have you BUILT the DLL for the class library that you are trying to import?  Have you added it as a Reference?

1. I rightclicked on the solutions explorer
2. select new project and select class library.

How fo I build the DLL for the class  library and reference to it? Could you please help me?

You are doing well so far then. You have two options. First, make sure you build the class library project so that you have a dll. Then:

1) In the project that imports the class library, right click on references, add reference, then select the right most tab - I think it says projects - and select the class library project.

2) Add a new reference as in #1, but instead of using the third tab, stay on the first. Click the Browse button, and browse to the class library folder location. In the /BIN directory under the project is your dll. Just select it so you have a reference to it.

Now you should be good to go.
