Visual Studio is an IDE not a language.

Solution 1


Open the application in VS 2010. Then change the target framework to 3.5 and recompile the application. Rewrite the code in 3.5 syntax if you have used any 4.0 constructs.A lot of information available here[^]

When all the compile errors are resolved, you can open the application in VS 2008.
