I have an ASP.NET 4 project that was working and now it not working.

I'm using Visual Studio Professional 2013 (12.0.21005.1) and when I try to rebuild a particular ASP.NET 4.0 Web Application I get the following errors:

Type 'StringBuilder' is not defined.
Type 'List' is not defined.
Type 'Exception' is not defined.
Type 'iTemplate' is not defined.
Type 'SmptClient' is not defined.
Type 'System.IO.FileInfo' is not defined.
Type 'System.Web.UI.Page' is not defined.

etc.

Also, when I try adding a reference to System I get an error stating:
The Web site is already referencing the assembly 'System'

How do I fix this?  I have several Web Applications and this is the only one behaving this way.

Right click on your solution and click cCean Solution then build.
If this doesn't help, close your project, open your bin directory using windows explorer and delete all dlls from there then rebuild your project

good luck

Thanks!  I'll try it next time.  For the sake of expediency, I downloaded the website; replacing my development code.  Everything is working fine now.
