When will Azure HPC scheduler accept .Net 4? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, there's currently a restriction on running only .net 3.5 code on Azure hpc workers. When will this be lifted in favour of .Net 4?

  • .Net 4 applicatoin should run on worker role. There is nothing to stop you from running a .net 4 applicatoin as a hpc task. If you are running a HPC SOA service, it's also possible to redirect the framework to 4.0.

  • Hello Yidingz, Don

    When i tried using a SOA service in .net 4.0, I got the below error.

    Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Resources\directory\dd45f9b60b2740b7861cb3bbee835bf4.ComputeNode.Microsoft.Hpc.Azure.LocalStorage.Application\HelloWorld\2012-10-19T103259.0000000Z\HelloWorldAzure.dll' or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.

    Is .NET 4.0 currently supported?

    Thanks!

  • Yes, you can use .net 4.0. Just update HpcServicehost.exe.config and force loading .net 4.0.
