This application is built using that framework and requires that at least .NET Framework 4.6.2 is installed on your computer. Windows 10 users should already have this installed since it ships with the operating system, but users of older versions of Windows may need to install a newer version of .NET Framework.
The installer for .NET Framework is available on Microsoft's Download Center. Please refer to the installation instructions provided by Microsoft for a list of supported operating systems and instructions on how to complete the installation.
