Notes:

a.^ Expression Blend only covers the Windows Presentation Foundation part of .NET Framework 3.0.
b.^ ^ .NET Framework 3.5 is not installed along with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. It must be installed either from a Windows installation media or from the Internet. Control Panel always attempts the latter.[10]
