All Bot applications using the Microsoft Bot Builder SDK must be upgraded to Bot Builder SDK v3.5 and greater. This applies for both C# and NodeJS Bots. All bots using any SDK below v3.5 will stop being supported by this date.
For those currently using the botbuilder SDK, simply upgrade to the latest packages.
Using npm for Node and Nuget for C# :
npm install –save botbuilder
Verify in your node application’s
package.json file that your bot has at least botbuilder v3.5 installed.
Verify in your Nuget package manager that your project includes at least
Microsoft.Bot.Builder v3.5 or greater.
