System.Data.Linq not imported

I just installed VS 2012.
In the file <dbname>designer.vb (generated in VS 2010) Visual Studio 2012 displays 100 errors  such as 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is not defined, although System.Data.Linq is present in References.

Additional information:

Make sure that it's referenced in your web.config

<add assembly=“System.Data.Linq, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089“ />

Open in new window


Replace Version with your version of .NET you are using, or the version that is referenced.

This should have been set when you added your reference to your project automatically, but maybe you made some changes to your web.config without knowing.

Thanks for your hint.
According to Reference Manager the version of System.Data.Linq is 4.0.0.0.
I don't know how to verify the PublicKeyToken.
