"Go Live" licence? Deploy to production without running the MSIs? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there

    Is the June 2011 CTP licensed for use in production?

    Is there a way to deploy it to a production server without installing the 2 MSI files? I have tried copying the assemblies into my BIN folder and referencing them but it does not work without specifically setting the target framework to v4.2, and that is not recognised as a version without running the MSI.


    Any ideas when there will be a final release?

  • The June 2011 CTP is not licensed for production use. The improvements in that were included in the June 2011 CTP are now in the EF 5 beta.

    The .NET Framework 4.5 beta has shipped and it has a go-live license. There's no special targeting requirement here. Building with VS11 is required for these new features (the beta can be downloaded for free). 

    Notice: A majority of the data services questions have been posted in the releas forum so we’re shutting down the pre-release forum to consolidate to the release forum for practicality.
