.net framework version displayed in Visual C#

P: n/a
I am new to Visual C#. My question relates to installation
and what version of .NET Framework C# is seeing.

I installed Visual C# while I had .NET Framework v1.03.
Later, using Windows Update in IE I tried to update .NET
Framework from v1.0 to v1.1. It refused to update like
that, always saying something like "installation failed".
(Actually I had tried to do this update before installing
Visual C# and it had failed similarly.) And when I checked
the Help-About in Visual C#, it said .NET Framework 1.03.
I didn't know why it would not upgrade. So I went to
Control Panel, Add Remove Programs. Both v1.0 and v1.1
of .NET Framework were listed there. However, every time I
went back to Windows Update in IE, it still said that I
needed v1.1 and still failed to install. So from Control
Panel I removed .NET framework v1.0. Then rebooted and
went back to Visual C#, which now said that I had v 1.0,
as opposed to the 1.03 it had listed earlier. And when
went to Windows Update, it still said I needed .NET
framework v1.1. But when tried to get it, it failed to
install again. So I went back to Control Panel and removed
v1.1 listed there. Then rebooted and went back to Windows
Update. This time .NET Framework v1.1 installed
successfully. But when I went back into Visual C#, Help,
About still says "Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0". I imagine
that it should show v1.1. If so, and the version displayed
there matters, how do I fix it? I am starting a brand new
project. So this is not a matter of trying to update an
existing app from v1.0 to 1.1. It is a matter of trying to
start in v1.1, and being concerned that Visual C# is
saying .NET Framework v1.0.

Hey Kirk,

You cannot use the .NET Framework 1.1 with Visual Studio 2002 I believe.
Only when you update to VS.NET 2003 you can choose to use 1.0 or 1.1.

I normally install the Framework and MDAC updates BEFORE installing the
VS.NET IDE. That way I know what build I am running.

Right; you can perfectly well have .NET 1.0 and 1.1 on the same computer;
1.1 does not replace 1.0. But Visual Studio .NET 2002 and its .exe files
that it produces use 1.0.
