Microsoft .Net Framework 4 Extended

Scomis have introduced a new version of the Hosted Applications Connector which uses newer technologies, a fresh new look and better fault logging.  In order for customers to start using the updated software, you will need to ensure that the Microsoft .net 4 Framework has been installed on your computer.

Do you need to take any action?

Yes – If your Hosted Applications Connector is displaying a message about installing the .net 4 Framework, you will need to install the framework.

If you computer is Windows 10, normally the .net Framework is enabled by default, however if your IT have disabled it, please ask them to re-enable .net 4 Framework for you.
