I don't think that it's possible. You'll have to use vs2010 to do so.

We can optionally retarget our project to work with a later version of .NET by right-clicking on the project within the solution explorer and by bringing up its properties dialog.  We can select the “target framework” dropdown within it and select the version of the .NET Framework we want to target:

VS2008 doesn't support development against 4.0. You can install the framework, but it won't be added to the possible target frameworks.

You'll need to use visual studio 2010 to develop against 4.0 framework
