I am wondering, is there any way to use the libraries built in VS2008 with the application compiled in VS2002 and vice versa?

I'm pretty sure there's no VS2002, you mean 2003?

No, VS2002 is available. VS 2002 is the first version DotNet 1.0 (Currenly I am working with ( Legacy System).
VS2003 is DotNet 1.1 (more Stable version)

If your libraries are C Libraries, you wont need to worry about anything.

If you have code of application project, then the best way is to migrate it to the VS2008 and the try to link.

You also can try using COM to wrap over the library.

Application and Libraries are built based on C++, MFC (VS2002) and some are using WPF, C# in VS2008.
Is there any solution for this?
No Source code available.

are the classes exporting functions or classes? if they're exporting classes, you're pretty much SOL without the source... if it's C functions, it should probably still work...
