I'm following a course on vb.net and have visual studio 2008 from my school (msdn program)
Unfortunately I'm having serious problems: apparently I can't use a lot of the common references.
Eg.: If I try to use My.Computer.... the IDE does not recognise this. Same thing for System.Data...
He gives an error but without proposing a solution for it, the thing is just not recognised.
I can't add these references in the project's references either.

Anyone an idea where the problem could be?

If I try to use My.Computer

My.Computer?
Where is the code where you try to use My.Computer?
Which error message do you get?
This is the same as telling me: "My car won't start, start it."

I have no idea what he means by My.computer either - however saying that he can't use System.Data is weird.

Are you typing above everything else

Imports System.Data


???

My.Computer?
Where is the code where you try to use My.Computer?

any code. normally if i type eg system. vs2008 will offer autocompletion. it doesn't do this for a lot of the common libraries on my system like "My.Computer.FileSystem" (or other my.computer....) and system.data.etc...

Which error message do you get?

Name "My" is not declared

system.data: data is not a member of system

If you're sure everything is well, try to re-install the .net framework!

I tried to uninstall 3.5 and vs.net2008 and then installing them again, but no luck there :(
