What assemblies does RouteConfig and BundleConfig need?

'm improving on an old ASP.NET WebForms app that was assigned to me when I joined DOH back in 2015. I had to pull this thing together from bits and pieces scattered around the network, since the original developer didn't put it into any source control, didn't leave it as a Visual Studio solution, etc. Anyway, I've finally got it into TFS properly, so that it can now be tracked. Only thing now is several odd errors I'm getting when trying to build it. At the moment I'm looking at the Global.asax.vb file (the original developer coded it using VB.NET). Here's the contents of that file:

Imports System.Web.Optimization

Public Class Global_asax
    Inherits HttpApplication

    Sub Application_Start(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        ' Fires when the application is started
        RouteConfig.RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes)
        BundleConfig.RegisterBundles(BundleTable.Bundles)
    End Sub
End Class

Visual Studio is complaining about RouteConfig and BundleConfig, saying they're not defined. I believe the issue is it's not including the necessary .NET assemblies. Its including System.Web.Optimization, but I'm wondering what else it needs?

The guy who wrote this thing (I never met him) I think wrote it using .NET 2. Maybe older. I've upgraded it to .NET 4.5.2

    Hi @Rod At Work ,
    As far as I think,your problem is that you need to create the RouteConfig.cs and BundleConfig .cs file. These are the visual studio designed by default. You could create a new project to compare your project.
