I'm trying to use the ManagementObject object to get information about my servers hard drive.  I added the namespace using System.Management;  But it still errors saying:
Error      11      The type or namespace name 'ManagementObject' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)      C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\SH_Source\Admin_Pages\Home.aspx.cs      92      1      C:\...\SH_Source\

It almost seems like my .NET framework doesn't include it, but it should I'd think.  Any ideas?

Are you sure you have a reference added to "System.Management"? Just because the namespace is available, doesn't mean you're looking at the one you intend  = )

You need to add a Reference to System.Management dll.

I have: using System.Management;  in my code so I'd think it'd work.
Is that what you meant by adding a reference to System.Management dll?  Or do I make the reference in a config file or something?

Here's the line of code that fails:
ManagementObject disk = new

No. Go to Project-->Add Reference-->System.Management.dll
