3.5 Framework

P: n/a
Hi there,

I recently built a relatively simple application in VB.net using
VS Studio 2008(the front end is attached to an Access database).
Everything seems to run smoothly on my machine and on any other
machine that has the .net 3.5 framework installed, but on any machines
running .net 2.0 or 1.1 I get an error message stating "Could not load
file or assembly 'System.Data.DataSetExtensions, Version=2.0.0.0" I'm
using the dataset object to load the database records so I'm assuming
the problem is related to this.

OK, so as a .net newbie, here is my question - do machines running
applications developed in .net 3.5 HAVE to have the 3.5 framework
installed? TIA.

When you develop an application in .NET Framework 2.0 you better have .NET
Framework 2.0 installed.
Same goes for 3.5 or 4.0 for 10.6

Thanks ITE - just to clarify - it's necessary to install 3.5 on the
USER'S machines as well, correct?(obviously the framework has to be on
the machine I developed the application on).

Yes, if you are using .NET 3.5 functionality.

This raises an interesting question in my mind. Where can we find out what
the differences are between various versions of .NET. I've tried a Google
seach and there's a whole load on what it does, but I can't find a detail
version difference table anywhere.

And also, since I have all versions loaded on my PC, how can I tell which
version VB.Net is using, and change it if needed?
