Windows Service, Class Library, .NET

I am planning to write a windows service which will download every day at a certain time, some files from an external web server -

I created a solution with a project for a command line version, a class library, and a service -

I plan to have the service, and the command line both use the class library to actually do the heavy lifting of the work - the command line is mostly to ensure that the class works properly.


Now, it seems:
This does work, but I am unable to see myReq.Method or anything, I get errors,

can I not use this in the class library? If so, what other solutions do I have?

myReq.Method does not work, nor does anything show up in intellisense for it
HttpWebRequest myReq =
(HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.ding.com");

Open in new window

Make sure you have a

using System.Net;

at the top of code files referencing WebRequest objects, or use long-hand

System.Net.HttpWebRequest myReq = (System.Net.HttpWebRequest)System.Net.WebRequest.Create(...);
