Hi, I have a Visual Studio 2003 ASP.Net Web app that I have just upgraded to a Web Site in Visual Studio 2010.  In the project I have a vb class module which is inherited by various aspx pages (in the aspx.vb file).  Since upgrading the aspx.vb files can no longer see the class module.  

Has something changed in the way that inheritance is handled in 2010?

I have discovered the problem.  It seems you now have to put Class modules in the App_Code folder otherwise they don't seem to be visible to the aspx.vb files.
