Some info on
1.1 Compatibility
"Sandcastle for .NET 1.1 One note, I was able to get Sandcastle to generate help for a .NET
1.1 application, which is a very important developer scenario I hope
they don’t forget about
. However, Sandcastle linked the 1.1 help up to
the Framework 2.0 XML help for the .NET Framework BCL (Base Class Library) by
default. If you change the sandcastle.config to refer to
files="%SystemRoot%Microsoft.NETFrameworkv1.1.4322*.xml" /> (line 48 in
this CTP)
it appears to link up nicely for 1.1 apps even though Sandcastle
uses .NET 2.0 for its reflection." …. For more
