The type or namespace name 'HtmlAgilityPack' could not be found

Sorry for the newbie question. I added a

using HtmlAgilityPack;
to the class and included the dll in the bin directory yet I still get this error.

Have you added a reference in your project to the HAP dll or HAP project?

Dang. I thought having it in the bin was enough...thanks!!!

Only if it's a web site type of project. For everything else, it must be referenced.

I am getting this same error and I have checked and implemented your solution above but the error is still there. It would really help if you could please advise.


Compiler Error Message: CS0246: The type or namespace name 'HtmlAgilityPack' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)


Many thanks,
