    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,
