    While reading the installation and deployment documentation for the Telerik ASP.NET AJAX tools, it states in several places that you need to install ASP.Net AJAX and provides a link to the ASP.Net AJAX toolkit downloads.  Is this really true?  I have tried several of the samples and do not have the ASP.Net AJAX toolkit installed and everything seems to run fine. 

    Also there are a lot of references to Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010 and Windows Server 2003, and IIS5 and 6.  No references to Visual Studio 2013 or Windows Server 2012, and IIS 8.  I am not sure what does or does not apply to the newer Visual Studio 2013, .Net 4.5, and IIS 8 as they are not mentioned in the docs.  It seems to me that the docs need an update or maybe just a new addendum of docs that apply to the newer tools and platforms.

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    Hi Charlie,

    The most accurate and up-to-date information is available at http://www.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/tech-sheets/system-requirements. The System Requirements and Browser Support help article provides a link to the system requirements page above.

    Could you please tell me which article(s) suggest(s) that the ASP.NET AJAX toolkit is required so that we correct it(them)?

    Best regards,

    Thank you for the information.

    Near the top of this link, in the "Prerequisite" note it states that you need ASP.NET AJAX installed ...
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/introduction-which-file-do-i-need-to-install.html

    And again, in this link ...

    Thank you,

    Hi Charlie,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    I also noticed that the linked ASP.NET AJAX text navigates to "http://ajax.asp.net/", which is updated and could mislead the developers that the Ajax Control Toolkit is a prerequisite.
     
    We will update the link to point to http://www.asp.net/downloads.
