Net 2 and VS2003

P: n/a
I need the new "Port" functionality of Net Framework 2 to complete a project
that is being produced using VS2003 and C#. If I download the release version
will this cause problems with VS2003, and my earlier C# projects?

no. they can live along side each other peacefully, but if you open a
vs2003 project in vs2005, it will convert the .sln and .csproj files to
the new format.

but by default, the vs2003 solutions will open in vs2003 and the vs2005
projects will open in vs2005.

Hi,
A much better approach is to use one of the many classes that implement
serial port use, go to www.opennetcf.org and download it from there, you
will even get the source code for it !

cheers,

But if Net 2 is about to give me the classes to handle serial ports anyway,
why would it not be better to use them?

By the way, I've had a quick look at the site you suggested and it seems to
be only for Compact software. Is there a similar site that deals with
full-blown Win2k OS.

Hi,

DO a search in google you will find a few of them.

IIRC the opennetcf is usable in the desktop, all you have to do is change
the dllimport to one used in the desktop.

otherwise try http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/is...netserialcomm/

cheers,

Hi,

That depends of you, if you have all your project in 1.1 and the only thing
you are missing is the serial comm maybe it's better to just use one of the
already done components.

IF you are planing in upgrade to 2.0 soon or you can do it right now then
you can do the upgrade.

The thing is that there are solutions in place using 1.1

cheers,
