What version of the .NET framework is used in VS2012, 2013 and 2015? If we compile against a newer version than we use at runtime we could link against methods/overloads which do not exist under the older framework and crash at runtime under the older VS versions.

We require .NET 4.6 installed in our setup. It's safe to use either 4.5.2 or 4.6 as the target framework version.

Ok, I'm closing this since there's no actionable item for the XVS team.

We are requiring .NET 4.6 on install on all platforms (VS2013+), so it's safe to say that all projects should target 4.6 at a minimum.
