Circular dependency with DAL and BLL.

Whoops, the second paragraph should have continued...

then you should be able to simply re-add the references.

The easy answer would be to refactor your code to comply with the Isolation of Concerns principle; more specifically to remove any BLL dependencies from your DAL.

In any event though, make sure your references are still good in both projects by ensuring there are no exclamation point icons when you expand your References folder. If the references don't exist (or they are broken as indicated by the exclamation point.)

Another quick way to check is to add a 'using' statement at the top of each .cs file and see if your namespace(s) show up in the context dialog.

I am still not convince what happens if we make a common layer instead of have two assemblies.
