KB3151800 - The .NET Framework 4.6.2 offline installer for Windows

If you had previously installed the .NET Framework 4.6.2 Preview (KB3120735), I highly recommend you uninstall it first.

From Windows 7, this is straightforward, and can be done from Control Panel->Programs.

From Windows 8.1, this is a little more involved. You have to go to View Installed Updates, and uninstall Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3120803). After that, you need to open an administrative Command Prompt and type:

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Once that completes, you can proceed with installing .NET Framework 4.6.2.

If you need a language pack for .NET Framework 4.6.2, you can get it here:

After testing with several of my clients' applications, I must report that .NET Framework 4.6.2 has both stablity and reliability problems. I do not have a choice but to recommend avoiding it until Microsoft has published some hotfix rollups for it.

More broadly, all versions of .NET Framework 4.6 (all the "Windows 10 versions," if you will) still have significant stability and reliability issues.

The latest version of .NET Framework that works well, in my experience, is 4.5.2.
