Default Global Settings problem


I was hoping that I would not need to post here, but I'm unable to see the problem. The side is mostly built on this book and the problem is the following:

If I run the following command:

Article objArticle = Article.GetArticleByID(nArticleID);

I get the following error:

Unable to cast object of type 'CSO.UI.SectionName' to type 'CSO.UI.SectionName'.

from some unknown reason the Settings variable is empty
public readonly static SectionName Settings = (SectionName)WebConfigurationManager.GetSection("c ustomSection");

Break point on ArticleProvider Instance,
 m_frpInstance = (ArticleProvider)Activator.CreateInstance(
                      Type.GetType(Globals.Settings.Article.ProviderType ));

Globals.Settings The type 'CSO.UI.Globals' exists in both '{7A3711C9-C948-4DF0-A2FC-47D933E5F87C}' and '{A7A93000-C512-49F8-8EDD-16749DB05919}'

Any ideas would be great ? Thanks.

You've went far enough to see the issue - it sounds like you may have an old .cs file laying around in app_code, or an old assembly in bin?
