You cannot arbitrarily change the Target Framework in Smart Device Projects like you can for standard .NET projects.
You need to upgrade the project via the Project->Upgrade Project option like so:



The project will then be compiled against the latest version of Compact Framework, here it is 3.5 for my machine.

Note:- you may need to change the available devices/emulators by choosing 'Change Target Platform' from the same menu.

If an exception occurs in the BackgroundWorker control's DoWork method it will get wrapped in to the RunWorkerCompletedEventArgs object in the RunWorkerCompleted method.
Checking the Error property of the RunWorkerCompletedEventArgs tells us if an exception occurred on the BackgroundWorker's thread. By re-throwing the exception in the RunWorkerCompleted method it will then be on the calling (GUI) thread where it can be then be dealt with accordingly:

private void backgroundWorker1_RunWorkerCompleted(object sender, RunWorkerCompletedEventArgs e) { if (e.Error != null) throw e.Error; }
The error check should always be the first statement in the RunWorkerCompleted method.
