How to Install Handbrake, and where Can I Get .net Framework 4.8?

If you are Handbrake Windows PC user, the first thing you need to concern about is how to get Handbrake installed. Because sometimes Handbrake Installer will tell you to download .net Framework 4.8. So where to get .net Framework 4.8? What if other version of .net Framework has been installed on the PC?

"Following the installation instructions, I installed the latest .NET Framework 4.8. It won't work, however - when I launch the program, I get an error which tells me that I have to install v4.8.50727. I will admit that I am unable discern which version I just installed, but I have a hunch that it's newer than this. Is there any way to get an "old" build of the .NET Framework 4.8 installer that'll get me the right version."

How to Install .NET Framework 4.8 for Handbrake

The Microsoft .NET Framework is a software framework that can be installed on computers running Microsoft Windows operating systems. It includes a large library of coded solutions to common programming problems (surely Handbrake is one of them) and a virtual machine that manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework. Since Handbrake at times lacks of coded solution, you need to install .NET Framework 4.8 before Handbrake to mend up this. And you can get .NET Framework 4.8 easily like this:

* You can install .NET Framework 4.8 on Windows 10 version 1809, version 1709, version 1703, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Windows Server 1809, Windows Server 1803, Windows Server 2016
* The .NET Framework 4.8 is not supported on Windows 10 1507 and Windows 10 1511

  • Step 1: Visit Microsoft webpage and type in ".NET Framework". The first or second link is usually "Download details: .NET Framework Version x.x redistributable"
  • Step 2: Open the download page for the .NET Framework version you want to install, e.g., .NET Framework 4.8
  • Step 3: Select the language and click Download.
  • Step 4: After the installer is downloaded, run it and follow the prompts.

Handbrake is great DVD/Video converting software on Windows, Mac and Linux OS. At times you need to learn about some minor issues about Handbrake when it comes to no-go condition. For instance, no title found, stuck at 100%, cannot rip DVD with 99 titles...

If you are not quite confidence upon computer things to defeat Handbrake errors, then you can give Handbrake Alternative a give. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum and WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe are perfectly compatible with your Windows 7 or Windows Vista OS. Especial they do not require you to install any kind of third party software or plug-ins. Unlike Handbrake needs VLC installed to rip encrypted DVDs, WinX DVD Ripper natively supports and constantly updates to support newly released Sony and Disney DVDs.

"my opnion is that mojarity of newly released disney, panamount, or sony dvds starred with 99 title. formerly i thought they simply want to seperate a large file to pieces (like vob file cannot over 0.99 g). but now i got to know that disney want to prevernt their dvds from pivate or commercial use, than create 99 titles to scramble dvd backup software scanning. not quite sure whether install .net framework is legal or not?" - Roderick
