I have a wpf application running SciChart and my client is very satisfied with it. This is a application that they want to use on oil installations but their main problem at the moment is that those machines run on Windows XP. They tried upgrading one machine to running .NET 4.0 and ended up having to reinstall the whole thing.
Do you have a version that runs on CLR 2? At this point I need to be able to run it on clr 2 or further development on it will be shut down until they upgrade windows versions at the installations and they don’t have a date on that yet 🙁
There should be no problem running SciChart on WindowsXP, however you will need .NET4.0 installed. I’m afraid there is no way we can downgrade to .NET2.0, it would require a complete re-write of the control. Also it would require a complete re-write of your app which depends on many WPF controls (Telerik etc)
Try to find out why .NET4.0 is causing the system to crash. What other dependencies are there that are preventing this from occurring?
An alternative may be to develop the application as a silverlight application, which requires a very lightweight plugin and can be run in a browser and does not require that the .NET framework is updated. Our earliest Silverlight version we support is 4. Silverlight 5 is preferable. Silverlight applications can be deployed locally as well as run via the web.
Perhaps this is a solution? Direct your client to http://www.scichart.com/demo and see if they can see the silverlight demonstration app (Clicking on “Demo App”). If they can see that on an XP machine, at least you know this is possible!
