Definition: .NET Framework Client Profile

A client-only version of the .NET Framework that was introduced with .NET Framework 3.5. If an application requires the .NET Framework, it is often packaged with the app, and the full version adds around 250MB to the download. By eliminating the compiler and various server components (Web services, Active Server Pages, etc.), the Client Profile is about 80% smaller. See .NET Framework.
