Q

Why can't I type "Imports System.DirectoryServices" in my VB.NET program?

Any idea why Intellisence won't let me type "Imports System.DirectoryServices" in my VB.NET program? I'm running

on WinXP Pro and everything else I do in VS.NET works fine. I tried installing ads.exe from Microsoft (adsi 2.5 setup), but it blows off with:

Have you set a reference to the System.DirectoryServices.dll in your VB project? In order to reference these classes, a reference must first be set.
