Thread:  .Net upgrade


ECline (User)   Posted on: 13-Feb-2019 00:03:16.
We currently run .Net version 4.0 and use LLBL v3.5.

We are updating our .NET to 4.7.2 and looking to upgrade our LLBL to v4.2

Will LLBL v4.2 be able to run with .NET 4.7.2?

Thanks for your help

Yes, as 4.7.2 is an in-place upgrade of .NET 4 without breaking changes (in areas we use) so it should be OK. It doesn't offer code generation for 4.7.2 (so the csproj files have e.g. 4.5.2 as .net version) so you have to change that in visual studio/rider after you've loaded the csproj files.

Not sure why you'd want to upgrade to 4.2 btw, it doesn't get any patches anymore. Latest version is v5.5 which has many more features and is quite a lot faster than 4.2

5.5 will have generated code for 4.7.2, correct

Still the question remains why you'd want to upgrade to 4.2. You have to upgrade anyway, why not to the latest version?

We had 4.2 available, so I needed a reason for the boss for going to 5.5. This reason accomplished that. We are in the process of going 5.5 now!
