How do you add a reference to a System namespaces


How do you add a reference to a System namespaces?

I need to access to objects in System.Data.dll

As System.Data is in the GAC I dont want to reference the dll file directly, C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\GAC_32\System.Da ta\v4.0_4.0.0.0__b77a5c561934e089\System.Data.dll but rather use the instance in the GAC.

The Add references dialog box does not give me an option to to access the GAC, I have tried browsing to C:\Windows\assembly where you can see contents of GAC but dialog does not allow me to add.

Is there a file that I need to edit manually, as I see in the reference dialog there are 5 System Assemblies referenced.

I have figured it out.

I have edited the Config.xml file in My Documents\NinjaTrader 7

Add an element to the <References> tag as below.

<string>C:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 7\bin\NinjaTrader.Core.dll</string>
<string>C:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 7\bin\WilsonORMapper.dll</string>
<string>D:\\My Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\NinjaTrader.Vendor.dll</string>

I backup and modify the \Documents\NinjaTrader 7\Config.xml file. In the <References> section add <string>System.Data.dll</string> Restart NT and the assembly should be available.

Is it possible to include such modification (on Config.xml) in the export package, such that I don't need to teach the users to hack into Config.xml manually?
