I thought no big deal.  I will just add it to my references and go on. So I went to my add references dialog box and it wasn’t there.

I knew that I installed the latest and greatest for the 3.0 framework bits, but for sanity sake I will check in the GAC folder.  Sure enough, there it is.

With the add reference dialog I can’t just browse to the GAC folder and try to add the reference at that level.  So after some research, I found the assembly in the following location

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation

I added the reference to it from there and set copy local to false.  Then I renamed the file and it still compiled.  I just wanted to make sure that it was at least looking into the GAT as a reference.  After some research, I found out that the add reference dialog box is path based and not related to the GAC.  Go figure.
