I have a asp.net 2.0 project that is getting tons of errors due to references being missing for System.Drawing and System.Data
if i had
Imports System.Drawing
Imports System.Data
to each vb class (behind code) that references the functions, it corrects it

however, I do not want to modify over 1,200 files to make this change.  I attempt to just Add Reference
to those 2, so after clicking on Properites of the web project, under the References tree, i clicked on Add Reference.  After selecting one of the two, it brought me back to the screen where it lists the current references, however, they did not appear in the list
no matter how many times i've tried to add them, they simply wont add, with no error message

am i doing something wrong?

That shouldn't be considered an "alternate" way, it should be "the" way.
