Visual Studio 2008 Applications on Windows 98?

Hi,

I have recently written an application in Visual Studio 2005, which I have managed to publish and install on a 98 machine running .net 2.0 fine.  Thought it was about time to upgrade to 2008, so converted the files over, and recompiled to test and I now get an error saying "Expects a newer version of Windows".  I read somewhere that MS have dropped the support for any Win 9x versions?  Is this true, and if so are there any get arounds, or am I just going to have to stick with 2005 instead?

Thanks in advance.

.net 3.5 requires WindowsXP, Server2003 or higher.http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en#Requirements

.net 2.0 is available for W98. So you have to build a .net 2.0 Application. A HowTo can be found here:

Great help, but I don't have the options to do as is mentioned.  I presume the functionality is not available in the express versions?

I dont have the express edition available but it looks like you have to use VS Standard or the old VS 2005. Maybe there is a plugin available?
