I am getting an error message when I run my project on a handheld - 'File or assembly name Microsoft.VisualBasic Version=8.0.0.0 ... not found'. My project has Microsoft.VisualBasic ticked in the References/Imported namespaces and compiles perfectly. It doesn't have it in the Reference section. Is it needed there?

If so, where can I get it from - v.8.0.0?

Net Compact Framework 2.0 and 3.5 are both installed on the terminal.

Thanks for your help.

I can't really help you with .Net Compact, but for regular desktop projects you won't find the Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll reference because it is always required and added automatically by compiler, it is possibly the same with compact.
This thread indicates only .Net CF redistributable must be installed, but says also check a location for the dll: can't run exe file on WINCE 5.0

Thread moved to Compact Framework forum.
