You need to capitalize the "m" in MessageBox. C# is a case-sensitive
language. "messageBox" refers to your class here that has only a Main
method and some stuff inherited from System.Object (Equals, etc).

Also, it's probably a good idea to name your class something else, like
"MessageBoxTest", so you don't get get confused when trying to use .NET
classes with similar names. :-)

Have fun,
