I'm back with Spotty Bowles, a tester on the VB compiler team, as he shows us the ins and outs of how multi-targeting works in Visual Basic projects in Visual Studio 2010. We've had multi-targeting since Visual Studio 2008, but what's tricky in 2010 is that there are now two supported versions of the CLR. Spotty shows us how to work with client and full framework profiles in Visual Studio, as well as what happens at runtime when referenced class libraries target a different profile. He also shows us how to use some of the new VB10 language features when down targeting to 2.0, and how to specify down targeting from the build command line. 

For more information, check out Spotty's article in MSDN magazine:
