I downloaded some open source library for my C++/CLI project. Let me call it 'library'. It is written completely in C#. The library compiles and builds fine into some library.dll. The samples provided along with it work well also. The problem starts when I try to use this library for my project.
I add a reference path in the project properties in Visual Studio 2008, pointing to this dll. It seems everything is fine now, as IntelliSence that pops up after :: or -> symbols presents all possible sub-namespaces, classes, data types, etc.
Unfortunately, when I add
using namespace library;
to my code, the compilation error appears that says "namespace with this name does not exist".
What's wrong? I integrated lots of other open source libraries in my projects this way, and there had been no error so far.
Please help. This library seems very useful for my project and I don't want to miss this chance. Thanks to all.
