.NET Framework Prereqs

How do I figure out the .NET framework requirements of a project I'm
developing? And secondly, if the machine I'm building this project
for doesn't have the required framework version, can I dumb down my
project to make it compatible? I'm suggesting that instead of
updating because the target machine is extremely locked down. Thanks
for the help.

If they can isntall your system must probably it's same to assume that they
can isntall the framework. Just modify the setup project to check for the
framework and install it if not present.

That's definitely an option, but in the event that I can't install my
solution either, how do I go about finding its framework requirements?

I do not undersatnd what you mean, your app require the framework, only
that.

I guess what I'm getting at is, how can I make my project compatible
with older versions of the .NET framework? When I release this, I
want it to work in 2.0 as well as say, 1.1.....

In general you need the same framework version. Now, I do not know if a 1.1
program works in 2.0. What I can tell you for sure is that a 2.0 program
does not work in a 1.1 framework !!!

Just include the correct framework with your setup project.

While software can be backwards compatable, software generally cannot be
expected to be "forward compatable". This applies to the.NET Framework as
any other software. That is, you cannot expect the .NET Framework 1.1 to be
able to run apps created on a *later* version (e.g., 2.) of the framework...
just like you cannot reasonably expect Microsoft Access 2.0 to be able to
open .mdf files created with MS Access 97.

If you need for an app that you write to work on both 1.1 and 2.0, your only
real chance to make that happen is to create your app using 1.1 (and VS
2003)
