    Just installed the latest free OpenAccess ORM 2012 and see not templates in visual web dev 2010 on two different machines. Uninstalled and reinstalled a couple times with no success. Does the the free version not work in the free vw dev 2010?

    Hello Sean,

    Unfortunately you are almost right with you guess - the free versions of Visual Studio are not supported by OpenAccess ORM, meaning that:
    - you will not have any Visual Designer available
    - you will not be able to use any wizards or project templates

    What you can use is only the Fluent Mapping API (also called the Code-Only approach), in case you find it suitable for your project. I hope that helps.

    So the free version of OpenAccess only supports the full version of 2010? That's seems to be a little counter intuitive... Any plans on making that happen in the roadmap?

    Hello Sean,

    In fact, even the commercial release does not support those visual parts of the product, since they are parts of a Visual Studio add-in and the free versions of Visual Studio do not support add-ins, so there is technically no way to make that happen in the near future.

    Kind regards,

    I also just installed the latest ORM (Telerik_OpenAccess_ORM_2012_1_301_dev.msi) and it did not install the templates in either VS 2010  or 2008. I have full professional licenses and I am a licensed Enterprise user for Telerik.

    Hello Steven,

    In general, if you are using the commercial editions of Visual Studio 2008/2010, you should have all the OpenAccess templates in place once OpenAccess ORM is installed.

    Can you verify that .NET Framework 4.0 is selected on the Add New Project screen? Also - are the templates the only thing missing or you are experiencing other issues? For instance, can you create a Domain Model and to see your persistent classes in the Visual Designer, when you open the generated RLINQ file?

    I am looking forward to your feedback.

    Kind regards,

    I'm running Visual Studio 2008 professional, and Mr. Schmalfeld is right - the trick is to uninstall and reinstall the ORM in order to have the addin installed and get access to the templates!
