Many of the projects are now working. Copying the DLLs from C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for ASP.NET AJAX Q2 2014\Bin35 to References seems to be working well.
Now, when I open a project sometimes it will ask for the upgrade. I then do a Telerick / UI for ASP.NET AJAX / Convert to Telerik. I can then runs it (HONEST!!!!!), I really do not need to do the Website References thing.
So far I have found a few problems.
1. Convert to Telerik sometimes says "WebSite project not supported" such as in Projects\ActiveSkill Getting Started\CS\002\ActiveSkill. When this happens running the project gives list of project folders instead of a proper webpage.
2. The chart projects do not show a Web Site menu item at all and gives a configuration error on the chart. I wonder how adding an assembly works for the version and Public Key Token values.

3. For database projects, I downloaded the server pack 3 as suggested. Hopefully moving forward, I now get an authentication error on my user (computer is Cosmo).

I attempted to upgrade
the mdf files but the upgrade said it could not understand the source file.
The SQLServer updater will only go forward on installations, I might have some SQL Server 2010 now, it show up here and there.
Please understand that my installation is the bleeding edge with the latest Microsoft operating system (Windows 8.1 64 Pro), Visual Studio 2013 and SQL Server 2008/2010 which is where many of your new users will be starting.
