Can I use VS.NET 2002 to compile for .Net Framework 1.1?

P: n/a
Is it possible to use VS.NET 2002 to compile for .NET Framework 1.1?

I know that VS.NET 2003 would do that and I can install VS.NET 2002 and 2003
but we don't have 2003 yet and there is more and more components that
require 1.1. I don't want to use the command line compilers...

thanks,

Why not, there's nothing wrong with them? Besides, Microsoft will release a
new version of vs with every new (minor) version of .net and you will be
upgrading every year. Just use vs 2002 as a text editor and the .net 1.1
compiler on the command line. Then you can upgrade however often you like
(not to the Microsoft schedule).

Wow it just occurred to me that you could have to upgrade vs.net up to
three/four times in the development of one (large) project!

Hi Stan,

No, Visula Studio .NET 2002 can only build applications targeting .NET
Framework 1.0, while Visual Studio .NET 2003 for .NET Framework 1.1. Please
refer to the following articles in details:
