Building Visual Studio.NET 2003+ For Previous Version of the Framework

Well it’s easy to change how it builds.

  1. Right click on the project in the Solution Explorer and select Properties
  2. Under Common Properties – General (which should be the default way that the properties dialog shows up) go to the Support Runtimes item.
  3. Clicking on the ellipses “…” will bring up the dialog box that will let you choose which version of the Framework your project should support.

Enjoy!
