Discord.Net is distributed through the NuGet package manager; the most recommended way for you to install this library. Alternatively, you may also compile this library yourself should you so desire.
Discord.Net targets .NET 6.0 and .NET 5.0, but is also available on older versions, like .NET Standard and .NET Core; this still means that creating applications using the latest version of .NET (6.0) is most recommended. If you are bound by Windows-specific APIs or other limitations, you may also consider targeting .NET Framework 4.6.1 or higher.
Using this library with Mono is not supported until further notice. It is known to have issues with the library's WebSockets implementation and may crash the application upon startup.
Installing with NuGet
Release builds of Discord.Net will be published to the official NuGet feed.
Development builds of Discord.Net, as well as add-ons, will be published to our MyGet feed. See @Guides.GettingStarted.Installation.Nightlies to learn more.

Installing on Unsupported WebSocket Platform
When running any Discord.Net-powered bot on an older operating system (e.g. Windows 7) that does not natively support WebSocket, you may encounter a PlatformNotSupportedException upon connecting.
You may resolve this by either targeting .NET Core 2.1 or higher, or by installing one or more custom packages as listed below.
- Download the latest [.NET Core SDK].
- Create or move your existing project to use .NET Core.
- Modify your
<TargetFramework>tag to at least
netcoreapp2.1, or by adding the
--framework netcoreapp2.1switch when building.
