Compiler executable csc.exe cannot be found

Hello everyone...
I am new to this community so m sorry if this is not the place for this post...

I uploaded my site (built in 3.5 framework) to the server which does not have 3.5 but 2.0.

I uploaded the System.Core.dll file in the bin folder of the wwwroot/ folder. but doesn't help either...

Now when i access my home page, I get this erro saying 'Compiler executable file csc.exe cannot be found.'

Stack trace:

[InvalidOperationException: Compiler executable file csc.exe cannot be found.]

You cannot just upload core Framework Libraries like this and expect the web server to use them.

The web server you are hosting your web application on must support the 3.5 Framework since your application has been developed for the 3.5 framework. It will not work otherwise.

If your application does not use any features provided in the 3.5 Framework, consider changing your web application to target the 2.0 Framework instead.

Do you have .Net framework SDK installed on your machine where you are testing/designed your application ..?
