.NET Framework

Rover requires .NET 4.5 to be installed.

When installing the .Net Framework 4.5 you have two options – either installing from a “web download” (a small download, which will then install only the components you require) or download a “redistributable”, which is a large file containing all the files necessary for the .Net Framework 4.5 to be installed on any machine.

If you plan on installing the Framework on more than one machine within your organization it is suggested that you use the redistributable, to avoid multiple downloads.

The web downloader can be downloaded from:

The redistributable can be downloaded from:

It is approximately 50mb in size.
