Problem with namespaces in my T4 templates

I am having trouble getting the T4 template to compile sine it finds a problem with the namespace.

I add a second import after the working one.  

<#@import namespace="System.Collections.Generic" #>
<#@import namespace="RDDBWebAdmin.Models" #>

The error is:

Compiling transformation: The type or namespace name 'RDDBWebAdmin' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

'RDDBWebAdmin' is the project which contains the T4 template. Yet it can not find it.  Know why?


<#@import namespace="System.Collections.Generic" #> 
<# 
Dictionary<string,Type> properties = new Dictionary<string,Type>(); 
properties.Add("Age",typeof(int)); 
properties.Add("Firstname", typeof(string)); 
properties.Add("Surname", typeof(string)); 
#> 
using System; 

public class <#="MyClass"#>{ 
<# foreach(string name in properties.Keys) { #> 
    public <#=properties[name].Name#> <#=name#>{ 
        get; set; 
    } 
<# } #> 
} 

//// Generated code ///////
using System; 

public class MyClass{ 
      public Int32 Age{ 
            get; set; 
      } 
      public String Firstname{ 
            get; set; 
      } 
      public String Surname{ 
            get; set; 
      } 
}

you need to add assembly reference to the assembly like this before the namespace import -

<#@ assembly name="RDDBWebAdmin.dll" #>

Thanks,
