    Can VS2005 compile an app that targets CLR 1.1? TVMIA.

    I believe the answer is no. Although you can write C# code that would compile using VS2003 (or the .NET 1.1 SDK command-line compilers), they took the decision to not make VS2005 target CLR 1.1 becuase there are too many different little changes to how things work, as well as one major one: the Windows Forms designer. Instead they put effort into making VS2005 play nice with VS2003 on the same machine.

    Only Compact Framework, not for the "full thing".

    Ahh. Thank you gents. That's bad news for me because then I have to continue using VS2003. Sad

    WHile it is not 100% complete in terms of Visual Studio Integration, MSBee can compile projects with 1.1 framework. You have to modify an existing project or create a new template, but it is possible.
