When following the quickstarts for ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions, I am trying to add a reference to Microsoft.Data.WebClient from the GAC References list. This assembly does not actually appear in the list, even though it does appear under C:\Windows\assembly.
I can't locate this DLL on my computer as well. I tried reinstalling the Extensions, but that did not help.
Am I missing an installation?

The dll should be present at: \Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions. Let us know if its not there.

I too has the same problem locating the file Microsoft.Data.WebClient.dll
I installed VS2008 SP1, which included .NET 3.5 sp1 and was following some tutorial on ADO.NET Data Services and got stuck trying to locate the file Microsoft.Data.WebClient.dll.
Also the install program did not create the directory \Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions. Instead it created \Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5 and put files such as Microsoft.Web.Entity.dll,
Microsoft.Data.Entity.dll, Microsoft.Data.Services.dll, etc there.
This happened to 2 PCs where I have VS2008 then applied VS2008 SP1 on top. Both never had any preview or beta version of ASP.NET 3.5 Extension previously.
Is there a log file when SP1 installed that I should check?
Thanking in advance for your help.

The answer for my problem is Microsoft had renamed some of the files/namespaces between previews and the release version of .NET 3.5 sp1.
I found that out from this post ->
It also mentioned that 'webdatagen.exe' got renamed to 'datasvcutil.exe'.
