  • Hi Priya13,

    Thanks for your post!

    Backward compatibility means that an application developed for a particular version of a platform will run on later versions of that platform.

    By default, an application runs on the version of the .NET Framework that it was built for. If that version is not present and the application configuration file does not define supported versions, a .NET Framework initialization error may occur. In this case, the attempt to run the application will fail.

    To define the specific versions on which your application runs, add one or more <supportedRuntime> elements to your application's configuration file. Each <supportedRuntime> element lists a supported version of the runtime, with the first specifying the most preferred version and the last specifying the least preferred version

    For more information, you can refer to
