Hello Experts,
I have a website in Visual Studio 2003, in XP machine.  My XP machine being replaced with Windows 7.  Now when I try to load the project in Visual Studio 2010 (Window 7 machine) it forces me to upgrade to framework 4.0.  Is there anyway,  I can still use .NET Framework 2.0 under Visual Studio 2010 environment without conversion?  Thank you very much in advance.

Thank you.

NO, conversion is compulsory because you are using website built using version 1.1. (Vs2003) that is not supported by VS2010 . Sadly you can not choose which framework to upgrade in conversion process
You can change the Target Framework .NET 2.0 after the conversion, as shown here. This link provides hints/steps on how to proceed when migrating VS2003 projects. Be aware that conversion does not mean your project is ready to run, you still need to fix manually some .NET 2.0 differences. ( It could be a long time consuming task depending on code)
