Why does visual studio think my dll is a friend.  I have built and successfully compiled a dll using visual studio 2008 and i have another dll that needs to reference it.  I have added it to the reference folder through the GUI, along with other dlls that work mind you.  In the code when i try to call it it says it is private.  Intellisense doesnt even find the class.  So did I add this one dll that i built incorrectly?

Does the class that try to write the code in has a Using NameSpace.Something?
(So your classes will appear in the Intellisense without you having to write the namespace before each class/enum you try to use)

You either nested your classes within another namespace, or you nested your classes within another class. Nested classes are, by default, set to private. Make everything you wish to access outside of the DLL as "public" or "protected".
