Power Toys - Develop Applications for .NET Framework 1.1 using Visual Studio 2005

I had earlier

blogged about not being able to develop applications for .NET Framework 1.1 using Visual Studio 2005. Now there is some great news on this.

As part of the

Microsoft’s Shared Source initiative ‘PowerToys V 1.0’ for VisualStudio 2005 was released recently. One of the components in that – "MSBee" enables developers to target .NET FW 1.1 using VisualStudio 2005. This means you don’t have to upgrade your .NET 1.1 apps just because you needed some of the cool new features in VisualStudio 2005. Check out a couple of other cool tools also – Team Foundation Server Admin Tool and Managed Stack Explorer.
