Why does CLick once insist on .net 3.5

Hi,
I have a basic app that I have build and am trying to use the click
once/publish feature to make the installation.

I have create a Virtual Machine using XP SP2, install VS.2005(aka dev) and
created the project.

I have a second Virtual Machine also with XP SP2(aka Clean), nothing else
installed.

When I use the Clean machine to run the installation it first wants to to
install dotNet framework 3.5

I don't want to have the user having to install 62mb of .net 3.5 framework
when the application is build for 2.0

I have checked the setting for the publish now function, and the only
Prerequisite is .net framework 2.0

Even when I unclick this (to test) the application installation still wants
to install .net 3.5 framework.

What is going on!!!

I want to have XP Sp2 users using my applicaton, so since they already have
2.0 then I don't have to install anything but my little application

Hi Aussie,
Just a guess, if you have used VS 2008 for a while then the target
framework may have been set to 3.5,then 2.0 clients may have forced to
use 3.5.

Hi Kimi... (your off to a good year so far with a few wins already!)

I was thinking that that was an issue, so I created the Virtual Machine with
only VS2005 and nothing else. I have not installed the .net 3.5 frame work
on the VM machine.

From what I can tell its totally clean environment.

Which is why I am so confused and frustrated!
