I just installed the VS Studio 2008 express version. I can't seem to be able
to use the System.Diagnostics.Process type in a simple program. Any ideas
why?


error I get is:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Process' does not exist in the namespace
'System.Diagnostics' (are you missing an assembly reference?)C:\Users\Gopi\Documents\VisualStudio 2008\Projects\hello world\hello world\HelloWorld.cs 19 28 hello world
Error 2 The type or namespace name 'Process' could not be found (are you
missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)C:\Users\Gopi\Documents\VisualStudio 2008\Projects\hello world\hello world\HelloWorld.cs 19 42 hello world


using System;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Reflection;



class Program
{


public static void Main(string[] args)
{


System.Diagnostics.Process = new Process();


}
}

Hi,

This usually happens if You miss a reference to a required assembly. Make
sure You have referenced the System assembly from Your project. To do this :
- Select Your project in the solution explorer.
- open the References node, under your projects node
- check if there is a "System" node under References, if not go to menu:
Project-> Add Reference..., make sure ".Net" tab is selected and look for
System, when You find it press Ok.

Hope this solves Your problem.

Even after I fixed the code problem you mentioned I get the error.

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Process' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Diagnostics' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\Gopi\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\hello world\hello world\HelloWorld.cs 19 28 hello world
Error 2 The type or namespace name 'Process' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) C:\Users\Gopi\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\hello world\hello world\HelloWorld.cs 19 43 hello world


I am guessing I never had the reference in the first place. May be VS Studio Express version does not make this type available? Could that be the case?

C# Express does indeed support System.Diagnostics namespace. Make sure you have added a reference to it in your references. The reply from miher below lists the steps.
