How to enable ASP.NET 4.8 on Windows Server 2016

New Contributor

Hello All,


I have installed on my server as bellow:  
+ Windows Server 2016 Standard Evaluation 64 bit
+ IIS 10 version 1607 - OS build 14393.693
+ .NET Framework 4.8 - Release DWORD: 528049


Everything will be simple when I may enable ASP.NET 4.8; but I didn't see this option here. (There is only ASP.NET 4.6)




May I enable ASP.NET 4.8 on above Windows Server 2016?


Thanks in advance,

Nguyen Duc Hoa

.NET 4.8 is an update for the built-in .NET 4.6 in build 14393, it does not change the features names

when you enable ASP.NET 4.6, it will enable ASP.NET 4.8 underneath

Is the KB4480961 for Windows 10 1607 Build 14393.2724 right?

I need to make a report for this issue, so could you please send to me a URL that discuss about this issue?

Right, but you can install .NET 4.8 KB4486129 on any 14393 build

i do not have official report or url for this, it's just based on personal experience
