You should read Inside the .NET Framework / Assemblies[^] on MSDN, as well as the rest of the overviews of .NET under .NET Framework[^]. It's important to understand the basic concepts before getting started.

Assemblies contain not only the stuff I mentioned earlier, but all the Types defined in that assembly. A Type is a class, struct, enum, or delegate that is contained in a simple assembly. If you want to reference a Type from one assembly in a different assembly, you must reference that assembly in Visual Studio .NET (or using the /r param for the command-line compiler for the language in which you're developing).

For example, if you want to develop a Windows Forms application, you project must reference the System.Windows.Forms.dll assembly, as well as a few others like System.dll and System.Drawing.dll. If your application references another project (that compiles to an assembly), right-click on References and click Add Reference. Select the Projects tab and add your project (if it's in the same solution, otherwise use the .NET tab for .NET assemblies or the COM tab to add an interop assembly).

The using keyword used to "import" namespaces is only to save you from having to type the full namespace and class name, similar to the import keyword in Java. If you try using using with a namespace that is defined in another assembly (and remember, a namespace can span multiple assemblies so just because the namespace is available doesn't mean the class is available), then you must reference that assembly.

Remember, be sure to read about the .NET Framework and understand the concepts, such as .NET isn't limited to C# and - once compiled - the fact that the source was written in C# makes little to no difference (different languages compilers that target the Common Language Runtime, or the CLR, all produce Intermediate Language, or IL, with only a few differences depending on compiler optimizations and what the compilers supports).
