I downloaded a fresh copy of the orchard source from codeplex (

I extracted the zip file and opened the solution in visual studio (with mvc3 installed). The project Orchard.Web is set as the startup project. When trying to build and play the solution, it throws 657 errors, all pertaining to unknown types or namespaces and possible missing assembly references.


Am I missing a step? Just following a pluralsight tutorial. Any help would be appreciated.

This should work just fine, there must have been something wrong while you extracted the files.
