How to Install .NET (for Excel Client) with Windows 10

Windows 10 (with the Anniversary update) has the .NET Framework already embedded. For Excel Client it is required to have at least version 4.5. If you update your Windows regularly, you most likely have this version already. If, however, it is not recognized by Excel Client, take these steps:

  1. Open the Control Panel.
  2. Open Programs and Features. 
  3. In the left pane, click the 'Turn Windows features on or off' link. 
  4. Enable the line called '.NET Framework 4.x'.

  6. When asked, select 'Download files from Windows Update'.
  7. If required, restart.
