Visual Studio 2010 and Target Frameworks

Posted 07 March 2011 - 04:29 PM

Hello All,

Im a little lost, I'm new to using visual studio and I'm trying to figure out how to change the Target Framework of a project I'm trying to compile.

When I open the application properties and open the drop down box for Target Frame works. only .NET Framework 4 and .NET Framework 4 Client profile are options.

Does any one know how to add additional frame works to visual studio 2010?

You need to install the other frameworks on your PC.

Thanks for the reply!

I think I figured it out. I had a few of the .NET frameworks on my computer but visual studio 2010 didn't seem to recognize them. It turns out that visual studio 2010 needs .NET 3.5 with service pack 1. Once you download this visual studio will let you choose any framework from .NET 2 to .NET 4.

Hope this helps someone down the line! :bigsmile:
