SharePoint 2013/2016/2019 and .NET framework 4.8

.NET framework has been released a long time ago but ever now and than I receive a question about supportability of a specific SharePoint version with .NET framework 4.8.

So for your reference: SharePoint 2013, 2016, and 2019 are supported with .NET Framework 4.8.

  1. Is there any prove in official MS docs that SharePoint 2019 installed on machine with .NET Framework 4.8 are officially supported?

    Your statement “SharePoint 2013, 2016, and 2019 are supported with .NET Framework 4.8″slightly contradict with blog header “All Posts provided “AS IS” with no warranties, and confers no rights.

  2. Thanks Stefan. Microsoft has announced that 4.6.x and below will be EOL 4/2022. Would it be Best Practice to install 4.8 and remove versions < 4.8 on SP FE and APP servers?

      .NET 4 has inplace upgrade. With other words only the most recent .NET version will be installed on a machine.
      Yes, you should upgrade .NET 4 to the most recent version.
