SSIS 2012 dts.variable not declared

Hi All,
I am migrating an existing package, working packages, from SQL2005 to SQL2012.
I have variables that are passed/used in a Script Task.  My problem is the Dts.Variables statement does not recognize the "dts.".
Says it's not declared.  I don't understand why it works find on my production server (SQL2005) and not here.
I also tried finding the assemblies needed and one article mentioned Microsoft.SqlServer.ScriptTask; but I can't find this.

Below is the my first problem string....
Dim File_Name$ = DTS.Variables("User::DB_File_Name").Value.ToString

Any help would be greatly appreciated it.

Make sure User::DB_File_Name is listed in either ReadOnlyVariables or ReadWriteVariables, then..

Dim File_Name as String
SET File_name = DTS.Variables("DB_File_Name").Value.ToString

Think I got it.
I needed to add the following to the class of the file......

'ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.  Do not change the name, attributes,
    'or parent of this class.
    <Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.ScriptTask.SSISScriptTaskEntryPointAttribute()> _
    <System.CLSCompliantAttribute(False)> _
    Partial Public Class ScriptMain
        Inherits Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.ScriptTask.VSTARTScriptObjectModelBase
