- The target frameworks added by this update to Microsoft Visual Studio for projects to use are ".NET Framework 4.0.3" and ".NET Framework 4.0.3 Client Profile."
- After you apply Multi-Targeting Pack for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta to Microsoft Visual Studio, you can build new projects that use the .NET Framework 4.0.3.
Note You can build new projects that use the features that are introduced in the .NET Framework 4.0.1, .NET Framework 4.02, and .NET Framework 4.0.3 runtimes.
- Multi-Targeting Pack for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta is cumulative. For example, it includes all the related files from Multi-Targeting Packs for the .NET Framework 4.0.1 and the .NET Framework 4.0.2. However, Multi-Targeting Pack for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta exposes only .NET Framework 4.0.3 targets. For example, this update exposes only the .NET Framework 4.0.3 targeting, and this update does not install the targeting for the .NET Framework 4.0.1 or the .NET Framework 4.0.2.
The targeting for the .NET Framework 4.0.1 and the .NET Framework 4.0.2 can independently coexist side-by-side with the targeting of the .NET Framework 4.0.3. However, each version has to be installed by its own installation package.
- When you open a project that uses the .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta on a computer that is running Microsoft Visual Studio, you receive the following error message if the corresponding multi-targeting pack is not installed: Project Target framework Not Installed
This error message indicates that the required multi-targeting pack is not installed. To resolve this issue, install the required multi-targeting pack that is described in the "Update Information" section.
