Hello all;

I am using TagLib from here: (
I have it working within VS.
However, I am designing a website with it, and I need it to run on the website.

When I created the project within VS, and Referenced the .dll files
It put the dll files inside of:

The Bin folder is also located on the website.

I added all these and they are all grayed out.
Tells me they are not necessary

Imports TagLib
Imports TagLib.IFD
Imports TagLib.IFD.Tags
Imports TagLib.Xmp

I also registered the .dll file with Windows, using the following command.

%windir%\\framework\v2.0.50727\regasm G:\InetPub\wwwroot\Media\WebSite1\Bin\taglib-sharp.dll /codebase

And I still get the error.
Type 'TagLib.File' is not defined.

Any idea's on this would be great.
