I looked at the process for installing support for NETMF 4.3 on my computer. The process directs me to install the community edition of VS2013 first. However, I currently have a full copy of VS2010 installed on my system. I had hoped to use VS2010 to develop NETMF projects.
Must one absolutely use some version of VS2013 with NETMF 4.3, or can one still use VS2010 which I currently have?
When I first looked at NETMF development, I saw I could use VS2010 (the full version) for development. But I got caught up in other projects. Now that I’ve started NETMF, I want to use my familiar old tool, but it looks like it might be difficult or impossible to do that.
Any comments or ideas? I can get the community, or even the full VS2013 installation, but I was hoping to avoid that.
As a retired software engineer, I cannot tell you how many different versions of Visual Studio I have gone through in my career. When I retired two years ago, I still had VS2005, VS2008, and VS2010 on my system at work. And at home, I had VS2008 and VS2010. I guess that’s why MS came out with the VS Version Selector application.
I just wanted to be able to use what I had without installing yet another version of VS. After all, VS2010 worked at one time with NETMF. But now I have VS2013 Community Edition, yahoo!
Fortunately I have my own version control. I have always detested version control built into the compiler.
