.NET compatible with Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I still didn't see any convincing answer in this world :)

    Will Windows 7 still support .NET 1.1 development?

  • There are numerous threads indicating that the .NET Framework v1.1 can be installed in Windows 7. Here is one found in a quick MSDN search:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/netfxsetup/thread/a96a09e1-eb5c-4938-b854-8004dcf9b496

    See answer in the thread above.

    That said, it does *not* imply that early Visual Studio .NET 2003 will install and work correctly on Windows 7. The combination is not officially supported (and, I do not recommend it), but you can try it.

  • Hi ShankarRaj,

    Thank you for your post in MSDN forum!

     

    Some clarification with you

    Which version of Visual Studio did you develop with?

     

    As your concern, I would provide some information.

    1, .NET Framework 1.1 can be installed on Windows 7.

    You could refer link as follows.

    If you develop your application with Visual Studio 2008, I would provide some suggestions with you.

    1, Visual Studio 2008 multi-targeting support only works with .NET 2.0, .NET 3.0, and .NET 3.5 – and not against older versions of the framework.

    The reason for this is that there were significant CLR engine changes between .NET 1.X and 2.X that make debugging very difficult to support.

    So it is definitely possible to continue targeting .NET 1.1 projects using Visual Studio 2003 on the same machine as Visual Studio 2008.

  • Hi,

    The following page lists the system requirements for .NET Framework versions.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8z6watww.aspx

    I was suprised to see that Windows 7 Starter does not support .NET Framework. I realize that this is a stripped down version of Windows 7 but, that's the version that is on a lot of the new netbook computers that have been coming out recently.

    If .NET Framework is so important to Microsoft why wouldn't they support it in Windows 7 Starter.
