Install .NET Framework SDK 1.1



I'm using Visual Studio .NET 2002 and
..NET Framework SDK 1.0

To upgrade to .NET Framework SDK 1.1
1) Install .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable first
2) Install .NET Framework 1.1 SDK

1) Does .NET Framework 1.1 install over 1.0
2) If it does install over 1.0 does it upgrade Visual
Studio .NET 2002 to Visual Studio .NET 2003

Hi John,

You can install both v1.0 and v1.1 of the .NET Framework on the same machine
and they will live in harmony.

The short answer regarding Visual Studio .NET (2002) is that it can only
develop programs that target v1.0 regardless of what versions of the
framework are on the development machine. Installing v1.1 of the .NET
Framework on the machine will not upgrade VS.NET you need to get VS.NET 2003

I imagine there is some way that you could build your source from the
command line to target v1.1 if you have the SDK, but only VS.NET 2003 offers
'inline' support with debugging, etc.

You can read more about managing v1.0 / v1.1 compatibility here:



Thanks John
That's what I thought. I don't know who would develop
using the SDK only without the Visual Studio IDE and all
that it offers.

The options are endless... you can develope and compile in VS.NET 2002 and
force the app to run on 1.1 (supportedRuntime).

By default an application built on 1.0 will run on 1.0 (if installed on the
client machine). If 1.0 is not installed, it will attempt to run on 1.1, but
there may be compatibility issues depending on your application.

You can also force the application to look for a specific version at startup
(requiredRuntime). If that version's not found it throws a runtime

Everything's configurable!
