Framework 4.7 includes improvements in several areas:

    • High DPI support for Windows Forms applications on Windows 10
    • Touch support for WPF applications on Windows 10
    • Enhanced cryptography support
    • Support for C# 7 and VB 15, including ValueTuple
    • Support for .NET Standard 1.6
    • Performance and reliability improvements

    Please see the Announcing the .NET Framework 4.7 blog post to learn more about each of these improvements.

    You can see the complete list of improvements in the .NET Framework 4.7 release notes.

    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

    Closing

    Thanks for trying out the .NET Framework 4.7. Please tell us what you think about the release and how it is working for you in your environment. Please share your feedback in the comments below or on GitHub.

    For more information on the release, please see Announcing the .NET Framework 4.7 and the .NET Framework 4.7 release notes.

    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.
