Compatibility between .net .1.1 versions
Posted on 2006-11-30
Our programmers have created our client-server app using .net 1.1 service pack 1. The .net version we use on our machines gives an mscorlib.dll version as 1.1.4322.2032
We have a client site where their web server is running 1.1.4322.537, and the client machines are all on 1.1.4322.2032 (having installed .net and the service pack from the microsoft downloads area). Our system refuses to run. Normally we would tell clients to uninstall .net and reapply the service pack on the server, but in this instance their IT department (outsourced consultants whose default position is to say 'it's nothing to do with us) is refusing to change the configuration of the server, in case any existing apps are using 1.1.4322.537. So, having searched the microsoft site in vain, my questions:
1) Is 1.1.4322.537 an earlier version of sp 1, or is not in fact sp1 at all?
2) Assuming it is sp1, where can we find a copy of the earlier 1.1.4322.537 to install on the client?
3) If we can't, are there any work arounds? at this point I'd have to find more information for you as our system itself simply reports a compatibility problem.
When is a framework not a framework? Doesn't it imply communality?
Any information very gratefully received - this is marked as urgent because we've failed to implement.
