Hello,

I have a few newbie questions on the WCSF.
Is it possible to use the WCSF in VS 2008 to create an application and still target .Net 2.0 exclusively?
I would like to use the WCSF in VS 2008 and publish the web site to a hosting provider who only supports ASP.Net 2.0.
If so, If I use the WCSF to build a web site and then set the build target to 2.0, will I still be able to use all the functionality of WCSF? Or does the target framework of the web application not affect the WCSF?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Donal.

WCSF uses the recent release of the Ajax Control Toolkit for VS2008.
As a result of this, there is a hard dependency on .NET 3.5.

You can still use WCSF October 2007 on VS2005 and target .NET2.0. Most of the functionality is available inthe October release, but not everything.

Michael,

Thanks, that has answered my question.
I guess I will have to wait until they support .Net 3.5.

Cheers,
Donal.
