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 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.


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.

Click Scheduler upgrade

I’ve recently started a new contract as a Systems Analyst working on an upgrade of a ClickSoftware scheduling system from version 7.1 (VB6) to 7.5  (.Net).

It looks like it’s going to be lots of fun. Lots of challenges getting my head around the problem domain (scheduling resources in utilities is not like scheduling trains) but the software seems well thought out and structured.

There are connectors to SAP and a Net-weaver front-end which is new to me so there’s some learning to do there but the base product is .Net so I’m at home with that part.  And most of my role will be analysis whch makes for a change form the heavy coding I’ve been doing recently. I’m starting with a Gap Analysis between the two versions and updating the existing documentation as I go.
