ASP.NET Error:BC30451 Issue

Hello Experts,

I just recently began creating ASP.NET pages and am running into what seems to be a newbie issue and I am sure it has an easy fix.  I have created a few pages to send an email using the SMTP settings in the web.config and all is well when run in localhost env.  The Email is sent and I am sure the code is fine.  

So, when I copy the folders using the CopyToWeb tool to my live web server to just test, learn and run remotely, I get a Compiler Error Message: BC30451.  Explaining that a class used to intitialize and create an email is not found.


Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.

Compiler Error Message: BC30451: Name 'MailHelper' is not declared.

Source Error:

Line 5:      Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Line 6:  
Line 7:          MailHelper.SendMailMessage("PARAMS")
Line 8:      End Sub
Line 9:  End Class
Source File: E:\webs\~\SendEmail.aspx.vb    Line: 7

I have seen people with this exact error and they spoke of the IDE automatically creating this coorelation.

Am I not supposed to CopyToWeb and expect the files to just work?  

Any Help OR Ideas?  I have reviewed a multitude of Questions asked on this site and others to no avail.

Thanks in advance.

did you also copy MailHelper component to the server?
show me where do you declare it in your code

Imports MailHelper
Partial Class SendEmail
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

    End Sub
End Class

By Declare do you mean Dim MailHelper as New MailHelper()??

And yes, the MailHelper.vb file was copied with the entire Folder.

I will be absent until tomorrow after this post.  Thanks for your help!

Any Ideas?

I was reading something about a precompiled vb file that occurs after a publish routine is run.  Could it be that i am missing this file?  When I publish the site then 'copy' (not CopyToWeb tool) the entire folder i get a App_Web issue?


Parser Error

This is an entirely different error.  Any Ideas?

Thanks for your help!
