Hello all,

I have used (NameValueCollection)ConfigurationSettings.GetConfig("customSection") in my code yet VS2005 is stating:

"System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.GetConfig(string) is obsolete. It has been replaced by System.Configuration!System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.GetSection"

Yet when I look into the System.Configuration using intellisense, there is no ConfigurationManager!!!! Can anyone shed any light on what I am missing?
