ConfigurationManager doesn't exist

P: n/a
Hi,

I have converted a project from VS2003 to VS2005, and I have an error
which I can't seem to solve.

I was using Configuration.AppSettings to read values from the
application configuration file, but got a warning that this has now been
replaced by the ConfigurationManager class.

I have tried to implement the ConfigurationManager class, but I am
getting an error that it does not exist in namespace System.Configuration.

Everything I can find on MSDN tells me it does exist, yet the compiler
generates an error.
Can anybody shed any light on this?
I am using VS2005 Professional.
Thanks.

Make sure your project has a reference to System.Configuration.dll
