Can the Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles and Microsoft.Office.Server.Audience namespaces be used/referenced using the Foundation version of SharePoint 2010?  I can't find this DLL/namespace on my system.  I am running SharePoint 2010 Foundation on a Windows 7 operating system.

I don't see why .UserProfiles would be there, since User Profiles are a SharePoint Server feature.

Is there something special I need to do to get it into my project?  I see that it is supposed to exist at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\ISAPI, but I only have the Microsoft.Office.Server DLL there....

Ok, just re-read your post.  So User Profiles are not part of the Foundation edition?

I thought I'd write this up for anyone who has a request to create an anonymous whistle-blower-type submission form created using SharePoint 2010 (this would probably work the same for 2013). It's not 100% fool-proof but it's as close as you can get…
