Can client side .NET version effect website

I have vb code on a ASP.NET 3.5 website using REPLACE to change a string storing a location.

myrptdir = Replace(myrptdir, "\dir1", "\dir2\SubFolder\")

This code worked until after the client side recieved .NET patches. This only stopped working if string contained a slash.

Had to replace above code with:

myrptdir = myrptdir.replace("dir1", "\dir2\SubFolder\")

Question is: Can loading a patch on the client side only effect this when I'm sure I'm running the code on the server side? And if so why is this possable?

If the code was being run via Javascript or maybe VBScript, then perhaps there could be a chance that your code would break. Nothing on the client should affect what the server does internally.

This only stopped working if string contained a slash.
Perhaps you can explain what you mean by "stopped working." Did you receive some sort of error, or did the replacement just not occur?

You do notice that in your Replace call, your "to find" (i.e. "dir1") string starts with a slash, whereas in your myrptdir.replace it does not, yes?

I guess this is for a web page.  Did you look at the "View Source" in both circumstances to see if there were any differences?  Remember that the server sends HTML, not .NET code to the browser.

Thanks. This is what I was looking for. HTML is sent to the browser. I needed conformation from experience.
