View Full Version : Net Framework 2.0 support

12-15-2004, 08:16 AM
What is the plan to support Net Framework 2.0? Will it be the new release or a free update for IS10.5?
We consider upgrading from IS8.02 and would like to know if another paid upgrade will be required soon.

InstallShield will definitely support .NET 2.0 after it has been released. As for whether it will require a paid upgrade, that will depend on how and when we release the support. As much as I'd love to tell you to upgrade now, I think the only way .NET 2.0 support will make its way into existing products (in a click this, check that, then build fashion) is through specific hotfixes or service packs, or if we release it as a prerequisite. There may be other workarounds that will enable the web-download version to support it even in older versions.

If a prerequisite set for installing .NET is something you (or anyone) would like to see, that may be a good item for submitting feedback (http://www.installshield.com/feedback/) on.
