I am having problems adding Crystal Decision and Microsoft Office references. I have the DLLs etc, I add them but nothing seems to work. As if they were not there.
Doing the usual Project Add References etc.

An example is

Imports CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine
Imports CrystalDecisions.ReportSource
Imports CrystalDecisions.Shared

I get the message....

Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'CrystalDecisions etc' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found.

Any ideas where I am going wrong. It is the usual, it used to work. Tried with both VB.Net 2005 and 2008.

Thanks in advance

Using Imports does not add a reference to the DLL in the project - it just means you don't need to type the full namespace.
Check you have added the appropriate project references in the Solution Explorer pane.
