System.Drawing in XNA

Hello experts,

I am writing a simple game for Win7 for mobile phones using XNA.

I try to re- use file with methods created for software working in Windows environment.

I added it to my XNA project but following lines give me error messages:

using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

I get error: "The type or namespace name 'Drawing' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

What do I do wrong?
Maybe it is not possible to use these namespaces in XNA application?

Thank you

panJames

You can't use System.Drawing for XNA because part of its target is the XBox which does not support those libraries.
