Where can I locate Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities namespace?

Dear experts.
I am trying to build some code for checking if the current sharepoint user is inside of the specific AD group. The code should be for Sharepoint2010. I've found this article http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_27844527.html.
The solution in the article uses SPUtility class which should be inside the Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities namespace.
I tried to add reference in the Visual Studio 2013 but I couldn't find this namespace in the Framework Assemblies. How can I locate it or what am I missing? Should I install something?
Help would be appreciated.
Michal

The obvious question - Have you got MS Sharepoint installed on this PC ?

As a rule, this sort of SharePoint development is usually done within a virtual machine that has SharePoint installed. You should follow this approach.

A single server install covers almost all the bases.

I tend to use VMWare Workstation as the virtual host, but HyperV would be fine.

Do you have an MSDN subscription that allows you to download the Server OS and SharePoint ISOs?

Thank you for your suggestion. The sharepoint is installed on the same machine as the Visual studio 2013. There is the Microsoft.Sharepoint namespace available but not Microsoft.Sharepoint.Utilities in the Visual Studio references. If I try to add Microsoft.Sharepoint.dll I got notification that it is already added. There is something else what I am missing.
Yes, all software inside this develpment virtual machine is from MSDN. The sharepoint is deployed in full mode (sharepoint 2010 standard + SQL server 2008 R2 standard).
Michal.

Then you should already have the necessary requirements.

In C# you could use
using Microsoft.Sharepoint;
using Microsoft.Sharepoint.Utilities;   //to access the classes directly

or
using Microsoft.Sharepoint;
....
in code
Utilities.xxxx  //to explicitly call the class in the Utilities sub namespace

My mistake was, that I was searching for the namespace in the VS 2013 References Manager in Assemblies Framework. I don't know the reason why it isn't listed there if the other sub-namespaces are there (e.g. Microsoft.Sharepoint.WorkflowActions). Nevertheless manually adding sub-namespace Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities in the solution (.cs file) solved my problem.
Thank you Andy.
