Nick Craver - Why you should wait on upgrading to .Net 4.6

We are not upgrading Stack Overflow to .Net 4.6, and you shouldn’t upgrade yet either. You can find the issue we opened on GitHub (for public awareness) here. I will update this post as soon as a fix is relased.

Update #1 (Jul 27th): A pull request has been posted by Matt Michell (Microsoft)

Originally posted on: – you install VS 2015, pin the icon to the start bar and ‘whaaaaaa???’ you discover it’s exactly the same Icon as for VS 2013, which is not handy. Luckily, it’s pretty simple to change that bad boy. Step 1 In the start menu, right click on the program you wish to change the icon for, and select ‘Open file location’ (in these pics, I’ve already done the update) Step 2 Right click on the icon and select ‘Properties’ Step 3
Then click on Change Icon Step 4 Pick a new Icon (I used one from: Step 5 If you have it pinned to the TaskBar, you’ll probably need to unpin and re-pin, if you don’t then the job is done – well done you!

Originally posted on:   Quick publish on this item and I’ll update once I have more details.  One of my customers is exploring Visual Studio 2015 / .Net 4.6 which was just released a week or two ago.  During some testing I found out that (as of July 28 2015 when this is published) you cannot install SharePoint 2013 binaries onto a server that has .Net 4.6 (or Visual Studio 2015 which includes .Net 4.6) installed.  I received the below error message.    Since .Net 4.6 is an in-place upgrade of .Net 4/4.5/4.5.1/4.5.2 SharePoint
has an issue with finding .Net 4.5.x after applying 4.6.  I am testing out removing the associated KB for .Net 4.6 to see if this is reversible should you accidentally deploy this to a dev / test farm.  I’m also testing if you can install .Net 4.6 / Visual Studio 2015 onto an existing SharePoint 2013 farm.   Removing associated KB… On Windows Vista SP2 / Windows 7 SP1/ Windows Server 2008 SP2 / Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, you will see the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6  as an installed product under Programs and...(Read whole news on source site)

In the last post of the Office 365 Groups for Admins series I showed you how to manage the Unified Groups using PowerShell. Let's continue on that journey and take a look at how you can manage the Group memberships using PowerShell. All membership management are done using the *-UnifiedGroupLinks cmdlets, you can access them using PowerShell and connecting to Exchange Online as shown in the previous post. The cmdlets is at the moment that well documented. If that changes I'll make sure to update this post (and please remind me). Public vs Private Groups Before we
dive into Memberships let's take a look at Public vs Private Groups, something you configure when creating the Group. In Public Groups anyone within your Organization can participate in discussions and access its content, whereas in Private Groups you have to be a member.
