This is by design. 2002 runs on framework 1.0, 2003 runs on 1.1. You can have both frameworks and both VS versions on the same machine and they will each run separate on the appropriate framework. If you want to develop in 1.1 you'll need to obtain 2003. However, code developed for 1.0 can run on 1.1 if it's forward compatible. Likewise, code developed in 1.1 can run on 1.0 if it's backwards compatible. MS changed some of the more complex features from 1.0 to 1.1 in a way that they would NOT be backwards or forwards compatible intentionally. There were some security issues that they needed to fix and I guess wanted to force people to apply the better techniques in their code when upgrading to 1.1.

Work smarter, not harder.
