A few people have asked whether SciChart supports .NET4.6 and Visual Studio 2015 and Windows 10.

SciChart v3.4.2

SciChart v3.4.2 is compiled as .NET4.0 only, however, .NET 4.0 assemblies are compatible with applications that run under .NET4.0, .NET4.5, .NET4.5.1, .NET4.5.2 and .NET4.6.

SciChart v3.4.2 is fully compatible with Visual Studio 2015 and we have tested it on Windows 10. You can include SciChart v3.4.2 in VS2015 / .NET4.6 apps with no changes.


That shiny NuGet Package Manager in VS2015


Hello .NET4.6 World! Using SciChart v3.4.2 and VS2015

SciChart v3.4.3 Nightly Build 6817

We have hacked modified our Nightly Build to output the following targets for SciChart v3.4.3 and above.

  • .NET4.0, Release, AnyCPU
  • .NET 4.5, Release, AnyCPU (Available after v3.4.3.6817)
  • .NET 4.6, Release, AnyCPU (Available after v3.4.3.6817)

If you download v3.4.3.6817 (or later) via our NuGet Feed you should be able to see the following packages.


You can verify the MSIL version for each using the excellent JetBrains dotPeek (we did! It tells you more than the Visual Studio properties window, that’s for sure). Just don’t decompile all our source codez or we’ll be upset 😉


In the official releases we will also start shipping .NET4.0, 4.5, 4.6 with our installer, but for now the only way to get other framework versions is via NuGet.

Let us know your feedback!

Best regards,
