4.5 is a disaster as an in-place update. 

All my older apps break, plus apps I've bought I cannot use until their dev teams update!! 

Why on earth does MS do this to themselves? They're slowly but surely, through bad decisioning, making the case for developers to move over to more stable and consistent languages! Perhaps an iMac is on the cards yet!!!!!

Hi R144N,

thanks for the feedback. We can't reproduce the problem as it stated too general. Our goal was making .NET 4.5 as compatible with .NET 4.0 as possible and thus consider breaking changes a bug. If you find specific issues, please file them.
