Possible to switch Build between frameworks? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1071952197 posted

    I have a site locally on my machine that was originally built with 2.0 Framework.  I have Visual Studio 2010.  Is it possible to test this site using the 4.0 Framework and if it looks like somethings are a miss going up to 4.0 can I revert back to 2.0?

    Sorry if this questions seems stupid.

    TIA

    In most cases, you can switch back to 2.0 as long as you use the original Web.config.  The main problem you might see is if you start trying to add 4.0 references to your site and then try to move that back to 2.0.

    Thanks Matt, I'll just copy the website to another directory and make the changes in that  and see what happens.  That way if my tests goes awry, I still have the good copy using 2.0 framework.
