vs 2005 application will not run on windows 7 64 bit

I have an application that runs fine on my winxppro sp2 machine. When I copy it to my windows 7 64 bit machine it says the following error. The machine has .net framework 4.0 and from what I've read its downward compatible to 2.0. I just say the program has encoutered a problem. I've set my compiler to comile to 'any version'.

Having the 4.0 framework is not enough... you should install the 'Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0' anyway..

That say's something? Are you using any external components? Are you using Jet (Access)?

Weird, i right clicked ran as administrator then uncheck run as administrator and it worked. Rebooted and it still works. Not sure why. Framework 4 only installed. This is a vb 2005 2.0 project and it works. Thanks anyway.
