All Visual Studio .NET projects written using Visual Basic also transparently reference two .NET DLLs: mscorlib.dll (which contains portions of the System namespace, as well as namespaces such as System.Collections, System.IO, System.Reflection, and System.Threading), and Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll (which defines the functions, procedures, constants, and attributes of the Visual Basic .NET language).
