I recently had a PC crash and had to do a fresh install of Win XP.
Luckily I had backups of a vast majority of my data including my VS projects.
I have just reinstalled VS2010 Ultimate and then decided to open my latest project only to be told that the project was targeted at the .Net 2.0 framework, which is correct, that is what I had it set to prior to my PC crash but that .Net 2.0 is not installed on my PC and I would have to load the project as .Net 4.0 and that I could change the framework back within the project options.
This struck me as strange because I have .Net 2.0, .Net 3.5 & .Net 4.0 installed on my machine, they are there showing in Add & Remove Programs list.
I went ahead and let VS re-target the project to 4.0, went into the project options to change the framework back to 2.0 but there were no other options, only 4.0.
I know that I have the other frameworks installed, especially 2.0.
Form my Add & Remove Programs list it shows:-
Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 - version 2.1.21022
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
