Putting .NET 4.5 for windows 8 on a 2008 R2 Jenkins server with .net 3 .net 4 RRS feed

  • Question

  • My developers are asking me to upgrade our server to .net 4.5 so they can use the new C# 5 features, our Jenkins build server is already doing builds for .net 3 3 .net 3.5 and .net 4 will installing the .net 4.5 effect any other build processes? 

    thanks!

  • .NET Framework 4.5 is an in-place update to 4.0. By design, full backward compatibility with 4.0 is supported. My personal experience with apps targeting 4.0 being rebuilt on a Win 8 system is no issues. However, my experience with a small number (< 100) of apps is not an iron clad guarantee.

    Earlier .NET Framework versions are completely separate from 4.0/4.5, so will be unaffected.
