Description

Hi,
I just downloaded and installed .NET Framework 4.0 RC x64 (48MB) from here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a9ef9a95-58d2-4e51-a4b7-bea3cc6962cb&displaylang=en

And notified that this setup package will install both on x86 and x64 systems?!
Is this expected behaviour?
That x64 installs on both platforms but x86 just installs on x86?!

Thank you :)

Hi,

This is the expected behavior. The X86 package is designed to install only on X86 machine. If you are targeting both x86 and x64 machine, we recommend you use dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe.

Thanks,
.NET Framework deployment team
