In this article I will explain how to change the Target Framework of VB.Net Windows and Console Applications in Visual Studio 2010.
For C# Windows and Console Applications, the Target Framework can be changed very easily using the Properties window. But for VB.Net projects, it is not visible.
For VB.Net applications the option is available and to change the Target Framework you need to follow the steps as shown below.
1. Right click the Project and then click Properties option from the context menu.
2. In the Properties window, select the Compile Tab. In the Compile Tab you need to click on the Advanced Compile Options button as shown below.
3. In the Advanced Compiler Settings dialog, you will find a DropDown to change the Target Framework.
