Hi Everyone,

I have an old application which is deployed using ClickOnce.

Historically the application has worked fine (for example on Windows XP), however now that I am using Windows 7 (x64) the application is not working 100%. Whilst I can view information in the application I am unable to print said information (something that I was definitely able to do in the past when using it with Windows XP).

I have .NET 4.5 installed on my Windows 7 computer, however I suspect that the application requires an earlier version of .NET.

My question is twofold. Firstly is there any way of determining which version of .NET a ClickOnce application was originally configured to use? Secondly (assuming that my first question can be answered in the affirmative) is it possible to specify to a ClickOnce application (e.g.: in a manifest file) what version of .NET should be used.

Any assistance here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

If it required an older .net framework, it wouldn't have run at all. sound like it using some xp dll that is not in windows 7. Check your event log, they might have something telling you why printing is not working.
