Are there any good reasons lớn use .NET Framework 4 Client Protệp tin instead of the full version?

I mean, real-life reasons. I am creating a .NET application, và since it"s quite easy lớn create an installer that will install the .NET framework on a client machine, why bother using the Client Profile?


The documentation answers this:

The .NET Framework 4 Client Protệp tin is a subphối of the .NET Framework 4 that is optimized for client applications. It provides functionality for most client applications, including Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Forms, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), & ClickOnce features. This enables faster deployment & a smaller install package for applications that target the .NET Framework 4 Client Protệp tin.
