Class Library failled to open

Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help. A project with an Output type of Class Library cannot be started directly. I not very sure how to fix this. I have attached the print screen of the error message when I load the project in  Visual Web Developer.

Well, just like the error message says you can't directly start a Class Library (it's just a .dll file). A class library is just a collection of classes, functions, etc. that other programs use.  Sometimes you'll find more than one project in a Visual Studio solution; you might just need to right-click on the correct project and set it as the startup project.

In the example in the picture there are two projects in the solution: "MyClassLibrary" and "WebApplication1".  WebApplication1 uses a method that's in MyClassLibrary.  I can't run MyClassLibrary, the project I want to run is WebApplication1 - so right-click on it, choose "Set as StartUp Project"
