Any plans to upgrade to Unreal Build Tools to latest version of .Net 4.7.*?


Why are we using .Net 4.6.1 for Unreal Build tools? It is not longer supported by Microsoft and all modern windows builds have .Net 4.7.1 pre-installed. In fact, it is impossible to simply install .Net 4.6 targeting framework on current windows PCs. One way to get around this is to upgrade the C# engine projects to 4.7. Is this advisable?

Hey there - the team mentioned that the older versions are still supported, but they have no plans to upgrade at this time.

It doesn’t matter. New versions are backward-compatible with the prior versions - just install the latest one.
