You can improve the performance and security of Reflection Desktop 16, Reflection 2014, or Reflection 2011 by installing the latest .NET Framework. This technical note describes the performance improvements, as well as how to obtain and install the latest .NET Framework.
If you run Reflection on one of the following platforms,
Windows Server 2008 SP2
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
you can experience significant performance improvements if you run the latest version of the Microsoft .NET Framework (version 4.5 or higher).
Gains of up to 25% faster execution are possible based on our testing, but individual results may vary depending on the hardware and software environments in use. Even more significant gains in performance are possible with running Windows 8 Pro and .NET Framework 4.5.1. (Windows 8.1 includes .NET Framework 4.5.1.)
.NET Upgrade Information
In late 2013, the Microsoft Windows Update application (Control Panel) started to show .NET version 4.5.1 as an “Important “ update, so many users may have already installed it. If you have not yet updated your .NET version, you can use the Windows Update service to get the latest release, or go to the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 download site:
In late 2017, Microsoft released .NET version 4.71 and this can be used as a replacement for earlier versions of .NET to provide better security and faster performance with Reflection Desktop 16. This update is available from the Microsoft download site:
Note: You must have administrator privileges to install the stand-alone .NET Framework version 4.5 or later and its updates on a Windows system, and a restart of the system may be necessary after applying this upgrade.
