Well sometimes some apps require its users to firstly install .NET 4.5 on the system. Without it, that app will probably won’t work at all or it may work but crashes. Mostly apps programmed / coded with with C#, Visual Basic and F# languages.
Yet, most latest Windows apps created with Visual Studio 2012 will also need it.
Unfortunately, Microsoft provides only online installer version available in its download link. It means, the first setup installer you download will be the online (web) installer so once you run it, it will not actually install the app but firstly connecting to Microsoft’s server to download all necessary files into your computer.
