Hi all,

I'm not able to use my files in the App_WebReferences folder in my project. They cant be found when I try to access them.

I have no problem access the classes in App_Code folder.

I'm  working with VB on this project, on another project where I have used C#, it works with no problem...

some extra info

Add and Remove Web References

It looks like the aap_webreferences folder is not recognized by the projects as being the App_webreferences folder.
can you send me the full error message you receive?

When I try to call Account()

Dim test As New testPV.Account()

The error is:

Did you just copy the references folder from the working app to non working app?

@CodeCruiser

I've tried that :)

But also to add web reference the right way.... I get this error: addWebRefernece
I have full control on the folder(s) so I dont know why I cant access it.

Looking at the screenshots and your comment :

When creating a webReference you're not going directly to the folder but through your local IIS.
Can you check the folowing settings ?
* What is the account that connects to the webRefence path (local site - app pool)
* does that account have enough rights to the folder.

regards

I made the reference from an external url instead, and it worked better.
I award you for your efforts, thanks.
