    Referencing AFSDK Issues


      Hello.  I am having a problem getting even a basic AFSDK app in VB.NET (VS 2015) to connect to a PI Server (PI Data Archive 2016 R2).  I have tried the following:

      • referencing the AFSDK.dll file in the "PublicAssemblies" folder
      • copying that file to the project folder and referencing it from there
      • changing target .NET Framework version from 4.5.2 -> 4.6 -> 4.6.1
      • uninstalling/reinstalling PI AF Client 2016


      I can get information like the version of the AFSDK (via AFGlobalSettings.SDKVersion), but if I try to access classes like PIServer or PIPoint under OSIsoft.AF.PI, they simply don't exist.  There is probably an easy solution but I am running out of ideas.
