If this is run on a UNIX based operating system you can simply concatenate them like so `cat inputfile_0 inputfile_1 ... inputfile_n > outputfile` but there's no native way to do that on Windows as it's not considered a good practice for most applications.

If the files are text based you can open them up in an editor such as Notepad++ and append the contents of one file to the other.

If the files are binary based, you've most likely read the instructions incorrectly. Appending binary data is a terrible practice. It's likely that the folder should be merged, and any preexisting files should be overwritten with newer versions.

.NET 3.x is an extension to .NET 2.0, whereas .NET 4.x is a whole new beast. You can have both installed at the same time. You can try running the .NET 3.5 installer but normally if it's missing it will notify you rather than crash outright.

yeah all it does is say that WindowsFormApplication1 has stopped working and is checking for a solution to the problem then closes right away

You will need to talk to whomever designed that application. They couldn't even be bothered to name it properly so I can only assume that it was written by an amateur.
