Hi WSUS Admins,


Microsoft .NET Framework 4 and .NET Framework 4 Client Profile will be made available via Windows Server Update Services.


The .NET Framework 4 is Microsoft's comprehensive and consistent programming model for building applications that have visually stunning user experiences, seamless and secure communication, and the ability to model a range of business processes.

The .NET Framework 4 Client Profile provides a subset of features from the .NET Framework 4. The Client Profile is designed to run client applications and to enable the fastest possible deployment for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows Forms technology.


The .NET Framework 4 works side by side with older Framework versions. Applications that are based on earlier versions of the Framework will continue to run on the version targeted by default.

  • When I try to import .NET framework 4.0 into WSUS for distribution, I receive the message "This update cannot be imported into Windows Server Update Services because it does not have the required applicability information".  Anyone know when this will be resolved so we can distribute through WSUS?

  • I imagine this may help??

    Some updates are not compatible with the version of WSUS you are running. Additionally, some updates may not have the needed applicability information (in other words, the logic that determines whether an update should be installed). These types of updates cannot be imported.  

    Make sure you are running the latest version of WSUS -

  • I can't see it in the list?

    Am I missing something here. Running WSUS 3 SP2.

  • Thanks, I can see it now.  You need to turn on Feature Packs in Products and Classifications in WSUS Options

  • Thanks Greg.  I got the answer I needed without even needing look for it.
