Changing the default Framework from Client Profile to Full in five minutes and five steps (aka Editing a Project Template to change its default Framework)

Daniel Wertheim - C#, Visual Studio 2010, No more Client profile in 5minutes.

"I guess I’m not alone being tired of running into the “Client profile” framework version used when creating a Console application in Visual Studio 2010. Don’t know how life is going to be in coming version of Visual Studio, but until then, lets show you a solution that takes no more than 5 minutes.

Step 1 – Locate the Project template shipped with Visual Studio


Step 2 – Edit the VS-Template file


Step 3 – Edit the CS-project file


Step 4 – Zip and “install” the new template


Step 5 – Consume it

The next time you start Visual Studio 2010 and do File – New project, you will now find your now project template under CSharp – Windows.

That’s it. Have fun!


Been meaning to look up how to do this myself... Now I just need to do it. :)
