Episerver.Core references


Just opened a 2 year old episerverproject i downloaded from the livesite and its missing some assemblies:

using EPiServer.Core;
using EPiServer.DataAbstraction;
using EPiServer.Web.WebControls;
using EPiServer.PlugIn;





I can't figure out which dll to reference to get them. Fx there is no episerver.core.dll on the site.

How do I reference these namespaces?


best regards Sune

I downloaded the episerver 5 sp2 installation, which is the version of the site and tried to install but it wouldnt recognize that I have IIS installed, and just shut down with an error.

I have now installed episerver 6 succesfully but my project still fails to find the abovementioned dlls'.

Ok it appears I had to target .NET 3.5 instead of 2.0 that succeeded in compilation. 

Thanks for your help anyways...
