Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Problems compiling

Apr 4, 2008 at 10:48 PM
I just downloaded the project. I am using only Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition, and haven't been able to successfully compile after several attempts. Is the project not compatible with Visual Web Developer 2008 Express' web server?

One problem I had was that it would not accept the web.config setting: "<authentication mode="Windows" />". The error message indicated a possible problem with the virtual directory. I commented out that setting just to see if it would compile.

However, it now reports this build error:
The type or namespace name 'IWidget' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) C:\DevTools\dropthings-10669\trunk\Dropthings\Widgets\FastRssWidget.ascx.cs 18 73 C:\...\trunk\

What is wrong with my configuration?
