This is a metapackage intended to help transition from earlier Chocolatey .NET Framework packaging convention. Actual installation is performed by the dotnetfx package.
Note that due to the way package dependencies work in Chocolatey, if you install this package and the dotnetfx package is not installed yet, Chocolatey will install the latest dotnetfx package version, which may be newer than 4.7. If you need to install specifically .NET Framework 4.7, install that version of the dotnetfx package (
choco install dotnetfx --version 4.7).
The matching Developer Pack can be installed using this package.
