Windows XP Required for .NET Applications?
Posted on 2007-10-03
Hi guys and gals,
I've packaged a VB6 app in a Windows Forms project, so that I can use ClickOnce to deploy it and install updates for me. On WinXP, everything works fine, but when I try to run the app installer on Windows 2000 Professional, I get the message "Unable to install or run this application. This application requires your system to be updated to Microsoft Windows Operating System version 5.1.2600.00."
I was under the impression that the minimum requirements for .NET apps were the same as for the .NET Framework 2.0, which clearly includes Win2K.
Anyone know why I can't install this little app on Win2K Pro?
