You can't really say this technical thing to an end-user, can you ?

That's exactly what happens in practice. You double-click on the app, and it fails with a stupid messagebox. No way to fix it.

Now if your words are for developers, you simply expect them to have BOTH run-times installed, tested, and upgrading problems fixed before starting the distribution. This is not exactly what you read in MS marketing brochures when they claim great productivity gains...

That's not exactly what I thought about next gen dev platform. I thought the existing CLR would try to figure out what was missing, start a wizard, and download missing stuff. Automatically, no need of any additional line of code here, since at compile-time you have already told the compiler which versions of assemblies to compile and link against.

In addition, the fact that new regular (one per quarter) .NET run-time comes with new features makes you, the developer, feel like using them. But, and here is the trouble, you cannot really expect the end user to have the same run-time than you, otherwise it requires not only the end user to more or less be an MSDN addict and start downloading all possible updates whenever possible, but the user may be asked to do it without any visible value for it. When you see the sizes of redistribuables (main, and additional), that's really an issue.

Final point, since the .NET run-time is often updated (MS site promotes always the latest, and removes access to older stuff, an amazing habit you don't mention) it's not a point to have the .NET run-time available by default on coming OSes.





How low can you go ?
