Hi,

I'm having some issues adding fiddler.exe as a reference in VS2013, no matter what i do VS does not recognize it as a reference when building the solution.
Intellisense reads it just fine and i can add it and any object within in it to the code without any issues.
I've tried this both in a new project and an in an existing inspector solution I've grabbed from github (I'm modifying the WCF binary inspector to decode FastInfoset encoded messages), also tried copying the exe locally instead of grabbing it from the Program Files directory.
Has anyone experienced this issue or has any insights in how to solve it?

P.S.
For fiddler 4 is it possible to use .NET 4/4.5 project profiles for fiddler (4) plugins? the fiddler documentation is quite outdated  and it still instructs me to create a .NET 3.5 solution.

Thanks.

Fiddler is in no way magical. :-)

My first guess is that you're trying to build a .NET4-targeted assembly and using .NET2 Fiddler as a reference (or vice versa). If so, you shouldn't do that; your assembly target platform should match the version of Fiddler you have installed (v4/4.5 or v2/3.5).

Unless there's some reason you need to use .NET4, you generally should target .NET3.5 so that your extension works properly for all users of Fiddler.
