Changing Targeted .Net Framework - Visual Studio Orcas

    Hello and thanks for having me.

    I have been trying to find an answer to this everywhere, but it appears I am failing terribly.

    I am trying to find how to change the .NET Framework version Visual Studio Orcas BETA1 targets when creating an application in VB or C#? As far as I can tell by default the .NET Framework version Orcas targets is 3.5. I want to be able to change this to 1.1, 2.0 & 3.0 accordingly. This is a feature I thought was available, I just can't seem to find it anywhere.

    From what I have read and from a video I have watched at Channel9.MSDN this is definately a feature available in the new Visual Studio but is it actually available in the current BETA1? I thought it was.

    According to this video it's possible:

    Third post in this thread also says its possible:

    Before this new feature in Visual Studio users would have to load different versions of Visual Studio on their PC's for targeting specific version of the .NET Framework (or use a different IDE with specific .NET Framework SDK - Like SharpDevelop). But from what I understand Visual Studio Orcas is here to change that, allowing one version of Visual Studio to be loaded on a users PC to target any version of the .NET Framework.

    Perhaps I am looking at this completely wrong and I have gotten my information mixed up. If so please advise. If anyone can lend a hand and show me how to do this I would appreciate it a lot.

    Thanks kindly,
    nodtek

    In Orcas Beta 1 there is a dropdown on the top right of the new project window where you can select the frameworks.

    On existing projects, its in the project properties dialog of the solution - where you setup other things like publishing and assembly information.  Again, there is a dropdown.

    Not sure pre-Beta 1.  I think there was a small icon on the new project window which expanded to give you the options.

    Sorry I'm using BETA1 - Got the versions incorrect.

    As for this drop down box, I can't seem to find it (definately using BETA1 I just checked) - Are you able to take a screenshot for me please?

    Thanks kindly.
