CS15425: Invalid expression term ')'

This is really bugging me. I have code that works fine in VS 2013, but when I put it into my ASP.NET site I keep getting this error.

Code below:

Thread t1 = new Thread(() => CheckShare(ID, displayname, 1, canName, acctstatus));
----------------------------------^

From what the compiler is telling me the issue is with the first right parentheses bracket, but I dont get why it is an issue here. My VS project is .NET 2.0 and my site is running .NET 2.0.

Thanks

VS 2013 is most likely using 4.5
Linq wasn't introduced till .Net 3.5 (I believe) . . . ergo the site doesn't know what to do with that syntax.

Try going to at least 3.5 if not 4.0.

I think Kyle means "lambdas", not LINQ   ; )

As far as I can tell--because I can't really remember--lambas have been available since C# 2.0, .NET 2.0. In theory, it should work. If you take the lambda out of the picture, does the error go away?

You could also try using an anonymous delegate:

Thread t1 = new Thread(delegate() { CheckShare(ID, displayname, 1, canName, acctstatus); });
