Microsoft .NET Framework is the name of a computer programming platform continuously developed by Microsoft Corporation for Microsoft Windows since 2000. By design, Microsoft .NET Framework provides a unified execution environment and interoperability layer known as the Common Language Runtime (CLR) for programs written in different languages such as C#, JScript .NET, and others.

When installed, Microsoft .NET Framework provides a system-wide Application Programming Interface (API) for all .NET-based applications. On the end-user's machine, the entire .NET Framework installation resides in the %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET folder that contains all of the necessary DLL libraries and assemblies to support the .NET API in a given environment.

Microsoft .NET Framework is pre-installed on Windows 7 and later Microsoft operating systems, and its updates are provided through the official Windows Update channels. Additionally, both web-based installers and offline installers are available from Microsoft's Download Center for different versions of the Microsoft .NET Framework, with the latest version being 4.7 (Windows 7 and later).

Thanks to several independent (incl. open-source) projects such as Mono, Microsoft .NET applications can be run on platforms, other than Microsoft Windows. .NET Core is the next generation of Microsoft .NET Framework, providing a cross-platform .NET development and runtime environment for Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and Apple Mac OS.
