    Hoping to become a Telerik customer, but I can't get the live demos solution to build.  Have installed the live demo hot-fixes.  Running VS2008 and ASPX.NET 2.0

    It is flagging up a section of the Web.Config and I don't know how to fix the error.  Can someone please help?

    Section is:
    -------------------------------------------------
    <compilation debug="true">
       <codeSubDirectories>
        <add directoryName="Grid_VB"/>
       </codeSubDirectories>
       <assemblies>
      
    at Grid_VB
    -----------------------------------------------

    Thanks

    Barry

    PS:  Is it me, or does Telerik pull VS2008 to its knees?

    Barry-$0$0$0$0Sorry to hear you're having trouble. Let me answer your questions in reverse order:$0$0$0$0$01) VS Performance- this is actually VS pulling VS to its knees. VS 2008 simply does not handle large projects with 1,000's of files very well. It is terrible at managing memory and this is a problem Microsoft is going to try to address in VS 10 and beyond. The Telerik demo project (which has all the code for all 600+ demos) is unusually huge, so this is why you're seeing VS crawl. Your own projects with the RadControls will run fast and fine.$0$0$0$0$02) Running the Demos- To run the demos locally, you shouldn't have to start with a compile. You should be able to simply browse the demo you're interested in by right-clicking on the file in the Solution Explorer and clicking "View in Browser." Alternatively, you can see all Telerik demos running live by visiting http://demos.telerik.com. The <codeSubDirectories> directive is required to tell VS to compile the VB code in App_Code in to a separate assembly from the C# code. Problems building are usually related to local machine config or permissions problem.$0$0$0$0$0Is there a specific demo you're trying to run? Perhaps I can help you build a simple demo project that focuses on your specific scenario so that you can get past these problems and get started with some code that is meaningful to your project. Hope this info helps.$0$0$0$0$0-Todd$0

    THanks, Todd.

    THe problem turned out to be that when VS2008 upgraded the "live demos" I told it to make a backup.  This seemed to confuse VS2008 and resulted in the problem.  When I ran the conversion without the backup all was well...

    Weird...

    Thanks for your other points - they are reassuring.  As someone with massive experience in Delphi, moving to VS2008 has become a source of frustration with its slow responses - I'm running on Xenon processors which should be enough power even for VS, but apparently not!  :-)  The Telerik TreeView control is quite something, makes the thought of migrating an interactive tree-controlled app from Delphi to C# ASP.NET not at all daunting.

    Thanks again.

    Happy to help! Sorry for the bad formatting, too. I forgot that Chrome doesn't yet play nice with all of the web. If you run in to any additional issues, you know where to find the help. -Todd
