Thank you for your interest in RadControls.
I believe that once you start - you will find working with Telerik controls easy and intuitive.
The video you watched used Visual Studio 2005 and that is why there is a template called ASP.NET Ajax-Enabled Web Site.
In order to use RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX you need to have Ajax installed. If you use Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0 framework you need to install the ASP.NET Ajax Extensions 1.0 from here
. This will add the Ajax support to your applications and the ASP.NET Ajax-Enabled Web Site template in VS 2005.
If you use Visual Studio 2008 this means that you have already .NET 3.5 installed. The AJAX is included in that framework so you do not have to install anything else - you can use Ajax in your applications. That is why the ASP.NET Ajax-Enabled Web Site template is missing in VS 2008.
You can check this blog post for more information:
