Hello Experts,

I have a Visual Studio 2008 project (C#) that will  not compile.

I am getting the following error:

Warning      1      Referenced assembly 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\vjslib.dll' targets a different processor than the application.      

Does anyone know how to rectify this?

Thanks!

Is that dll locked by another process?

Did you try closing VS, reopening and compiling again?

Hmm - how can I tell if another process is causing this?

I did try closing and re-opening VS but same thing.

In Task Manager, can you see the processes running?

Do you have other 2008 projects that compile or is this the only one that doesn't?

Yes  other C# VS studio ptojects compile just fine.

The one that won't compile is actually an exact copy of one that will (compile) with one change. It is an SQL server data driven application. I am connecting to the same database on a different SQL server instance via a different ODBC connection. I have done this quite a bit and never had problems.

Any ideas?

Can you change the ODBC to the same one that's working and see if it will compile? just as a test (I doubt it's related tho)

What is your target CPU?

This is how you get to it in VS2010 :  go to your Project Properties, go to Compile, Advanced Compile Option

Compare the one that works with the one that doesn't

I have to say I don't know and you can click "request attention" to see if others can help.

Since you copied and created another project...I'm guessing there's a conflict with that dll.

All good suggestions - Something was corrupted in this solution. I made a new copy of the same solution and it compiles fine.
