Hi Peter,
Thanks for your answer.
I wasn't so clear before - I did use IKVMC to turn the Protege jar into dll and
referenced it through my C# app. 
There is also protege-owl jars but that's too much jars to use the ikvmc on, I
think. (anyways if anyone did that I'd be happy to hear).
I did found the SemWeb through my search and I know the LinqtoRdf is based on it
but the Semweb is only for rdf and doesn't support openeing OWL files from .net.
(if I understood correctly). That's why I wanted to use the LinktoRdf.
what did you use the SemWeb in your application for? (javn't had any expirience
with the Sparql yet).
