Assuming you are writing a ASP .NET Web application ?

Your project should reference System.Web

Response.Redirect is found in System.Web.HttpResponse

Although you should not have to Import anything if your Web project is correctly set up

Assuming that this is a web app, and that you're trying to redirect from a class file or something that doesn't have the context neatly wrapped in, it's the CURRENT response you need access to, via the HttpContext object:

If you have created a webproject in the visual studio and running under then you do not need to import anything to execute response.redirect. Your project might have some setting problems, if you are using response.redirect inside the class which is consumed by application, remove it from there and refactor your code in a way so that response.redirect is in the page code behind and not in the class

@dost2010, there's no reason to pull a Response.Redirect out of a class file.

The built in Response.Redirect you have in a Page code-behind is referencing exactly the same object as
System.Web.HttpContext.Current as written above, it's just already wired up for you.

You are all correct.  This was user error.  Duh, I had created a normal Windows project and not a WEB project.
