How can a console application get the current URL? URL of what? A console app does not have a url. HttpContext is in a web application, very different than a console app.

Can you please explain how you are using console application to Get Web Page URL?

Which URL you are trying to get from console application?

The error you are receiving due to you not using the correct .NET profile. There is a .NET client profile (light) and a full profile (complete .NET functionality). This is something you can set in your project's properties. From what you posted I gather the setting made your project use ".NET Client Profile".
A competely other thing is that you expect HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri to have a sensible value. The program you wrote is a Console application, so what would you expect the URI to be?

Anyway, to get rid of the compilation error you'll have to change the .NET profile from client to the full version in your project's settings.
