Afternoon all i was hoping someone would be able to help me with this issue:

I have an in-line aspx page that i have written to be a status page for an F5 Load Balancer which needs to reference the system.messaging namespace to do status checks on an MSMQ server i constantly receive the error: CS0234: The type or namespace name 'Messaging' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?).

Would much appreciate any assistance if possible thanks.

In your project, Add Reference, Find System.Messaging, add it, compile again.
The System.Messaging is not included for web application by default, that's why you need to add it.

My apologies i didn't make it clear that this needs to be a stand alone web page

The only work around i could find was the following:

- Create a web.config for the single aspx file that looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <compilation debug="true">
        <add assembly="System.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B77A5C561934E089" />
        <add assembly="System.Data.DataSetExtensions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B77A5C561934E089" />
        <add assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
        <add assembly="System.Xml.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B77A5C561934E089" />
        <add assembly="System.Messaging, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A" />

- ensure that <%@ Import Namespace="System.Messaging" %> is above the page directive.
