its 2.0 and yes you can, no probs. If it had been ASP.Net then there may be some minor modifications.

deepesh, .net 3 is has been officialy release now, so that would make it the latest .net.
you cant run .net3 in vs2003. you cant even run it in vs2005 without downloading a few patches especially for the case.

Each version of Visual Studio is tied to a SPECIFIC version of .Net:

    VS.Net 2002 = .Net 1.0
    VS.Net 2003 = .Net 1.1
    VS.Net 2005 = .Net 2.0

As newyuppie pointed out though, you can download extensions to work with .Net 3.0 in VS2005.  It should be noted, however, that you CANNOT do this VB.Net 2005 Express.

I think what DEEPESH was trying to say is that you can install multiple versions of Visual Studio and the .Net Framework side by side without any problems.

All good comments thus far :)

As was pointed out, each version of Visual Studio targets a specific version of the framework. While you can port code pretty much directly to the next newer framework (warning, your mileage may vary), you cannot compile against new versions of the framework from the older IDE.

Now, as to .NET 3.0.... although this is the official name, it is a misnomer, since 3.0 is a series of extension libraries for framework 2.0. There are no underlying framework, MSIL or language changes -- these will come, ironically enough, in .NET 3.5.

.NET 3.0 only runs on XP, Vista or Windows 2003 Server.
