Using vs2005 for .net 1.1 apps

Okay, this is a little behind the times but I have a client who uses VS2005 and yet still needs sone of their code to be targeted to .net 1.1 framework. So I did a little googling and came up with this early article on doing just this with the Whidbey Beta2. So I tried it out and it still works!

With the simple console/service apps I’ve tested so far I’ve got it running on VS2005 Team Edition for Developers and C# Express. Next up is a web app and then a windows forms app (which is where I think I’ll have the most issues).

I also have some vb.net apps which I support so I’ll be creating a “CrossCompile.VisualBasic.targets”.

But if I can get them all running then I’m ditching VS2003 off my machine because I can maitain any of my legacy code inside a much nicer IDE.

Update:

And then I find a MS product calledd MSBee. It’s old (download dated May 16 2006) but I’l have to give that a try too.

    Did you ever end up getting a VB targets file working? I’m trying to get something like this to work too

    If you go to Jomo Fisher’s work – linked above – this works in VS2005 Team edition for Developers.
