I'm just adding this library with NuGet.

I see all the extensions in Intelliscence but, when I'm using a method, I can't compile!

For exemple, Im using the method CanConvertTo<> on my string variable, and I get the error:

Error 1 'string' does not contain a definition for 'CanConvertTo' and no extension method 'CanConvertTo' accepting a first argument of type 'string' could be found

What's wrong?

Hi Tuizi,

Have you got references to System.Web in your project?
Try it and let us know if it work for you.

My bad, I change the Target framework from ".NET Framework 4 Client Profile" to ".NET Framework 4" and it's ok.

No reference to System.Web is needed.
