Convert your project from .Net framework 3.5 to 2.0

When we open visual studio 2008 and create new project, .Net framework 3.5 is by default selected. Many times we really don’t require to write an application to run in .Net 3.5. So, the question arises How to convert the project from 3.5 to 2.0?

1. Go to Project Properties.
2. Compile Tab-> Advanced compile Options->Target Framework ->select 2.0
3. It will ask for the confirmation about you can not use features of .Net framework 3.5. Say Yes.
4.After doing this restart the project.

Its done.

Note: After doing this you may get some errors for namespaces you have used from 3.5 framework. just remove them from code.

    This helped me and my friend a lot, as we were asked to make a web application for .NET 3.5, but it turned out the server only had 2.0, and nobody really knew what to do. Thank you!
