  • Question

  • User891608689 posted

    The sample code on the above page produces 79 errors, at the bottom of the page is the following message, which I assume is answered somewhere, but I can't find the answer anywhere!

    I'm getting 79 errors all similar to this Edit

                Error    1    Type 'System.Web.Security.MembershipProvider' in assembly 'System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' has been forwarded to assembly 'System.Web.ApplicationServices'.

    Did you try adding a reference to system.web.applicationservices?

    Yes, but I don't know how to do that, please be just a bit more specific.

    Imports System.Web.ApplicationServices is obviously not correct.

    Can't see why that would be missing from the sample code anyway.

    Hello thepoober:)

    I think you should refer "System.Web.ApplicationServices.dll" into your proj before you use Import "System.Web.ApplicationServices".

    Please right click the gray folder called "References……" and choose "Add Reference....", and then choose "System.Web.ApplicationServices".

    Then you can import it by using:

    Import System.Web.ApplicationServices

    Ok, reference added, but imports line with  "system.web." will not auto complete so reference not found as indicated by the following error:


    Warning 1 Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'System.Web.ApplicationServices' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found. Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member. Make sure the imported element name doesn't use any aliases. C:\Users\Barry\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\WebSites\WebSite6\App_Code\Class1.vb 15 9 C:\...\WebSite6\

    any further advice??

    I've imported the namespace and everything goes well with me....

    Which kind of application are you using? WinForm or WebForm or WebSite?

    I am using WebSite (web site), although I tried WebForm (project) but it did not seem to have the reference or could not place it.

    I don't know the sample you are referring to, but I'm pretty sure you need to install WCF (Windows Communication Foundation" to have those namespaces.  Can you install WCF and test?  HTH

    Done, doesn't seem to make any difference. Same 79 errors as before.

    In the first post you mention a sample that you are using and refer to "the above page".  Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see the sample you are referring to.  Can you reply with a link to the sample you are using?

    Check if your project is using .NET Framework 4.0. It is common problem that if it is set as Framework 3.5 than you can not see references from Framework 4.0.
