The minimum supported ASP.NET non-Core version is 4.6.1
  • SerialPortPrinter class does not longer references to System.IO.Ports enums for related properties and were changed to similar enums part of WebClientPrint assembly. System.IO.Ports.Handshake, System.IO.Ports.Parity, and System.IO.Ports.StopBits must be changed by SerialPortHandshake, SerialPortParity, and SerialPortStopBits respectivelly.
