I have an aspx page that is going to display the rss feed content generated on the page load event from the backend sql server db.

when I try to build the project, i get the following error:
Error      1      Reference required to assembly 'System.Xml, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7cec85d7bea7798e' containing the implemented interface 'System.Xml.Serialization.IXmlSerializable'. Add one to your project.      C:\.....\NewsRss.aspx.vb      97      42      News

on the following lines with "Atom10FeedFormatter" and "Rss20FeedFormatter" :
            Dim outputSettings As New XmlWriterSettings()
            outputSettings.Indent = True
            Dim feedWriter As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(Response.OutputStream, outputSettings)

            If bAtomOut Then     
                Dim atomFormatter As New Atom10FeedFormatter(myFeed)
            ElseIf bRssOut Then
                Dim rssFormatter As New Rss20FeedFormatter(myFeed)
            End If
myFeed is the sydicationfeed object with the record values

My web project has a reference to:
Name:                      system.xml
location:                  C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\System.Xml.dll
runtime version:      v2.0.50727

I think this is exactly what it is looking for, i can't figure out how to resolve this required reference.  

Any help is greatly appreciated
