My web page work in VS2005 dev server, but not in IIS. I have a lot of other WebPages that run well in IIS with asp.net 2.x. The problem is that my custom made class and namespace won't work.... why?

Do the project have a reference to the namespace in the web.config file (ASP.NET 2.0 assumed)?

Because with 2.0, namespaces are stored in the web.config file, so you need to replicate that for the remote machine.

Here's an example from one of mine:

...

<pages>
 <namespaces>
   <add namespace="Microsoft.VisualBasic"/>
   <add namespace="System.Data"/>
   <add namespace="System.Drawing"/>
 </namespaces>

</pages>

</system.web>

This is how my web.config looks like. I tried to add it and it compiles, but I get the same error as before.

I also tried this:
    <pages>
      <controls>
        <add namespace="Microsoft.Web.UI" assembly="Microsoft.Web.Atlas" tagPrefix="atlas"/>
        <add namespace="Microsoft.Web.UI.Controls" assembly="Microsoft.Web.Atlas" tagPrefix="atlas"/>

      </controls>
      <namespaces>
        <add namespace="util"/>
      </namespaces>
    </pages>

I don't understand why you are adding
   <add namespace="Microsoft.VisualBasic"/>
   <add namespace="System.Data"/>
   <add namespace="System.Drawing"/>
in the web.config

this in a cs file does also work in my web pages in ASP.NET 2.0.
using Microsoft.VisualBasic;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;

Did I say that the web site was C#--it is VB.NET.  You can always add Microsoft.VisualBasic, if you want VB.NET-specific code, but that is a different question.

Are you saying that the web.config file is the one on the server?

In VS2005 it is possible to add a web.config file to the web page project. This file is being run at the server. However it is not necessary to use a web.config if it is just a simple asp.net 2.0 web site without atlas and such things...

There are so many things stored in the web.config file now, like references and namespaces, that I would just keep one in there.

If you have the Web Site model, then just drop one into the folder.  If you have the Web Application model, and a project, then you can add a new item, and select configuration file.

Have you tried just adding a reference the normal way?

Right Click Project --> Add Reference --> Browse --> Find util.dll and select it.

GavinMannion: I can't find the util.dll file in the App_Code folder or Bin folder. Looks like its being stored some strange place.

How did you create it....

Is it part of a different project? If so you need to publish that website (if it's a web) first then it will create a bin folder in that ones project with the dll.

No it's not a part of another project. It is a website.
Ok. I see. So it's not making dll's when just building it?

No 2005 does not create the dll for a website until the site is published....

I presume you got it working now??
