Why is the version of .Net Framework not updated after I installed the new version?
You have installed the .Net Framework 3.5 or .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 successfully and without error but Server Manager and IIS report that either 3.0 or 2.0 is installed.
Frameworks 3.0 and 3.5 still use the core 2.0 ASP.NET Framework and simply add additional features. So the highest version you will see in IIS for Application Pools or Applications will be 2.XXX or 3.0 depending on if 2 was installed before 3.0.
