I am trying to build a solution and I keep getting these following errors, I have searched the internet but I haven't found a solution. I am building on VS2012:

Error 27 The type or namespace name 'IDiaSymbol' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
Error 37 The type or namespace name 'Dia' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

Please help!

Hi Lebogang01,

Based on your description, I fee this issue is related with your project. Could you please tell us what type of project do you create? And how you come across this issue?

Since this issue is related to the project, and this forum is to discuss the Microsoft build engine aka MSBuild. Topics including: usage of MSBuild, build customization, and MSBuild extensibility via tasks, loggers and hosting, I will move this case to off-topic forum. If this issue is still there, please provide details about your project. Then I will direct you a correct forum. Thank you for your understanding!

Best regards,
