VS2015 CTP Cannot Compile for 32 bit machine

I am caught.  I started using VS2015 under Win10 to write my software.   The software must be compatible with win32.  I can not get VS2015 to compile 32 bit and the file are not downward compatible with VS2010 or VS2013.  I need a 32 bit version to run on XP.  I know.... it's gone but my clients have not and need to be able to support them.

How do I get a 32bit compile?  I went into Compile:

Configuration:  Active (x86)
Active: Active (Any CPU)   <-- no other option
Explicit:  on
Strict:  off
Compare: binary
Infer: on

I have tried:

Target CPU:  Any CPU
Checked prefer 32 bit


Target CPU:  x86

Neither of the two work.  EXE if fine on 64bit machines, but not on XP machines.  Says not win32 compatible.

Fixed.  Would not work under .NET 4.5.  Works with .NET 4.0.
