I am using VB.net 2008 and .net 2.0 framework. After I modified a class library in development environment, I build a particular class library in visual studio 2008 and dll file get generated in the bin directory.
I copied this dll file to the bin directory in production environment. But I got the following error. The .net framework in production is running ver 2.0. Please help. Thanks a lot.
