    Hi, 

    I copied the wbsite files from our hosting provider as we are trying to bring this in house. After downloading the files I opened the files as <g class="gr_ gr_279 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar only-ins doubleReplace replaceWithoutSep" id="279" data-gr-id="279">website</g> as it does not have a .sln solution. After opening the file in VS, it asked me to create a .sln, I clicked yes. It created the .sln at a different folder Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Transfers. Now when I try to build the website I get two errors which I can't resolve. 

    Error 1 

    Could not load Type <g class="gr_ gr_600 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" id="600" data-gr-id="600">PortalAdmin</g>.Webform1

    The website is written in VB and I come from a C# background. 

    Under the root directory I have got a folder called "Admin" and Under "Admin" I have got a Bin folder. Under the Bin folder, I have got two files "PortalAdmin.dll" and "<g class="gr_ gr_907 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" id="907" data-gr-id="907">PortalAdmin</g>.<g class="gr_ gr_912 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace gr-progress" id="912" data-gr-id="912">pdb</g>" 

    When I click on the error it redirects me to Admin/Emails.aspx. 

    <%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="Emails.aspx.vb" Inherits="PortalAdmin.WebForm1"%>


    Error 2 

    Keyword "Global" is not a valid identifier. 

    When I click on the error it redirects me to Admin/Global.asax.vb:

    Imports System.Web
    Imports System.Web.SessionState

    Public Class Global
    Inherits System.Web.HttpApplication

    The Global keyword is underlined with a curly blue line. 


    Any suggestions to resolve these two errors are welcome. 

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Akbar123,

    According to your description, I suggest you to use  decompile tool to translate PortalAdmin.dll  to class , so  you could check whether the  namespace PortalAdmin  and class Webform1 in this  namespace exists.

    Here is the link to download the tool,I hope it could help you.
