Caution note Caution

This refers to custom web apps only: to deploy a web app to the production environment, besides the above requirements you also need to have Internet Information Services (IIS) installed on a machine where your web app will be deployed. These services are required to assign your custom application to the AppPool supporting .NET 4.0: IIS Server Manager is used to add your custom web app to the AppPool.

Note Note

Refers to the custom app's operation and to a machine where Visual Studio is installed: .NET 4.0 or higher needs to be installed on a machine where your custom app will be launched by a developer. Both .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio are required on a machine where your custom app will be developed.
