Don't offer upgrades for a Tentacle that can't be upgraded

I have a tentacle running on a Windows Server 2003 machine (don’t ask!).

Because the highest version of .NET that can be installed on this OS is 4.0, I am limited to running the 3.0.x releases of Tentacle software.

While it is true that I can change the settings for that tentacle to lock to the current version and not upgrade it, even then the Connectivity tab for the tentacle still says “ (upgrade available)” in bright(ish) yellow - which for this machine is incorrect.

Can Octopus not suggest that an upgrade is available for a tentacle if the operating system will not support the newer version?


Hi David,

Thanks for getting in touch. Does the message cause a problem?

I wonder whether we could detect the OS and hide it if it is that particular version.


Well a problem only in the sense that it jumps out for my attention even
though there’s nothing I can do about it :slight_smile:

Detecting the OS and suppressing if appropriate would be ideal.


Hi David,

Thank you for that. We currently don’t track what version is running on a machine, so it’s not a quick fix. You can however add your comment and votes to the UserVoice ticket here:
