    This repo contains .NET Portability Analyzer (VSIX and Console) libraries and tools

    Then why does it matter that .NET Framework 4.8.1 doesn't support old servers. You're already on borrowed time. .NET Framework will probably EOL somewhere around 2026-27. If the cost to migrate to .NET 6 isn't worth it, then you might as well start retiring the software because you're basically saying it's not important enough to keep updated. The migration from 4.6+ to .NET 6 really isn't difficult unless you've got some weird obscure dependencies that haven't been updated yet and aren't open source. Have you even tried the portability analyzer? I work in consulting, and we hear this a lot, "oh our code is just too old and it's too much effort to port it to .NET Core", and from what I've seen the last few years, unless your project is still running in VB.NET with Web Forms and ASP, you can most likely upgrade to .NET 6 with way less effort than you expect.
