    .net 3.5 on Saga?

    Should there be any issues on installing the .net 3.5 CAB on the Saga. I downloaded a freeware weather app and it instantly failed and said it wasn't an updated .net framework. A search on threads found it easily enough on pointed to Hockey's apps page. Just wondering (a little paranoid) why such a new phone wasn't released with 3.5?

    I have 3.5. Works beautifully. I also have the regedit done to force 3.5. I also have a program netcfg (I can host or link later when I get home) which forces 3.5, and you can also pick and choose programs (manually) to force 2.0 or 3.5 too. Makes the phone run better and supposedly more stable.

    Should be one of the first things you do!

    Why wouldn't you let the programs figure out which framework they need and use it, if it has both installed?

    Bob, or any one else... can you please tell me a little more about this? I need to install 3.5. Is there something else I need to do to make this work on the SAGA?


    Thanks,
    Jon

    Nope. You don't need to do anything other than install it. I have found no need need to tweak anything or alter any registry settings or use that previously referenced program to force specific programs to a specific framework. I've seen no issues, no problems, no slowdowns, etc. Just install it and run your programs and they'll use what they need. Methinks we (as in the general 'we') try to tweak too much.

    If you want to debate the GPS stuff, we can start a thread for that and I'll be happy to participate.

    I'll guess you were going for funny and just failed miserably.

    I don't think it's one of the first things you have to do. An ap will tell you if it needs the updated framework. If it does, install is simple and easy, just like any other cab file. Also no harm in going ahead and putting it on. At least on desktop and from experience on phone as well, versions are made to co-exist with each other and nto cause problems. I have rarely seen a .net conflict problem. Seens lots of bad .net programming <G>
