When you install L2 Dealer the program will automatically check for this, and prompt you to install the .NET framework if required.
If you would prefer to install the .NET framework independently, it can be downloaded from Microsoft here.
Alternatively you can go to your computer’s Windows Update page (accessed from your Start menu or at Windows Update) and select .NET from the options in the ‘optional updates’ section.
