  • Yes you can.

    You may see that some import statements are no longer needed e.g. Visual Studio 2015 and higher will show some code that appears grey out, hover over it and a suggestion will typically show that grey code can be removed. Lower versions of Visual Studio may not show the grey code, in the end no harm no foul.

    Edit: If this is for external clients make sure they have that version of the Framework installed.
