To install Telerik OpenAccess ORM for Visual Studio 2008 it is enough to select the VisualStudio 2008 Support option
from the Telerik Trial Installer.
Alternatively, if you prefer to install OpenAccess directly from the .msi file, you will be able to select Visual Studio 2008 in the following way:
- At the Customization step of the installer, click the Customize button.
- From the drop down menu in front of the Visual Studio 2008 option, chose Will be installed on local hard drive.
You will be able to turn features of OpenAccess on or off from the Telerik Control panel, only if you have installed the product through the Telerik Installer. Therefore if you have installed OpenAccess directly from the .msi file you will be unable to see checkboxes for any version of Visual Studio.
Please note that OpenAccess Project Templates
are available only for Visual Studio 2010 and later versions. So for example, if you to create an OpenAccess Domain Model as a separate project, you will have to:
- Create a Class Library project.
- Add Telerik OpenAccess Domain Model to the project.
Could you please confirm whether the OpenAccess Item Templates are available for you and whether the Visual Studio 2008 checkbox in Telerik Control panel is checked (in case you have used Telerik Trial Installer to install OpenAccess)?
We are looking forward to an update regarding your situation.
