Supported .NET Framework for RealDWG 2014

Can I target the .NET Framework 3.5 in a Visual Studio project with a reference to RealDWG 2014 (acdbmgd.dll)?


I have ADN support but thought I may get a quicker answer here.  I have a RealDWG project targeting FW 4.0 but am getting "External Component has thrown an exception" errors, and I have a feeling that some of my other modules, compiled against FW 2.0 may be the cause.  when I've attempted to change my project from 4.0 to 3.5, I get nothing but errors showing up in VS.

Sorry, the application using RealDWG 2014 will need to target .Net framework 4.0


Visual studio will not let the project compile if it targets 3.5 as the RealDWG assembly that it is referencing requires 4.0
