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!

RE: Visual Studio 2017 VB COM object Windows 7 compatible?

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.
