I have converted a 2010 C# app to 2008 C# App by changing the solution file from Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 11.00 C# Visual Studio 2010 to Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00 C# Visual Studio 2008.
A brief look over it doesn't seem to do anything odd, it just I can't test it fully.
Why do I think a world of pain happens when the user get his mits on it!?
I don't know automatic converter for this, but I managed to do it manually. Make two identical project file samples with different version and thoroughly spot all differences. Make changes and text.—SA
Do yourself and everyone a great favor: when you learn if, write an automatic converter and publish it as a CodeProject article. This code will be very welcome. I saw an old work doing that, but it was not completely correct and worked only with older versions.
Why it is important? People write articles, want the working with many versions used by the readers.
"Why do I think a world of pain happens when the user get his mits on it!?"
You need to ask?
Users are the bane of developers.
Things are always great until users get their grubby little protruberances on them.
However, you have not really asked anything, nor said why you felt you had to back convert.
