Moving Ahead of Technology.

Remember that Windows Service I wrote not long ago? Well, today it was time to install it into actual testing environment. That did not work exactly as expected. The first thing I get when trying to run the setup project was this error message

Did not take long to find out that the service was developed in VS.NET 2008 and required .NET Framework 3.5 to run. Now, what do you think would take longer in a large company, to rebuild the application in the previous version of VS.NET or obtaining the permission to install .NET Framework on a server? That's what I did ...

Therefore, moving fast and using the 'latest tools' might actually get you into some trouble...
