ASP.NET version and menu control support

My menu works properly on my local machine, but not on the host server.
How do I find out which version of asp.net is being used on my local machine?

How can I set web.config statements that specify a asp.net version?

I realize that this may require a different web.config file to be published to the server.

Thanks,

What happened on the server side with the menu??
It's a 3rd party control??

On the Visual Studio you go to WebSite/Start Option /Build and you will see the Framework that you're using

To Set The TArget Framework on the Web.Config
<system.web>
    <compilation debug="false" strict="false" explicit="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
</system.web>

Also double check that the Control, if is a 3rd party control, gets into the Web.Config on the host server and CHeck in both browser(Mozilla Firefox and IE just in Case)

What happened on the server side with the menu??
It was installed with Visual Studio 2012.

The menu dynamic items drop down on the local machine but not on the server.

On the Visual Studio you go to WebSite/Start Option /Build and you will see the Framework that you're using.

It is .NET Framework 4.5

To Set The TArget Framework on the Web.Config
<system.web>
    <compilation debug="false" strict="false" explicit="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
</system.web>

web.Config:

I just changed 4.0 to 4.5.

Should I change the following from  Version=3.5.0.0, to 4.5?

 <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.5" >
      <assemblies>
        <add assembly="System.Core, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B77A5C561934E089"/>

      </assemblies>

    </compilation>

    <httpRuntime targetFramework="4.5" />

The server is running 4.5.50709.

Should I change 4.5 to 4.5.50709 in my web.config?

Thanks,

You don't need to change on your web.config the Add Assembly references if is not a control that use only 3.5 Framework and not supported on 4.5, when you compiled the project and published, it will do all for you. ALso check the compatibility view on your IE.

Did you try with both browsers as I tell you before??
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Thanks for your suggestions.

I did not try yet with other browsers.

This is how I fixed it:

                <asp:Menu ID="Menu1" runat="server"
                    Orientation="Horizontal"
                    CssClass="Menu" StaticHorizontalOffset="1"

                    StaticHoverStyle-CssClass="auto-style1"
                    StaticSelectedStyle-CssClass="auto-style1"
                    IncludeStyleBlock="False"
                    DynamicHoverStyle-Width="160px"
                    Width="100px"
                    RenderingMode="Default"
                    DisappearAfter="100"

                    DynamicVerticalOffset="2"
                    DynamicHoverStyle-BackColor="#00CCFF"  
                    MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="3" Height="48px">

                                    NavigateUrl="ReplacePassword.aspx" Text="Replace Password" Value="mnuReplacePassword">

                                <asp:MenuItem

                                </asp:MenuItem>
                            </asp:MenuItem>
               
                            <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="#" Text="Site Usage Help" Value="mnuSiteHelp">

                        </asp:MenuItem>
              </asp:MenuItem>
             
             </Items>
         </asp:Menu>

These were the most important changes:

IncludeStyleBlock="False"
RenderingMode="Default"

Here is the result.  I could not set the colors. However after 5 days of work, this is acceptable.

I am using IE 10 on Windows 8. The menu works well on my machine, but not on the host server.

The links you provided are excellent.  I will save them for future reference.
