CA Release Automation - Release Operations Center (Nolio)

Issue/Introduction

Can you please confirm if CA Release Automation requires .NET application and or Visual Studio.

Environment

Release : 6.6, 6.7 or higher

Component : CA RELEASE AUTOMATION RELEASE OPERATIONS CENTER

Resolution

As per verification in system requirements of overall RA product and I don't see dependency on .Net/Visual Studio code.

With the context you provided, I believe that your windows servers may be having those possibly due to below cause.

1: The servers may be having IIS enabled, whose pre-requisite is .NET Framework and VS C++ redistributable

2: The server may be having PowerShell, whose also lead to availability of .NET Framework.

From RA end I don't see any dependency on .NET Framework or Visual Studio, however it looks like they are on server due to some other windows component with them as pre-requisite.
