A priori I can't see a reason why you couldn't do it with an older  
version of Visual Studio. However, the .vcproj files changed format  
rather drastically, so I suspect that you'd have to build your own;  
you would probably not be able to make much use of the v8 files. And  
you have to be careful with the Fortran code, but that is explained in  
the user's manual.

Hope that helps.
