6 Appendix A: Product Behavior

The information in this specification is applicable to the following Microsoft products or supplemental software. References to product versions include updates to those products.

This document specifies version-specific details in the Microsoft .NET Framework.  For information about which versions of the .NET Framework are available in each released Windows product or as supplemental software, see [MS-NETOD] section 4.

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7

Exceptions, if any, are noted in this section. If an update version, service pack or Knowledge Base (KB) number appears with a product name, the behavior changed in that update. The new behavior also applies to subsequent updates unless otherwise specified. If a product edition appears with the product version, behavior is different in that product edition.

Unless otherwise specified, any statement of optional behavior in this specification that is prescribed using the terms "SHOULD" or "SHOULD NOT" implies product behavior in accordance with the SHOULD or SHOULD NOT prescription. Unless otherwise specified, the term "MAY" implies that the product does not follow the prescription.

<1> Section 2.1: Windows XP operating system, Windows Server 2003 operating system, Windows Vista operating system, Windows Server 2008 operating system, and Windows 7 operating system ignore the SOAP ActivityId Header Block if the client/server is configured to not participate in correlated tracing. The client/server can be configured to not participate in correlated tracing by not specifying "activityTracing" for the switchValue attribute associated with trace sources in the Application Configuration (App.Config) file. Additionally, the server also requires that the "propagateActivity" attribute needs to be set to false for the trace source.
