Microsoft Data Access Application Block beginer help

I have successfully downloaded the Enterprise Library and the data
access block (C#). I am able to compile and run the quickstart
application.

So I would like to try the DAB in a new project. But I was unable to
find any instructions on referencing the neccessary DLLs in any of the
Help files or walkthroughs. Did I miss it somewhere?

Which DLLs do I reference? The walkthroughs seem to tell me how to use
SqlHelper and such, but I cant see any mention on how to make reference
to it. Is there a help page I am missing, or another walkthrough that
includes this important first step?

Thanks.

Make a reference to "Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data.dll".

I'm not sure where it says this in the help file.

And where is that file found? Though I have compiled and run the
walkthroughs, when I search my hard drive, i dont see that file
anywhere.

You want to reference the following DLL's:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Enterprise
Library\bin\Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary. Configuration.dll

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Enterprise
Library\bin\Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary. Data.dll

On my computer, it's located under:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Application Blocks for .NET\Data Access
v2\Code\CS\Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data\bin"

Then ./Debug or ./Release depending on whether you compiled the project
in debug or release mode.

Just for clarification .... Looks like Clint's version is the Microsoft Data
Access Application Block v 2 and the one I posted is for Enterprise Library's
version of DAAB.

Ah, I see where the Version difference caused me some confusion. Thanks
for the help.

Ah - sorry about that. I didn't catch the Enterprise Library section.
