Or often it happens when someone on another computer has added the references.  Most of the ones in yellow appear to be 3rd party components.
If you either don't have them installed on this machine, or in a different location, then the icons are telling you that you're supposed to have this reference, but that it can't find the actual DLL file.

@David Johnson,

My apology. I just had a chance to respond to you due to weekend.

I took over this .net application to make updates. It was vb 6.0 converted to visual studio 2010. I have to clean up a bunch of forms that is not been used.

The .net framework is version 4.0. Is there higher than this?

Thank you for your help.

I tried to add these missing components but no luck.

What I am doing right now is build this old to new.
