I have an Orchard CMS project that runs fine using web matrix, however when I open it in visual studio and try to build the solution, I get errors telling me the references are not correct. I have no idea where to even start troubleshooting this.

Please help point me in the right direction.

"Hayden" seems to be a part of your solution, so just check in your main project:

- go to Project properties, then References
- check the paths: missing references will have 0.0.0.0 as a version
- if that's the case, remove offending reference and add it afresh, selecting from Project tab

At this point I have 2 projects under 1 solution. What I did was r click on the project "Orchard" located above "hayden.ContentAuthorization", then selected "property pages". The first screen was "references". So I clicked on "add", then browsed to the solution file of that project. Once that was done, I attempted a build. Now I am getting this error:

"Error      1      Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

The was I understand Orchard to work is that each module is its own solution. So all of these custom modules will need to be added as references, however I would like to get 1 working first. See screen shot

ok, then inspect hayden.ContentAuthorization project for its references to see that all is set and available

you mentioned that you selected a solution for hayden project - is it correct ? I reckon it's just a terminology mistake because you should select a project, not the solution.

if you could post the sources it'd make the life much easier :)

Yes, I made a mistake. (See attached screen shot) I added a reference to the project.

I am happy to post anything you need. Please clarify what you would like me to do.

Ideally, post the whole project so we can just get it compiled.

Alternatively, if I were you, I'd create simple project in the same solution where I'd reference that "hayden" project and create one of the objects from it. This should compile. Then you could compare any settings related to referenced component and see what's different.

Please let me know as soon as you have pulled this down.

Source Code: ftp://68.14.213.228/Violet/OrchardProjectSln.zip
username=vsmith
password=CIS_123456 (CIS is all caps)

I know it will work with linking an empty project together, however the issue is that several people were developing custom modules for Orchard, and the control of adding them to 1 solution was not there. So I think what will need to happen is each individual project will need to be added as a reference. If you can just show me how to do 1, I can do the rest.

I've just used exact sources you uploaded. What was/is the issue now is one of the modules (Contrib) which is not used in one of the cshtml files but then it generates temp cs file (a-la App_Web_kjhkjhkj.cs) the same namespace cannot be found.

I don't think Contrib.DateTimeField is being used. You can just remove it.

well, I see it in the app_data\dependencies\dependencies.compiled.xml, but I am not sure it is being used by the code.

I figured it out. What I needed to do was download the entire Orchard source code, then add each module to the Modules folder above Orchard.Web
