Feature 'extension method' cannot be used because it is not part of the ISO-2 C# language specification


  • After upgrading to VS2010 from VS2008, my ASP.NET MVC 2.0 application (v3.5 framework)(manually converted from 1.0) views generate an error for each <%= Html. ..%> directive (the error message is the question title). The errors are shown in the 'error list' view when viewing a page/aspx or control/ascx document in the IDE.

    Any help with this annoyance would be greatly appreciated!
