|Why .NET ?
Question : Why is that whenever I install the
ATI graphics card driver it asks for the NET Framework to be installed as well?
Answer : The Microsoft NET Framework is compulsory whenever the ATI
graphics card driver is present. This is because ATI uses the NET Framework
to display its Control Center. The NET Framework comes in two versions; 1.1 and
2.0. You can install both version 1.1 and 2.0 on your computer with little problems. New
applications being written now will most likely require 2.0, but older applications need
1.1. Do note that the NET Framework 2.0 is not backwards compatible with 1.1.
