.Net Version 4.7 support strategy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    The latest .Net Version 4.7 redistributable package does not install on a Windows 10 version older than 1607. That includes Windows 10 LTS 2015.

    I would like to know the strategy of MS regarding the support of newer .Net version on older Windows 10 versions.

    We want our .Net applications, using .Net 4.7 or later, to execute on all Windows 10 Versions.

    Best Regards

    Thank you for posting here.

    Since the forum discuss general issue about developing software on desktop. I think your issue is not related to development.

    I will move the case to off-topic forum.
