Can you use VS 2005 for .NET 1.1 Web Development?

I use VS 2003 to develop 1.1 web sites. One of my clients is interested in using VS 2005 to do some additional enhancements. Is this possible? I am interested in the following:

  • Can you use VS 2005 to maintain / develop a .NET 1.1 web site? If yes, is it difficult?
  • Does VS 2005 only work with .NET 2.0?
  • Can you run VS 2005 and VS 2003 on the same computer?

Thanks in advance.

The answer is No.

Visual Studio 2005 is targetted for development using .NET 2.0.   If you try to open a .NET 1.1 Application in Visual Studio 2005, it would actually ask you and upon confirmation, covert the code to .NET 2.0., which is not reversible. 

However, you can still run Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005 on the same machine without any issues.

Upgrade/migration issues from VS2003+.NET 1.1 to VS2005+.NET 2.0
Hi,  Visual Studio is great when everything works well and you don't know what is happening under the hood. However when things don't work it is really frustrating since you just don't know what is going on.  I have a project (a web site) that was originally developed for VS2003 and ASP.NET 1.1. When I loaded this project on VS2005 (and ASP.NET 2.0), VS told me that it will migrate it to the new environment: it did a number of things, generated a migration report and created/moved files under App_code and such directories. I tried this process a number of times b...

WS-Security with VS.NET 2005 Web Service and .NET 1.1 Client
We ship a webservices client piece into the field which is required to run on the .NET 1.1 version of the framework, this is defined by our business people and cannot change. We would like to work with .NET 2.0 in VS.NET 2005 for the backend Web Service piece. We are able to get the 2 to communicate fine and it is not a problem. The issue now is that we need to introduce security through WS-Security. I have not been able to find much information about interop between the 2 environments and WS-Security and cannot get the security elements to be invoked in VS.NET 2005. Currently we are trying ...

using Web Developer 2005 where server .net ver = 1.1
My web host uses Framework 1.1.  I would like to use VWD 2005 to developdown reved pages.  Is it possible to configure VWD to use the 1.1 extensions ? VWD 2005 requires 2.0 to be regstered if you are developing IIS apps, you will not be able to use it for building sites mapped to 1.1. Alternatively you can develop file system apps, these will also run using fx 2.0 but will not require Asp.Net 2.0 to be regstered in IIS.Hope that helps,Kashif...

is it possible to use .net 1.1 with VS.NET 2002?
Is it at all possible to use .net framework 1.1 with 2002 i.e. the original VS.NET? or do i have to upgrade to 2003 to take advantage of the intellisense of new properties/methods etc. that 1.1 offers? Thanks,Kulin Parikh -- The more I learn about the Internet, the more amazed I am that it works at all. I upgraded the framework to 1.1 and had no problems, everything worked fine on VS.NET 2002. How exactly did you upgrade? I had a **** problem. After i installed .net 1.1, it still took the .net 1.0 files as the default even after running aspnet_regiis -ua and aspnet_reg...

Using Visual Studio.NET 2005 with .NET Framework 1.1
I'm wondering how easy it is to use Visual Studio.NET 2005 to develop with the .NET Framework 1.1. The 2005 IDE is superior to the VS 2003 IDE (especially in terms of HTML editing), and I would like to switch over in the future. However, my project is not quite ready to be converted to .NET 2.0. Can anyone direct me to an article on this or have any advice? Thanks, Allen K. There are 10 types of people in this world: those that understand binary and those that don't. Did you get an answer to this one? I would like to know the same..Thanks! The VS 2005 IDE was created to...
