CRASH WARNING: SnapStream Beyond TV doesn't work at ALL with .NET Framework 2.0 BETA, fix here.
Today's warning to the PVR user, SnapStream's Beyond TV doesn't work at ALL with .NET Framework 2.0 BETA. It's a 1.1 app, and .NET 2.0 is automatically being used when it loads and it crashes stupendously. Since I have .NET 1.1 on my box, I'm surprised it automatically used the newer Framework. I need to refresh myself on the rules.
To fix it, add files
and to each add these lines:
<supportedRuntime version="v1.1.4322" />
NOTE: This fix (with the appropriate my.exe.config) will likely fix other apps that may start acting strange after you install Visual Studio.NET Express or the Community Edition.

Although, why didn't it just use 1.1? It's on my machine, it's a 1.1 app, it says 1.1 in the registry keys (COM Interop).
I used Process Explorer to see that it was running (and crashing) with 2.0 - so am I forgetting some basic rule of .NET and framework versioning?
