Save Visual Studio 2008 project as Visual Studio 2005 project

Hi Experts,

Is there a way I can downgrade projects from VS2008 to VS2005? Most projects are written in VB.NET but some are C#.NET

not really but have you tried to open the project (.vbproj) in VS2005 and not the solution (.sln).

do you know that you can target .Net Framework 2.0 even if you are using VS2008? This settings is in the project properties.
