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
<data
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
