Wondering if anyone has tried to recompile a prism 4 wpf app to .net 4.5 ?

and the issues encountered ?

 

Looking to taking advantage of improvements to wpf and of course features such as await/async

 

thanks

p/s I'm sure this has been covered before but surprisingly search did not return any relevant results

Hi,

So far, I have compiled all the desktop projects in the Prism 4.1 library targeting the .Net Framework 4.5, without experiencing any issues, after doing this I run all desktop tests successfully. Also, I referenced these compiled assemblies in a couple of the Quickstarts and the StockTraderRI and run the applications without finding any problems. In other words, I haven't experience any issues with this.

Best regards,
