Target Windows XP from .NET 5

I have come back to Visual Studio after a along absence and so many things haver changed. I'm developing in a 64 bit environment and want tp target a Word application that will run on 32 bit Windows XP. The 32-bit issue is not a problem but the resulting Windows 32 bit build does not run on the target.. This is reasonable since I'm using .NET 5. I recall that I was able to select the .NET version that I could use to build a target.

I have tested the resulting build on the target by copying the build folder and simply running the executable, but this gives me a permissions error on the target.

Any help would be great.

Windows XP reached end of life years ago, and since then no new technologies from Microsoft will run on that dead platform, so what you observed about .NET 5 is by design and expected. If you really want to support XP, use legacy technologies please (such as .NET Framework 4.0).
