How force VS2005 to use older version of .NET Framework?

P: n/a
I have been asked to write a ..NET Windows app using the 1.1 framework. I
have both 1.1 and 2.0 on my PC. When I create a new project in Visual
Studio 2005, it shows initial namespaces under references (System,
System.Data) all of which are version 2.0.

How can I tell my project to use only the 1.1 framework?

Thanks,
Ron

VS 2005 works with .NET Framework v2.0(/3.0)
VS .NET 2003 works with .NET Framework v1.1

You'll need VS .NET 2003.

It is possible to use MSBee:

However, I think that it is more confusing to do this, as you can very
easily start using non-existant features in the IDE... Personally I'd
just use VS2003...

Ok, so how then would I have my VS2005 environment use 2.0 framework? Would
I
necessarily have to NOT have 3.0 framework installed? What if I was running
Vista (which includes 3.0 framework by default) and VS2005 and wanted to
develop against 2.0 framework. Are you telling me its not possible?

Thanks,

Ron

VS2005 always works against .net 2. .net 3 isn't really a major
release, its just some new assemblies added, but otherwise everything
else is the same (the CLR, and mscorlib).

..Net 3 = .Net 2 + WinFX, nothing more.

So to develop against .net 2, just use Vs2005. If you want to develop
against .Net 3, you'll need the VS2005 WFF extension, and VS2005 WCF &
WPF extension.

If you want to develop against .net 1.1, you must use VS2003.
