I have a .Net project that builds and runs fine in debug mode

But when I compile and try and run the executeable... it doesn't run.

Says that there is a .Net 4.5.1 versus 4.5.2 issue?

is it possible that you have a solution with (at least) 2 projects (SendGridNG and SendGrid)? Check the properties of both (or all) projects to make sure they are all targeting the same version of the framework

can you change the targeted framework of your app for 4.5.2?

can you change the targeted framework of your app for 4.5.2 before building the solution (and then try the .exe)?

If I set the Target Framework it builds fine
It actually runs in debug perfectly

But the exe is not actually running

you may have to clean your solution before rebuilding to have it to work.

OK... one of the issues was the library I was referencing.
Reverting to 4.5 allowed to build with no errors.
BUT...
When I double click on the EXE... the form is NOT running

What type of error message it shows?
Are you trying to execute on different machine with other .net framework?

I have created one sample Win form and it works!

but isn't your library targeting 4.5.2? You would be better to have the app to target the same version.

>>When I double click on the EXE... the form is NOT running

Any exceptions? What is the behavior?
