Cannot add App_code .cs file to the solution
Posted on 2011-03-08
I have a Shared code file database.cs in App_code folder. The solution was built on .NET 2.0 framework. Everything was working fine, untill few minutes ago, I copied the files, created a new folder and opened the folder as a new Web Site. When I was prompted to upgrade from .NET 2.0 to .NET 4.0, I said Yes.
Now for some reason, database.cs file in App_code folder is not getting included in the solution. When I include the namespace defined inside it abc.xyz.data, while debugging, I get an error Error 7 The type or namespace name 'NeboWeb' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
Seems like .cs files stored in App_code file is not recognized in other files of the solution.
This thing is not just happening in the new project I created by copying the old working Website folder (straight from inetpub), but even the original folder, which I didn't even touched is not working either.
Any idea, why is this happening !
