This package was approved by moderator gep13 on 2/26/2019.

The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 is a highly compatible, in-place update to the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, and 4.7.
You can see the full set of changes in the .NET Framework 4.7.1 in the change list and API diff on GitHub.

This is a metapackage intended to help transition from earlier Chocolatey .NET Framework packaging convention. Actual installation is performed by the dotnetfx package.

Note that due to the way package dependencies work in Chocolatey, if you install this package and the dotnetfx package is not installed yet, Chocolatey will install the latest dotnetfx package version, which may be newer than 4.7.1. If you need to install specifically .NET Framework 4.7.1, install that version of the dotnetfx package (choco install dotnetfx --version 4.7.1).

The matching Developer Pack can be installed using this package.

To install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install dotnet4.7.1

To upgrade Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade dotnet4.7.1

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
