    hiya,

    vs2005.

    I've installed Q2 2009. And I try to create a c# telerik webSite frpm the project templates.
    It asks for the telerik.ui.dll.
    I point it to C:\Program Files\telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q2 2009\Live Demos\Bin

    I get a message that informs me that I might lose design time functionality because I haven't referenced the "design.dll".
    I ok this, and go ahead.

    The project opens, but it only contains a single default.aspx page, and there's no telerik controls on it.

    The project compiles ok, but the page is blank.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Hi Chris,

    If you have .NET 3.5 installed on your machine, the Live Demos you get installed are using the .NET3.5 specific Telerik.Web.UI assembly to demonstrate the .NET 3.5 specific functionality. The installer extracts the .NET 3.5 specific examples to the Live Demos folder as well.

    The assembly distribution that you should use in your project are located in the bin or bin35 folders of the main RadControls installation folder.

    That said, the installer detects the Visual Studio version you have installed. If it cannot find Visual Studio 2008 but only Visual Studio 2005, it only deploys the .NET 2.0 assemblies (e.g. there is only the bin folder in the RadControls installation folder). This comes as Visual Studio 2005 can only target .NET Framework 2.0. For this reason the reference to the Telerik.Web.UI assembly in your project should point to the Telerik.Web.UI assembly targeting .NET Framework 2.0 (as I pointed above, it is located in the [RadControlsInstallationFolder]\bin directory). I suggest that you just change the assembly reference in your project.

    Let me know if that helps.

    P.S. By the way, the post title mentions a message regarding the Telerik.Web.Design assembly during install. Are you referring to the message, appearing in the Project Configuration Wizard?

    hiya,

     

    I have:

    1)  vs2008 express

    2) vs2005 PRO

     

    I’m fully aware that the extensions can’t be installed on an express version. Therefore, I use vs2005.

    So I open up vs2005 PRO and try to create a telerik c# website

    I browse to the dll (C:\Program Files\telerik\RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q1 2008\Live Demos\Bin\ Telerik.Web.UI.dll)

     

    I get a message “the selected is not supported by VS extension templates…some of the pages might not work etc”

     

    I “ok” this, but it won’t me pick a skin.

    I click finish

     

    I then get a message saying that “the project file “……\temp\radcontrolsWebApplication7.csproj” can’t be opened. The project type is not supported by this installation”

     

    I have vs2008 express and vs2005 installed, that’s hardly a very unusual configuration.

     

    Before we go any further, please confirm that  telerik have tested vs template extensions for the above configuration?

     

    <<P.S. By the way, the post title mentions a message regarding the Telerik.Web.Design assembly during install. Are you referring to the message, appearing in the Project Configuration Wizard?>>

     

    Yes, that’s correct

     

    Many thanks,

     

    yogi

    Hi yogi,

    Based on my experience, the issue may be caused by kinds of reasons. 

    Try the following steps to see if the issue still exists:

    1.     Try to run devenv /ResetSettings (in command prompt) to eliminate the related potential settings problem.
    2.     Try disabling Add-ins (e.g. “Tools” | “Add-in Manager”) or run “devenv.exe /SafeMode”.This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins or packages are causing problems. 
    3.     Try creating a new web application project (File -> New -> Project...-> Visual C# -> Web -> ASP.NET Web Application). Sometimes corrupted project settings can cause problems.
