Support for C# 2.0?

We are interested in buying Aspose.pdf, Aspose.pdf.kit and Aspose.pdf.form, in order to use them in a project we are developing.
The only issue we have now is the fact that the project is being developed in c# 2.0, and it seems that even the setup for these components will not run unless you have the .net framework 1.1.
My question is: is the framework 2.0 supported? If not, are there plans to be?

Thanks in advance!

Dear sebastiaop,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

I have tested Aspose.Pdf in .NET 2.0 and have not found any error. Some of our customers are now using Aspose.Pdf in .Net 2.0. We will soon test other product in .Net 2.0.

The current product can’t be installed in .Net 2.0. You can download the hotfix and use it directly. I will provide a installer for .Net 2.0 later.

Thank you very much for the quick answer.
I’m glad to know that there are no problems using your components in .net 2.0. This is, for sure, a decisive point in our buying decision.
I will download the hotfix for the components I need, and test them in our .net 2.0 environmnet.
Again, thank you very much!

hi, i downloaded and tried out your hotfix and i get a strange error message! im using .net 2.0 beta 1 and this is the code and exception details, if you know how to fix it that would be great. we are currently evaluating whether to use your component, or the component available from cete.

Dear Gareth,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

It seems this error is caused by obfuscator. I will check this problem and reply to you soon.
