We have some deployments running in older DotNet Frameworks (pre-4.5), as well as other deployments with newer DotNet Framework versions. Although not always having been the case, all of our servers now have newer versions of DotNet Framework installed, including those running applications completely written in older Frameworks.
My question is: Considering the removal of support for pre-4.5 Frameworks as of the 22.214.171.124 Agent, are our servers that are running the pre-4.5 Framework applications restricted to using the DotNet Agent 126.96.36.199 or previous (because the applications are running older frameworks), or would they be free to use the latest DotNet Agents (because the latest DotNet Frameworks are installed on the machine)? Or is this question more complicated than a simple answer would allow?
I realize that the original statement on this posted a year ago says:
Apps compiled for CLR2 but running on .NET Framework 4.5 may run into issues.
But after a year, I’m hoping that perhaps the “may run into issues” has been proven to be a conservative statement, with little-to-no issues actually occurring.
