I'm absolutely lost. Please help me with this deployment issue.
I'm writing a cpp MFC app in Visual Studio 2008. I'm fairly new to cpp and like many others I started off with some tutorials and .sln files that were included with them.
I deploy my app using the deployment project of VS 2008. It seems that my app is using some .NET 3.5 Framework SP1 components because if people don't use the setup.exe (generated by VS) and install the msi directly my app doesn't function properly.
However installing .NET 3.5 SP 1 is a hassle to say the least.So I would really like to keep my dependencies to NET 2.0. (I understand even Win XP SP1 ships with net 2.0 by default)
Where can I found a comprehensive list of components/header files/functions I should adusjt/not use to roll back the .NET version?
Will it suffice to start a new MFC app. VS 2008 project but select NET 2.0 from the dropdown box available in the top right in project selection dialogue and copy the code?
Whats the best way to tackle this?
thanks in advance!
