If I reference a .net 1.1 component from my .net 2.0 project would the 1.1 component run on the .net 2.0 CLR would this cause any compatibility problems

Thanks

Should work fine. E.g. the managed DirectX wrapper for .NET 1.1 is adviced to be used in .NET 2.0 (when not using XNA).

Yes, the 1.1 component would run with the 2.0 CLR. There's certainly a possible compatibility problem although pretty unlikely. Check out the full list of breaking changes between 2.0 and 1.1
