Visual Studio 2017 VB COM object Windows 7 compatible?

Visual Studio 2017 VB COM object Windows 7 compatible?

I recently installed VS 2017 and went to create a COM object project and was notified the minimum supported OS would be a build of Windows 10. Is that in fact the case, or might it still work with Windows 7? If I develop on a Win 7 box would it just be a matter of what does the compiling? I don't understand how I can develop on a Win 7 box but have it not be supported at the same time...

Thank you!

It probably depends on the version of .net framework. If you open the properties, which version of .net framework does the target specify? Try specifying something like 4.5.2.
