Problem with Win 8 NET 3.5.
Posted on 2013-12-21
I have written a WinForm application under Net 3.5 and VS 2008. My installation program install Net 4 because I want to avoid the problem with Win 8 that have not install NET 3.5 and it is not possible my own installation to add 3.5 As you know, this should be done via Windows – not good idea for mass-populiar application …
So under XP and Win 7 this style work fine - I install NET 4 with my own install, but my application is compiled on NET 3.5/. But with win 8 – installation is OK, but when I run my app it show me a message that this application use Net 3.5 and I should install it. How can I avoid this ? May be with include manifest that tell the OS that run under NET 4 is fine ? .
P.S: WIn 8 look like a joke with this Metro interface and the new restristion it has, it is not for seriuos working people in any area, even in ordinary office work ...
