How to get .NET Framework 4.7.2 SDK to show in Target Framework list in VS2010 (Visual Basic)

Rob Birney 21 Reputation points

I have installed the .NET Framework 4.7.2 SDK onto my development machine successfully (I can see the 4.7.2 Targeting Pack and the ENU version in the Programs and Features list).

When I try to update Target Framework in my VS2010 Visual Basic project, I do not see 4.7.2 having been added to the list (It still shows .NET Framework 4 as the most up to date option).

How can I get 4.7.2 to show in this list so that I can select it?

An object-oriented programming language developed by Microsoft that is implemented on the .NET Framework. Previously known as Visual Basic .NET.

    Hi @Rob Birney ,
    To target .NET Framework 4.7.2, you need a newer version of Visual Studio. VS 2010 cannot "see" or use .NET Framework 4.7.2.
    VS2019 or VS2022 is recommended.
    Best Regards.
