Kentico 7 to 8 upgrade converted app to .net 4.5, how to undo

Development Support asked on July 3, 2014 13:43

In a bit of a pickle. I used the Kentico 7 to 8 upgrade tool to upgrade a site that is .net 4.0, but during the process it converted the site to .net 4.5, so when i pushed it from our dev boxes (which have 4.5) to the production server (which does not have 4.5) it errored out. I have the site in offline mode, trying to fix before having to roll back the database and files back to 7 on production, firstly can you address why it does this and secondly a solution for myself?

In Visual Studio on your v8 site, you can change that to use .net 4.0 vs. 4.5. Right click the website and go to property pages. Then in the Build section change it from 4.5 to 4.0. Make sure you have a back up of the site prior to doing this, just in case.
