c# .NET 4.5 (target framework not available in VS2010?)

Hi Experts,

I installed .NET 4.5 thinking I could set it as target framework in c# for VS2010.  All I have is .NET framework 4.0...  Is this not supported in VS2010?

Also, how much "fun" is it typically to port applications from VS2010 to VS2012?

Thank you very much,
Mike

VS2010 can't target .Net Framework 4.5, because that didn't exists when VS2010 came in.

If you want to know what's new in .Net Framework 4.5 and VS2012, check this:
