This is frustrating, and I don't know how to solve it.
I have a strange problem. I am adding a LinqDatasource object, and set the context:
protected void LinqDataSource_ContextCreating(object sender, LinqDataSourceContextEventArgs e)
e.ObjectInstance = new KaruselaDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);
Then I get this error:The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.
On web.config I already have this:<add assembly="System.Data.Linq, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"/>
NOTE: The datacontext is in a different project (DLL proect) where I added a refernce to System.Data.Linq.
is there another way adding a refernce to a web project? or only though teh web.config?

LINQ's ability to project randomly shaped data into anonymous types can be a blessing and a source of frustration, says Julie Lerman. It's great when you just need to grab a special view of your data, but it can be problematic in certain circumstances. She explains what the limitations are and how to get around them.

Did you know that by precompiling LINQ queries you might actually be degrading your app's performance if you're not careful? Julie Lerman explains how to ensure you're not re-precompiling queries each time and losing the expected performance benefits across post-backs, short-lived service operations and other code where critical instances are going out of scope.
