Cannot Find ESRI.ArcGIS.DataSourcesGDB Reference

To All ArcGIS Developers:

I have taken over the editing of a .NET application that I need to upgrade to work in v10.  The exe file from the code currently works in ArcGIS v9.3.1.

When I open the sln in Visual Studio and check the references it says that it can not find this dll.  Does anyone know where I would find this dll as I thought Visual Studio is able to find references on the development machine?  I have the Desktop Developer kit and VBA Developer Resources installed on this machine.

Any help or hints are greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

I assume you have arcgis desktop installed too.  If you remove the missing reference from your project and add a new one, it should be list under the .net tab in the add reference form.  The version numbers of the assemblies have changed between 9.3 and 10 so you need fix the references.

Did you install the SDK?

Mine is here:
