How can I view what libraries are supported in a PCL?


  • You can find an overview of the various features supported by the various PCL target platforms under the "Supported Features" portion of this page:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg597391.aspx

  • Another option is to use the .NET Portability Analyzer to assess whether your existing library can be converted to a PCL profile.

  • A third possibility is to browse the contents of the actual Profile that you might use.

    Example: Profile 78

    For example, you might go here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETPortable\v4.5\Profile\Profile78\

    And view all the assemblies within it.

Whichever method you chose, please note that some functionality has to be downloaded via NuGet and the Microsoft BCL library!
