.NET 4.6.1 supports Windows server 2008 SP2 (32bit)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a piece of c# code that downloads a zip file from an external web server using Webclient object. It works perfectly fine in my local system where I have  .NET Framework 4.6.1 (VS2015 Pro), Windows 7 Enterprise OS, 64 bit OS.  I received an error "The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send."  when I run the same piece of code on the server where Windows Server 2008 SP2, 32 bit OS, .NET Framework 4.6.1 is installed. In my local system, the application is pointing to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.6.1" for the DLL's and in the server I did not find this path after i installed .NET 4.6.1 rather i saw from the registry the installed path is "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319".

    So, is .NET 4.6.1 supports Windows server 2008 SP2 (32bit)? if yes where will be the installed path? and why the application do not work?
