When you specify /autoref- (notice the minus sign) at the jsc.exe compilation command, there is no automatic association between namespaces and assemblies. You need to specify the assembly names explicitly. Use the /reference switch to do this. The syntax is simple:

Since only one .exe file can be associated with a single application, your assemblies should be .dll files. In any case, when you compile with /target:winexe or /target:exe, do not pass to the /reference switch any assemblies created with /target:winexe or /target:exe.

Here is another example for using the /reference switch:

  jsc /reference:metad1.dll;metad2.dll /out:out.exe input.js
