VS.NET SETUP project for .NET Framework 1.0

I am building an application with a setup project to be installed on a machine with .NET F/W 1.0. My build machine is running VS.NET 2003, which uses .NET F/W 1.1. I can build the application project (specifiying that target machine has 1.0 OR 1.1) and hand-install it onto my target (.NET F/W 1.0) machine, but if I use the Setup project, it won't install (says it needs .NET F/W 1.1). How can I build a setup project that ruins under .NET FW 1.0??

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In regards to a Visual Studio setup project, I don’t know if it’s possible, b/c I think it uses 1.1 code internally (allowing you to run custom scripts, etc.).

Another possibility would be to use something like InnoSetup (which is free).

    Why not just install 1.1 on the target machine? My understanding is that there is no conflict when having both versions on the same machine.

    Thanks rpgrmmr, Yes, installing 1.1 will be the answer, the 1.0 route would be a quick way around an unresponsive IT dept! I don't have administrator priveleges. VS.NET was supposed to alleviate that problem, but if the installer doesn't work... (Of course, I can also just copy the 1.0 built files without using the installer) JSC
