RhinoCommon compatible with .NET core framework

Hi there,

I am starting a new project. Just wanted to know whether RhinoCommon is compatible with .NET Core framework or not ?

thanks in advance.

Hi @maulik.khandwala,

Why is this important?

RhinoCommon is build against .NET Framework 4.5. RhinoCommon plug-ins should do the same.

So it is not a good idea to use .Net 4.7.2 ?
And .Net Core will not work at all?

Rhino loads the .NET framework into it’s process and uses that to execute .NET code.

The version of the .NET framework that Rhino loads is the most recent 4.x version installed on a computer. The Rhino 6 installer makes sure that at least .NET 4.5 is installed on the user’s computer. You can use 4.7.2 features, but then you will need to make sure that 4.7.2 is installed on the user’s computer.


thanks @stevebaer! good to know. maybe add this info here:
