I have download the visual C# express beta 2, and i am looking for a way to only use framework 1 assemblys in a project. Unfortunatly visual dont recognize assemblys (System and such) in their version 1, I cant even add them manually in the reference section. I want to work with framework 1 only, because its just a little program that manipulate text file and i want to use it on a computer at work, but I dont want to install a beta version of a framework on it. So is there a way to select the compiler in visual C# express beta 2 ? With sharpdevelop you can target the version of the compiler you need in compiler options but i dont really like sharpdevelop :)

You can not compile for the lower framework in the express editions.. You will have to either use an IDE that can compile to the older framework, or use the command line tools in the SDK.

Thanks !

So it seems i will keep using #develop for compiling on framework 1.0, so boring to always convert... :)

Any reason why its not possible?

Actually you can, in the project options, i forget which window, you can select ISO 1 as your target for the .net framework (or you could in the beta 1 express and VS). However, certain features may not work properly and you might have to edit the project files to get it to work.

Just be careful.

If you are able to go back to a previous version of the Framework in the Express product, the older version of the Framework did not support some of the new features available in .NET 2.0, like generics.
