.NET Framework (legacy) system requirements

  • Updated


If your applications are running on modern technology you should use the .NET Framework agent instead of the legacy agent.

The legacy .NET Framework agent offers the full capabilities of Contrast Assess, Protect, and SCA as of April 2020 but is no longer receiving new features or lower severity bug fixes. Contrast is no longer fixing bugs in the legacy agent as of January, 2023.

Before installing the .NET Framework legacy agent, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You have administrative access to a web server, and the server is supported by Contrast.

  • There is a deployed application to be analyzed, and the web application technology is supported by Contrast.

  • IIS can be restarted.

  • The web server has network connectivity with Contrast.

  • The server meets the minimum requirements.
