Can't compile the Async CTP Refresh Sample RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't compile any of the Async CTP samples.

    I got this error message whenever I try to compile the sample "Cannot find Task-related types. Are you missing a reference to 'AsyncCtpLibrary.dll' ?"


    Somebody, please help me.

  • Sorry for the incomplete question.

    Actually the AsyncCtpLibray is in the reference list.

    I also had manually removed the reference and added it back, but it doesn't solve the problem.

    First, fire up one of the sample projects that came with the CTP.  If, the sample does not run, uninstall and re-install the CTP.  If the sample runs the CTP is installed properly.  Manually edit your project project file and change

     <Reference Include="AsyncCtpLibrary, Version=1.0.3951.36518, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35, processorArchitecture=MSIL">


     <Reference Include="AsyncCtpLibrary">


    Don't ask me how I knew to do that.

  • If the samples are not working, something is wrong with the installation. The main reason I saw so far, is because the first CTP was not uninstalled properly. It may require uninstalling SP1 first. You can read more about it in this blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/lucian/archive/2011/04/13/async-ctp-refresh-installation.aspx

  • Thanks for your answer.

    It's solved now.

    I just uninstall the CTP and reinstall it again, as mentioned in this link " http://blogs.msdn.com/b/lucian/archive/2011/04/13/async-ctp-refresh-installation.aspx".

    But I didn't need to uninstall the VS2010 SP1.
