What is the default target framework for VS2017 ?

Answers

  • Hi Adhik7,

    I am using VS 2017 RC Enterprise, and the default .NET Framework for projects I will create is 4.5.2 even the highest is 4.6.2:

    As Carlos's reply, VS 2017 RC supports from .NET Framework 2.0 to 4.6.2

    Hope it's helpful.

    Best regards,

    Fletcher

  • Thanks for your answer, I knew that the VS2017 RC will support all the existing frame works including the 4.6.2. But what i know exactly is what is the default target framework of VS2017? 

    Eg: When i create a new project in VS2017 under C# WindowsForm it will create the project with the target framework. 

    For VS2005 - 2.0

    For VS2008 - 3.5

    For VS2010 - 4.0 

    For VS2012  - 4.5

    For VS2013 - 4.5.1 

    For VS2015 -  4.6 

    For VS2017 - ? (whether its 4.6 or 4.6.1 or 4.6.2?)

    I Need this information for converting the existing VS2015 csproject file to VS2017 RC manually.

  • Hi Adhik7,

    It's ok for us to select each of them in the csproject file , 4.6 , 4.6.1 or 4.6.2, you even don't have to change it.  They will all work well in VS 2017 RC.

    Best regards,

    Fletcher
