      is there some language specific feature that is only exposed in VB, if not then just change to C#, VB is significantly harder to read than c#, and there are so many conversion helpers…. wouldn’t take more than a week to convert even really large projects, or well maybe 2 months depending but still the advantages readability wise would be worth the investment in the conversion. just my 2 cents

    Hello Microsoft ,

    Looking forward to working with .NET 5.0 but we also need to know how to block the installation on those application servers where its not supported.

    Is the registry key to block it, “BlockNetFrameWork50” and set the value to “1” ?
