Windows Version Compatibility?

Posted 25 October 2012 - 06:05 AM

Hi Guys,

Let's to the point

I have developed program with Visual Studio 2008, C# Language
I didn't use custom library, user control, etc
I used Excel Automation only
I use Windows 7 and .NET framework 4.0 (but in program properties setting, the framework target is version 3.5)

After I tested and build the program,
I copied the .exe file together with other files in debug folder to other computer.

it works on computer with Windows 7 and Windows Vista (after I installed .NET Framework 3.5 on the computer)
but unfortunately it didn't work in Windows XP (although I had installed .NET Framework 3.5 on the computer)

Can anybody give me some clue, please...
Thank

"It didn't work" could mean a thousand things.
Was there an error message?

It could have been as simple as a hardcoded path that didn't exist. Or registry permissions. Or... Or.... Or...

My suggestion is to install VMware on your development machine, then build a virtual XP box. You can then debug directly into that virtual machine and get all the feedback you would see as if it were in your host Win7 O.S.
