Creating a web setup project in .net 3.5 that targets to .net 2.0


P

Pooja

Hi,

I have my 2.0 web application running in VS 2008. I added a web setup
project to the same solution and selected the template while creating the
project as: .Net Framework 2.0. After creating the .msi, I tried running it
on a different machine, which has .net framework 2.0. It prompts to install
..net 3.5. I want it to work on 2.0.

Please advice as to what am I missing while creating my setup project.

Thanks,
Pooja.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for replying.

There is a pre-requisites section, there I selected .Net 2.0 instead of .Net
3.5. I also tried removing everything from this section. Still it asks for
installation of .net 3.5 only.

Thanks,
Pooja.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your help. I got the solution. You just need to do the following:
1. Right click on the Setup Project in Solution Explorer.
2. View -> Launch Conditions.
3. Select .Net Framework. Properties -> select the appropriate version of
..net framework.

Thanks,
Pooja.
