Problem with Redemption Component

Hopefully someone here is familiar with the redemption component that helps you interface with outlook. I am using vb.net 2005 and have added redemption.dll as a reference to my project. However I get this error with the code below. Any ideas? It seems to be self explanatory, but I see the code I have at the bottom all over the internet, but none of the example sites show what namespace Application.Session.MAPIOBJECT() resides in.

'Session' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.Application'.      

-------------------- Begin Code --------------------

Dim objSession
Dim Account, Accounts
       
objSession = CreateObject("Redemption.RDOSession")
objSession.MAPIOBJECT = Application.Session.MAPIOBJECT()

-------------------- End Code --------------------

You need to add a reference to the Outlook namespace.
Right click your project and click 'add reference', then select Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

Thanks for the help so far. I did as you said below and it seems to fix the previous error but now I get a new one and I'm not  sure what to do about it. Any ideas?

Error: Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference.

-------------------- Begin Code --------------------

Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim objSession
        Dim Account, Accounts

        objSession = CreateObject("Redemption.RDOSession")
        objSession.MAPIOBJECT = Application.Session.MAPIOBJECT()
        Accounts = objSession.Accounts
        For Each Account In Accounts
            Debug.Print(Account.Name)
        Next
    End Sub
End Class

-------------------- End Code --------------------

I figured it out, here's the code:

-------------------- Begin Code --------------------

Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim objSession
        Dim Account, Accounts
        Dim objAccount

        Dim OutlookApp As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Application = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Application()

        objSession = CreateObject("Redemption.RDOSession")
        objSession.MAPIOBJECT = OutlookApp.Session.MAPIOBJECT()
        Accounts = objSession.Accounts
    End Sub
End Class

-------------------- End Code --------------------
