Code Language and .NET Framework Selection

Compilation and application building options govern how your application is compiled. 

Code Language

Select the programming language for code created by Iron Speed Designer.

Note: You can change your application’s code language after it has been created.  However, any modifications you make to the source code files will not be migrated to the updated application; you must port any code customizations by hand after switching code languages.

.NET Framework

Iron Speed Designer builds application targeting the following .NET Frameworks: 3.5, 4.0, 4.5. In some cases, the .NET Framework version you select automatically designates the compiler you must use to compile your application.

Note: Applications are not backward compatible.  For example, once you have created an application using .NET Framework 4.5, you will not be able to switch to .NET Framework 4.0.

.NET Framework 4.0 caveats

You must install the .NET Framework 4.0 to use these features in your application.  The full .NET Framework 4.0 can be downloaded from:

.NET Framework 4.0

Compile your application for .NET Framework 4.0.  This is compatible with Visual Studio 2010, Visual Studio 2012, Visual Studio 2013.

.NET Framework 4.5

Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

Iron Speed Designer does not require you to use any particular integrated development environment, such as Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.

Asp .NET Development Server

Iron Speed Designer can run your application using either ASP.NET Development Server or the Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). ASP.NET Development Server is used as a a generic term in Iron Speed Desiner, referring to the original ASP.NET Development Server, called Cassini, or to its replacement IIS Express in Framework 4.5.
