    Adding Reference to COM component

    Hi, Was wondering how I add a reference to a COM component. Have tried importing the relevant namespace from the DLL:
    which I have placed in the directory where the .aspx file is located at.

    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    <%@ import Namespace="Interop.MSUtil" %>
    <script runat="server">

    void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


    using LogQuery = Interop.MSUtil.LogQueryClassClass;



    The Compiler Error Message: CS0246: The type or namespace name 'Interop' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
    Source File: index.aspx Line: 2

    Would be grateful if somebody could shed some light on the problem

    Legacy COM?
    You need to add the reference via the project manager, I think. I know you can't just import it like this. It's a bit of a pain. I've seen stuff about some sort of wrapper people use.

    This belongs in the .net forum, not classic asp.

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
