Microsoft .NET 3.5

The Microsoft® .Net 3.5 Framework is a utility required by the SNAP product for skill exams. Most computers will already have this installed. If your computer does not, running the SNAP Check Configuration utility should install it. Click http://www.emcp.com/net to view the version(s) of .Net installed on your computer. Or you can download and install it yourself for free by clicking here. When using Windows 8 or higher, further action may be necessary to install Microsoft .NET 3.5. If you have difficulty enabling Microsoft .NET 3.5, your administrator may have configured your computer to use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) instead of Windows Update for servicing. Ask your administrator to enable the policy to use Windows Update instead of WSUS. More information can be found at http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2012/05/14/windows-8-and-net-framework-3-5.aspx. Disclaimers:  While every effort will be made to support future browser platforms and computer operating systems, Paradigm Publishing cannot guarantee future compatibility.
