Microsoft ended support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. This change has affected your software updates and security options. Learn what this means for you and how to stay protected.

Introduction
Update 4.0.2 for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is now available. This update contains some new features that are based on specific requests from some top customer and on some important .NET Framework scenarios. This update also contains some important software updates for ClickOnce and for .NET Framework 4-based Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications.

Notes
  • This update release updates only the runtime files for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4. For more information about the details of this update, see the "More Information" section.
  • This update contains all the runtime changes from the following update:
    2478063 Update 4.0.1 for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 - Runtime Update
    Therefore, this update is a cumulative update. Any application built for the .NET Framework 4.01 can run on a computer that has the .NET Framework 4 and the Update 4.0.2 runtime installed. We recommend that applications built for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.1 be upgraded to the Update 4.0.2 runtime. However, this upgrade is optional.
  • We do not support any application that this update was used to build on any prerelease version of the .NET Framework 4 such as a Beta. Additionally, we recommend that any such application be upgraded to at least the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 RTM.

MORE INFORMATION

Features that are introduced by this update

AlwaysOn support in SqlClient

In SQL Server code named "Denali," AlwaysOn is introduced as a High Availability topology. With this topology, secondary nodes can be accessed by read workloads. To do this, secondary nodes must only accept read-only connections. This operation requires a special intent lock to be passed together with a connection. To meet this requirement, and also to keep the connectivity information decoupled from the application, SqlClient includes the following new connection string keywords:
  • ApplicationIntent
    This keyword is passed as a connection string parameter. When this keyword is used, applications can directly connect to a read-only secondary server, or can be automatically redirected to secondary servers in an availability group.
  • MultiSubnetFailover
    This keyword supports fast failover connectivity for geographically-distributed topologies.
For more information about AlwaysOn, visit the following Microsoft website:

SQL Server Express Local Database Runtime support in SqlClient

SQL Server Express LocalDB is a new installation and execution mode of SQL Server Express that runs as a stand-alone executable and that requires a minimum amount of effort for installation. When developers connect to database files directly, a transparent SQL Server Express infrastructure runs in the background. For current SQL Server technology, LocalDB offers a Run As Normal User (RANU) user instance in a smaller package.

SqlClient adds support for SQL Server Express LocalDB connectivity that can be used by a developer.

For more information about SQL Server Express LocalDB, visit the following Microsoft website:


A new DbProviderFactories.GetFactory overload

With this overload, you can use a valid DbConnection object to obtain a DbProviderFactory object.

For more information about the DbProviderFactory methods, visit the following MSDN website:

Known issues with this update

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You create an ASP.NET Framework application in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) that targets the .NET Framework 4.0.2.
  • You deploy the application on a server. The server has the .NET Framework 4 and this update installed.
  • You try to access the application from a client computer.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
Description
: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file that is required to service this request. Please review the specific error details here and change your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message
: The 'targetFramework' attribute in the <compilation> element of the Web.config file is used only to target version 4.0 and later of the .NET Framework (for example, '<compilation targetFramework="4.0">'). The 'targetFramework' attribute currently references a version that is later than the installed version of the .NET Framework. Specify a valid target version of the .NET Framework, or install the required version of the .NET Framework.

Source Error:

Line 2: <configuration>Line 3: <system.web>Line 4: <compilation debug="false" targetFramework=".NETFramework, version=v4.0.2" />Line 5: </system.web>Line 6: </configuration>

Cause
This issue occurs because the ASP.NET code cannot correctly parse the target framework version that is specified in the Web.config file.

Resolution
To resolve this issue, install update 2468871.
