VS2005 to 1.1 framework

P: n/a
Is it possible to have VS2005 compile code for the version 1.1 Framework?
All my users have the 1.1 framework and I'd like to not install the 2.0
framework.

Thanks,
Tom Costanza

No, each version of Visual Studio (.NET) is tied to a specific version of
the Framework.
VS 2005 - Framework v2.0
VS 2003 - Framework v1.1
VS 2002 - Framework v1.0

VS 2003 is capable to target the .NET Framework 1.0 so VS 2005 must be able
to target 1.1. In VS 2003, you can set the target runtime version in
Project Properties -> Common Properties -> General -> Supported Runtime.
See if something similar exists in VS 2005.

Perhaps you should read the dialog that appears that states "Visual Studio
..NET 2003 only builds for .NET Framework v1.1. " followed by a warning about
feature support when targeting the older version 1.0.
The OP asked: "Is it possible to have VS2005 compile code for the version
1.1 Framework?"
My answer, is pertinent, I believe.

Perhaps i sould. You're right my mistake.

Indeed. VS 2003 can generate for you the appropriate configuration file to
allow the application to run against version 1.0 of the runtime but the
compiler won't flag any 1.1-only features that you've used in the code so
it's the developper responsability to ensure that no 1.1-only features have
been used. Too bad that you can't take advantage of the newer IDE to
develop for older runtime versions.
