Framework selection in Visual Studio newer than 4.6.1

Post by ArneOrtlinghaus »

Currently it is possible to select the "Target framework moniker" until version 4.6.1. It seems to be interesting to for us to select newer versions, at least 4.6.2.
Can this be made possible or are there technical reasons that do not allow this?
Thanks
Arne

Looking more exactly, I think I have understood that this is the minimum requirement of the framework and not the framework running the application. Is this true?

When trying to manipulate the version in the projects file and recompile the project Visual Studio told me to download a "Microsoft.net framework developer pack. Now the additional versions are visible when editing the properties.

Arne,
This is what I expected, We are using a VS API call to list the available frameworks. I think it finds these in the Registry.
You could also have run VS Installer and choose the packs from the "Individual Components" tab in the installer.
