Please provide the error so we might have a clue as to what is wrong.

Without the exact error message, we can only guess. Chances are you didn't set a reference to the Microsoft.Ink.dll file. Without the reference, any namespaces therein won't be known to Visual Studio or the compiler.

Oh, and you have to install the Microsoft Ink SDK to get it.

Read the forum posts at the bottom of that article for the links to get it and the update.

thank you sir Dave Kreskowiak! sorry for the late reply. I will do what you said and will come back when i get a result.

and, im running on Windows 7. Would that be a problem(as for installing the MS Ink SDK, i mean.)
Hi. here i am again. I followed what MR. Dave Kreskowiak said and it worked!! thank you sir!!

So here's what i did:
1. I downloaded Microsoft Ink SDK at
2. Install
3. Open Project menu at Visual Basic
4. On the .NET tab in the Add Reference dialog box, on the components list, select Microsoft Tablet PC API, version 1.7.xxxx.x
5. If its not there, just browse the Microsoft.Ink.dll file from where you installed the Reference. Probably at Program Files-Microsoft Tablet PC Platform SDK-Include.
