.NET Framework 4 Required

The VirtualShield Windows application is fully compatible with the following Operating Systems: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10

Windows 8 and above comes included with Microsoft .NET Framework 4 right out-of-the-box. However, some installations of Windows 7 only come included with version 3.5.

If you receive the error message below, you may need to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 first before you can install VirtualShield:

.NET Framework will be provided automatically by Windows Update, if automatic updates are enabled on your computer. Otherwise you may need to install it manually.

This article will instruct you on how to install the correct version of .NET Framework for your specific Operating System.


Microsoft .NET Framework Setup

Note: There are two different versions of .NET Framework available on Microsoft's website, a standalone installer and a web-based installer.

If you have a slow internet connection or your PC runs on battery, we recommend the web-based installer. Otherwise download the standalone installer.

You can download them both from the links provided below. Once .NET Framework 4.0 is installed, you can proceed to install VirtualShield:

1
Download the standalone installer:

2
Download the web-based installer:

.NET Framework 4.5.1 (Recommended)

Tip: If you're using Windows 7 SP1 (Service Pack 1) and above, we also recommend installing Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1. This is the latest version of .NET Framework 4 available.

This update is normally provided automatically by Windows Update, but in some cases you may need to download it manually.

If you experience any other issues during the installation, try installing .NET Framework 4.5.1 as well. Once .NET Framework 4.5.1 is installed, you can proceed to install VirtualShield:

1
Download the standalone installer:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40779

2
Download the web-based installer:
