I have created a new module/widget just like I have 3 or 4 times before. All the the others run successfully. The new widget now gives me a server error regarding the Placement.info file:

 

Compiler Error Message: CS0116:

 A namespace cannot directly contain members such as fields or methods

Source Error:


Line 1:  
Line 2:  <Placement>
Line 3:      <Place Parts_Webinar="Content:10"/>
Line 4:      <Place Parts_Webinar_Edit="Content:7.5"/>

Source File: c:\Users\User1\Documents\My Web Sites\orchard1\Modules\Webinars\Placement.info    Line: 2 

why is the compiler treating this .info file like a class? it's just a text file. I created it my choosing .txt and changing the extension to .info. It has compiled successfully before. 
What gives?

Can you check the Build Action associated to the file in the Properties toolbox ?
