Hi guys,

I have created a small app in visual studio. in vb script. When I run it in windows xp it just says not a valid 32 bit application. Even when I say target cpu x86. Why is that?

    Which .NET framework version are you using? If you need XP compatibility you probably need to stick with .NET 2.0.
