Does .NET 2.0 is supported on Microsoft Visual studio 2002 ie for 32 bit
application as .NET 2.0 is supported on Microsoft Visual studio 2005.
And if yes How .NET 1.0 is to be upgraded to 2.0 on Microsoft visual studio

Hello Prajakta,

VS 2002 works only with the 1.0 version of .NET

OK.

Yes.
Is .NET 2.0 supported in Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2002
application as .NET 2.0 is supported on Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2005?
No.
And if yes How .NET 1.0 is to be upgraded to 2.0 on Microsoft visual

VS.NET 2002 can only target v1.0 of the .NET Framework.

You have two options:

1) Stay with VS.NET 2002, although mainstream support ended earlier this
year:
http://support.microsoft.com/lifecyc...ilter=FilterNO

2) Upgrade to VS.NET 2005 and open your project in it - the Conversion
Wizard will kick in and (more or less) convert your project to .NET 2.0. You
could also wait for VS.NET 2008 to be officially released in February (or
download it now if you're an MSDN / TechNet subscriber).

Most likely, you can upgrade the application by opening it in Visual Studio
2005. It is also possible that you can just compile as 2.0, but you will be
compiling blind and have to rely on compiler errors (if any) to guide you to
fixingthe code. The most likely area for errors from 1.x to 2 is XML.

As for VS .NET 2002, you cannot make it compile 2.0 (this may not be
completely true, as you could hack at the registry, etc., but it is
certainly NOT worth it).

I would suggest upgrading to VS 2005 or 2008 (only MSDN right now) or
downloading the Express SKUs until you can budget the full product.

Hi,

According to me if you open .NET 1.0 application in VS2005. It will
get converted to 2.0 version
but it is not backward compatable.

Check it out. Please let me know

Thanks
