One Application, Multiple Versions of the .Net Compact Framework? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I may be tasked with developing an application for a client that has two similar mobile devices to deploy on.  One supports the .Net Compact Framework v1.0, and the other supports v2.0.  Is it possible to do one application but deploy it to both devices?  My initial thought is yes, but I wanted to check for sure.  Thanks!

    All .NET Frameworks are backwards compatible which means that any application developed using a lower version of .NET Framework should be able to run properly on a higher version of the Framework. As such, if you develop your app in 1.0 or 1.1 it should work fine on a device that has .NET Framework 2.0 installed on it. You can also refer the MSDN article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9w519wzk.aspx to target a specific .NET version for your application.

  • the device that supports .net fw 2.0, also supports 1.1. put 1.1 on both devices and do your app for .net fw 1.1
