I am trying to use the following line of code in Visual Studio 2005:
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Drawing

Sub Base64Convert(ByVal Base64MSG As String, ByRef ID As String, ByRef FName As String, ByRef LName As String)
    'Setup image and get data stream together
    Dim img As System.Drawing.Image
    Dim MS As System.IO.MemoryStream = New System.IO.MemoryStream

    Dim b64 As String = Base64MSG
    Dim b() As Byte

    'Converts the base64 encoded msg to image data
     b = Convert.FromBase64String(b64)
     MS = New System.IO.MemoryStream(b)

   'creates image
    img = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(MS)

   'writes image for displaying
   img.Save(Path.GetDirectoryName(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().CodeBase) & "sig_" & ID & "_" & FName & "_" & LName & ".bmp", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp)
   'cleaning up house
   img.Dispose()
   MS.Close()
   End Sub

This line: img = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(MS)
presents a syntax error saying 'FromStream is not a member of System.Drawing.Image'

When VS 2005 attempts to autocomplete as I type: System.Drawing.Image.
It only presents 3 choice, which are: Equals, FromHBitMap, and ReferenceEquals

Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?

Thanks much.
