HI all,
I'm trying to write an windows phone app for 8.1 and need to access OneDrive to open and save files.
I've read a lot and I'm stuck in the begining with the Live SDK.  I installed it but don't see it in my project.  I tried puting IMPORTS MICROSOFT.LIVE in; but the namespace is not found.

You would need to add a reference to a DLL, before you can use imports.  Since I cannot do WP development on my PC, I would not know where the file is located, but my first guess is that it is in the GAC, and you should see it in the Add Reference dialog.

I installed it via the NuGet Package Manager and it says it is installed for my application yet I can not refrence the namespace, nor do I know what the dll name is for this Live SDK.

Do you have multiple projects?  

Can you show me the project references that you have for the project where you are trying to use the package?

It is possible to install a Nuget package into the wrong project, if you have a lot of projects in the solution.

There is supposed to be a Microsoft.live namespace; but you can see that there isn't.  Also it seems that Windows Phone projects do not have a REFERENCES directory in the Solution Explorer.

When you installed the Nuget package, was there any errors?

If I suspect a problem installing a Nuget package, I use the Package Manager Console, instead of the UI dialog, so you can see if there any errors.

I did not see any errors. I also uninstalled it and reinstalled it.

I think I just got it to work.
I right clicked on the project and selected add reference.  I found that the Live reference was not selected.  Thanks for your patients.  You steered me in the right direction.

One other thing I would like to add for anyone else going through this issue.
It turns out that I also needed to download/install the sdk from the Microsoft website for it to have even shown up in the sdk's to be added as an option.
