Targeting the NET Framework Using the New Project Dialog

To examine some of the basic features of Visual Studio 2008, create a new VB Console Application (named Vs2008Example) using the File >- New >- Project menu item. As you can see in Figure 2-8, Visual Studio 2008 now (finally) supports the ability to select which version of the .NET Framework you wish to build against (2.0, 3.0, or 3.5) using the drop-down list box on the upper right of the New Project dialog box. For each project in this text, you can simply leave the default selection of .NET Framework 3.5.

Figure 2-8. Visual Studio 2008 now allows you to target a particular version of the .NETFramework.
