I'm trying to use
System.DirectoryServices in a web site project and I'm getting this error:
The type or namespace name 'DirectoryServices' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
My project has a reference to
<add assembly="System.DirectoryServices, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>
And I do have
using System.DirectoryServices in the files where I want to use it.
Does anybody have a clue where to look for the problem?
Is the web-server (IIS or whatever) configured to run the folder as an application (i.e. shows as a cog), and is it using the correct version of ASP.NET? If it is running as 1.1, bits of it might work - but it would fail to find that 2.0 assembly in the 1.1 GAC.
Is this a web site project, or a web application project. With the latter, references are handled via the .csproj - i.e. via the "References" node in Solution Explorer.
