.net v4.5 is not visible under VS 2015 Enterprise (full version) RRS feed

  • Question

  • To All,

    I'm using VS Enterprise 2015 (full version activated) in Windows 8.1 pro OS. I have to use .net fw v4.5 in my project but it's not visible in the VS selection list.

    But when i checked in the system programm files, it's (v4.5) listed/:

    How can i fix this? (make the .net frame work visible in the Visual Studio)?

    Thank you

  • Hi FF_DAPI,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    You machine OS is Windows 8.1, .NET Framework is not able on it.

    NET Framework 4.5 Supported OSs according to Microsoft
    • Windows Vista SP2
    • Windows 7
    • Windows 8 (included with OS)
    • Windows Server 2008 SP2/R2
    • Windows Server 2012 (included with OS)
    • Windows 10

    You may refer to the OS Compatibility for various .NET Framework versions:

    So you may back up all your important files and update you OS to Windows 10 or use another machine which OS support .NET Framework 4.5 for your program development.

    Best Regards,

    Wen Xu
