How to use Visual Studio 2010 for developing .NET 4.6 applications


  • Hi,

    For VS 2012 and 2013, I can install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 Developer Pack and Language Packs (, the IDEs then allow to target the applications/libaries to ".NET Framework 4.6.1". However, the description of the Framework pack does not mention to VS 2010, when I gave a try, the "Target framework" did not list ".NET Framework 4.6.1". Is there anyway to configure VS 2010 so it can be used to develop .NET 4.6 applications?

    Thank you,
