BC30002: Type 'SurveyBLL' is not defined.

I am using .NET 2.0 on a Win2k server. I used the copy web site wizard to copy up the files.

I created a class in the App_Code directory called SurveyBLL and now I get this error when I run the page.
HELP! Everything works fine on the dev server, just not production.

Reference it using NameSpace.ClassName convention. How does the declaration of SurveyBLL look like?

Thanks for the reply, not sure what you mean? I don't have it in a namespace.

Public Class SurveyBLL
  'Code
End Class

This is how I am doing it now, how should I call it?
Dim surveyBLL As New SurveyBLL()

Does App_Code directory exist on the server? Are you deploying your project using aspnet_compiler?

Yes, the App_Code directory is on the server.

I am using Visual Web Developer Express and used "Copy Web Site" to deploy it to the web server.

You will need to add the following directive to your ASPX page:

<%@ Assembly src="SurveyBLL.vb" %>

I added it, but then it gives me an error message
SurveyBLL.vb was not found.

It's in the App_Code folder, do I need to specify that path too?

The references for 2.0 are stored in the web.config file.

I added a web.config file to the web site and now I get a new error :(

I just did "Add new item" and selected Web.Config file, it was the default structure.

I removed the web config file and just took the methods from my surveybll and moved them to the actual pages.

Thanks for your help.
