      What about .Net Native Roslyn compiled code and Exceptions? Won't it be garbled because of the lack of Pdbs?

      Hi @WilliamABradley, Google Analytics send exceptions (or stack traces) as strings..   

      HockeyApp does send exception objects and they can be symbolicated via HockeyApp- if you upload your symbols to HockeyApp servers)..

      getting this error while adding the SDK to a simple winform application in VS 2015, targeting 4.5.2:

      Could not install package 'UWP.SDKforGoogleAnalytics.Managed 1.5.2'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets '.NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.

      What is the minimum requirement to add the SDK to the project?

      hieu, best place to get support is github.   Were you installing the SDK in a WIndows Store app, or a desktop app. The SDK you were installing is the UWP one. For desktop apps, we don't have a nuget package; the way to reference on desktop is to add a reference to C# project.
