Support for VS Express

Nov 25, 2011 at 7:05 AM

Can anyone confirm if there are any restrictions or extra steps (manually load addins)  that need to be taken in order to use MEF if the developer is using Visual Studio 2010 Express?

Whilst I code my host application in the full VS (Pro) I am keen not to alienate any plugin developers for my app if they happen to want to use the express edition.

Hi Julian,

MEF availability depends on the presence of the .NET Framework; as long as a developer can target .NET they can target MEF I believe.
