I have a class library and am trying to compile and get the following error:

type 'Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common.Instrumentation.IInstrumentationEventProvider' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common, Version=3.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.

I've installed version 3 of the Enterprise Libraries

I tried to add the reference, but I don't see that assembly listed?

It goes from:
Enterprise Library Caching Data Provider Design
to
Enterprise Library Configuration Application Block Design

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

If you have installed the samples, grab the file from the bin directory of one of them.
Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common.dll
I think I initially had the same issue and had to browse for the file in the <Add Reference> dialogue.

Also try adding the .net reference to
Enterprise Library Shared Library
It appears to actually be the .common.dll file

Thanks for the help.  It was the Enterprise Library Shared Library assembly.  That fixed it.
