.NET doesn't recognize DirectoryServices namespace

.NET doesn't recognize DirectoryServices namespace

Post by Joe Davi » Thu, 07 Mar 2002 02:20:42

I'm trying to connect via .NET

I have added a reference to "System.DirectoryServices.dll"

Namespace="System.DirectoryServices" %> directive.

No matter what I do, I always get the same error:

CS0234: The type or namespace name 'DirectoryServices'
does not exist in the class or namespace 'System' (are you
missing an assembly reference?)

Is there something that I'm missing?  I've even used
sample code directly

go to your
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\CONFIG\machine.config file and
add this line to the <assemblies> section:

<add assembly="System.DirectoryServices, Version=1.0.3300.0,
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />      

Your will have to stop and restart IIS server for the change to take affect.

Hope that helps,
