I've spent the last 2 hours trying to resolve an issue that nobody else on Google seems to have run across. Using the "YAF-DNN5-Module SVN 3333" package here , following all the directions precisely, I was able to get YAF up and running in DNN5 EXCEPT for the admin features. Clicking the Admin link resulted in an error regarding profiles. Eventually it struck me that the error related to the YAF Profile provider and a few posts I found mentioned the /bin folder so I started scouring and eventually found /bin/YAF.Providers.dll and also /bin/Providers/ so I moved YAF.Providers.dll to /bin/Providers/YAF.Providers.dll and BAM! No more errors. I can now access the admin area.

Hope this saves someone else some time and frustration.

The exact error was:

The type or namespace name 'ProfileCommon' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
