error message "Could not load type" for a .NET 1.1 asp project converted to VS 2008 .NET 3.5

I am working with some code that was developed in the year 2004. So I suppose that it is .NET 1.1 code.  
I created a visual studio 2008 project but am getting an error when I try and build the code. . One obvious problem appears to be that the attribute "CodeFile" is being used. Please check out the code I am providing and tell me if you can spot the problem which is creating the bug. Here is the error message I am getting:
Error      13 Could not load type 'CaptchaImage.JpegImage'.      C:\America\JpegImage.aspx      

Here is the .aspx code:
<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="JpegImage.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="CaptchaImage.JpegImage" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >

All you have to do is change the line 1 in the aspx files: replace the keyword Codebehind="..." with Codefile="...", also do the following:

1. Rename the namespace CaptchaImage for anything else, because there is a class that hass the same name CaptchaImage. You must change namespace also in the aspx files (line 1) from Inherits="CaptchaImage._Default" to Inherits="TheNewNamespace._Default"

2. Change the declaration of classes from public class ClassName to public partial class ClassName, ie: public partial class JpegImage

3. Move class CaptchaImage to App_code folder.

4. Rename the form in JpegImage.aspx to form1 or anything else.

5. Remove the META tags in aspx files.
