Will this require a reboot? Even if I include all the security patches as well.

NB This will not be to .Net 3.5 SP1.

It's not an upgrade, per se. Different versions of the .NET framework are a side-by-side install. Usually it does require a reboot because the 3.5 installer will service pack 2.0 and it's not unusual for something to have 2.0 framework files locked.

It's not an upgrade, they are two different products that can coexist. And yes, it will require a reboot.
