Upgrade the source to VS2010

description

Upgrade this solution to VS2010.
 
I'm not ready to update it to Framework 4.0, because
 
(a) I don't see the huge benefit. A build based on .NET 2.0 will work in .NET 4.0 app.
(b) there is a big downside: all of the older apps will not be able to use the newer library.
 
So, I will continue to target .NET 2.0, but the source project will be updated to VS2010.
 
Concurrent with this I will upgrade the setup projects to WIX // .wixproj.
For the workitem covering that, see http://dotnetzip.codeplex.com/workitem/13674 .

As of changeset 79567, this is complete. The wix project is still to come.

Also is it possible to produce a non-compact framework version?

I don't have VS2010; don't have the money to upgrade.

Will look into using donations to make the necessary purchase. Not sure this is kosher though.

I now have a copy of VS2010. I will update the source and project format to VS2010. I don't know if I will build for .NET Fx 4.0; I think there is still interest in building for v3.5 and v2.0.
