Update from older versions of .net to V4.7.2:

The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 is a highly compatible, in-place update to Microsoft .NET Framework 4, 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, and 4.7.1. The web installer is a small package that automatically determines and downloads only the components that apply to a particular platform. The web installer also installs the language pack that matches the language of the users operating system. The offline package can be used when the web installer cannot be used because of a lack of Internet connectivity. This package is larger than the web installer and does not include the language packs. When you install this package, the following packages or updates are installed, depending on your operating system:

  • On Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Microsoft.NET Framework 4.7.2 is listed as an installed product under the Programs and Features item in Control Panel.

.NET framework V4.7.2 can only be installed with Administrative privileges and it requires a restart as soon as the setup is completed.   The Web installer might give issues when Windows updates are blocked on a network. In such a case, one can use the offline installer, which can be found in the links above.
