OK, I had to write a consule app to automate a file upload system but when I tried to deploy it I am getting the strangest error.

To run this application, you first must install one of the following versions of the .net framework:
contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropraite version of the .net framework.

the strange part is the server is running v2.0.50727. I've deployed two web app and two other consule app (all VB) written with the same verision of Miscrosoft Visual studio 2005 and they are all working fine.
Why does this one app think it is on a server with the wrong framework?

Ok, that didn't help but the answer was simple stupid. I was using a citirx session to access the server because i was at a remote site. the Citrix server was using an old framework. Sorry for the stupid question. I'm giving points anyway because JonMny post did help me realize my mistake.
