    Temporarily installing .NET 1.1 (.NET)

    I have an OS that has VS .NET 2002 installed, so it has .NET Framework 1.0.

    Can I install .NET FRamework 1.1, for several months use a particualar app requiring 1.1, then uninstall 1.1 without affecting the the current VS .NET 2002 installation?

    Re: Temporarily installing .NET 1.1 (.NET)

    Actually, as I recall Visual Studio .NET (2002) uses .NET 1.0. Whereas Visual Stuio .NET 2003 uses .NET 1.1.

    Howard, I *think* you can do this, but I can't guarantee. It's been a few years since I've worked with VS 2002.

    Sicne VS 2002 worked prior to installing .NET 1.1, you *should* be able to install 1.1 and then later uninstall.

    Re: Temporarily installing .NET 1.1 (.NET)

    Not wishing to disagree but my understanding is you must not uninstall .NET 1.0. Visual Studio.NET 2002 depends on the .NET 1.0 framework and it will not work with .NET 1.1. If you want to compile .NET 1.1 assemblies, you need to update to Visual Studio.NET 2003. There is no way to make VS.NET 2002 use .NET 1.1.

    My only advice to Howard then is to have a go and report back

    Re: Temporarily installing .NET 1.1 (.NET)

    Jezza - you are correct. You can only use Visual Studio 2002 to compile .NET 1.0 applications. We are in complete agreement there. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    As I understand Howard's question, I think he was just asking about installing the .NET 1.1 Framework for an existing completed application - not an application that would need to be modified and recompiled using VS2002. In that case, simply installing the 1.1 Framework should not affect anything involving the 1.0 Framework or VS 2002.

    Howard - is that correct?

    Yes.

    I do have VS .NET 2003 in another OS on the same PC, but I do not feel like replacing 2002 with 2003.

    I just need .NET 1.1 Framework to run 1 AV app for a year.

    Howard

    You come up with some very interesting ideas with the use of these various options, have you ever thought of using Virtual PC 2004/7 or some type of VMWare to test the various mixes of the anti-virus s/w or this type of conundrum. I tend to do it for work when it is very specific for certain applications we mix and match. Just an idea and VPC 2004 is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>

    Re: Temporarily installing .NET 1.1 (.NET)

    I note from Microsoft Virtual PC 2004:

    "... you can now download Virtual PC 2004 absolutely free. Microsoft will also offer the free download of Virtual PC 2007, with support for Windows Vista, available in 2007."

    I wonder if "free download" also means free to use in this context?

    Re: Temporarily installing .NET 1.1 (.NET)

    Yes, I've thought about it.

    But, I do not believe in putting in extra layers of software.
    For short term testing, I create an image backup of the drive(s) to be changed, install the software to be tested,
    play with it, then restore the drives to their origial state.

    The gotchya is that you need a separate license for the OS in each real/virtual PC.
    At least, that's how the licenses used to read.
