1 min read

Basically with and later versions we ship both .NET framework 2.0 compatible and .NET framework 3.5 compatible syncfusion assemblies. During the installation, we target the .NET framework 2.0 assemblies for vs2005 and .NET framework3.5 assemblies for vs2008.

Use the below points to use 2.0 framework for VS 2008:


1. Open the Multi Target Manager from the dashboard. (only for versions and later)2. Choose 2.0 framework and press OK. Click OK once the operation completed succesfully.3. Open VS 2008 and create a project and add the reference to your project.4. Check the properties window so that the reference points to 2.0 framework version. (Hint: 6.302.0.30 for version Compile and run the project.If still the project refers to 3.5 assemblies follow the below points:1. Please remove the 3.5 syncfusion assemblies from the following reference assemblies folder. C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5 C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\PublicAssemblies C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies 2. Please ensure that only 2.0 assemblies are in the GAC (c:\windows\assembly) and also in publicassemblies (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\PublicAssemblies)If its not there please copy it manually from precompiled assemblies folder (C:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\precompiledassemblies\ \2.0). 3. Now add the references to the project and check the properties window for 2.0 framework version. 4. Compile and run the project.
