How can the OSIsoft.AF reference be added to an existing VB.net 2010 application?
I am updating a 15 year old application that was running on an old XP machine. We need to retain the old XP machine in order to keep the current serial port connections that are being used on that older hardware.
I have installed the AF SDK on the PC where I am rewriting the executable, but I can't find any reference to AF in either the COM or NET tabs of the Add Reference dialog. The C version of sample code on Github mentions an application extension for OSIsoft.AF. Does an application extension in C translate to a COM or a NET reference, in vb.net terms? Does the AF SDK require Visual Studio 2012? I know that VB 2010 works on XP, but does Visual Studio 2012 work on an XP PC?
Thank you for helping me with these beginner's baby steps toward getting this update work started,
