I have downloaded both versions of the sample .NET Framework version detection code (described here and here), and I am trying to compile it to test it out on my system. However, I am running into issues trying to create a Visual Studio project that will correctly build the sample code. What do I need to do to get this sample code to compile on my system?
You should be able to use the following steps to create a project and compile the sample .NET Framework detection code using either Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio 2008:
Note - while testing the above steps, I noticed that the sample code was generating several warnings during the build process. I fixed these and posted updated versions of both samples that will build by default without any warnings.
