I want to migratet my project from VS 2005 to VS2012.
I created very simple project in VS2012 (C#, Class Library designated for .NET Framework 2.0.
I added references to ACT dll (e.g. Act.UI.dll ver. 188.8.131.52 for Sage ACT! Premium 2011 - Ver. 184.108.40.206, Hotfix 1)
and to System.Windows.Forms.dll
than I add code:
public class Class1
public Act.UI.ActApplication aaa;
And I received error:
"The type or namespace name 'Act' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) "
When I made those steps in VS2008 all work fine. Why?

I tried. I heve even copied them from GAC to other directory. I created new project in VS2012 without any other code. Does not works! Unfortunatelly
In VS2008 works... But i need VS2012

This may help.
We create a copy of all the act! DLLs and place them into a separate folder to reference from our solution. I copy the DLLs from the CD image. This way we can reference older builds and still run newer builds keeping compatibility back to ACT 2010 (12.0.409)
We use a mix of VS 2012 for new code and VS 2008 for patches/hot fixes.
