Will create compatibility issues while using Webview2 version 116 and CEF version 102 in application?

James J 586 Reputation points

In 32-bit applications, we are using Chromium Embedded Framework (fixed version 102) and Webview2 (fixed version 98) to launch the HTML and JS content. We are planning to upgrade the webview2 version from 98 to 116 and retain the CEF 102 version. Will it create any compatibility issues if we launch CEF 98 and Webview2 116 in parallel in the application?

    Hi @James J,

    There hasn't been incompatibility report AFAIK. Since you managed to run CEF and WebView2 together, it is expected that you can run them again with a higher version of WebView2. Of course, it is recommended to only use WebView2/CEF for consistency.
