    Hi there, I am just trying to install the MVC 5 version from the private nuget feed. Everytime I try to install it, it freezes Visual Studio, any of them. I've tried in 2012, 2013, and 2015. Same thing always happens. When I check the project, the package installs the Scripts and the fonts folder, no editor templates or content.

    The output says Installing Telerik.UI.xxx.MVC5xxx, adding package Telerik.UI.MVC5. Added package Telerik.UI.MVC5, and that's where it freezes.

    I cannot use the telerik template creators because I want to add kendo UI to my existing projects. Nuget package is the best way. I tried downloading the nuget package too and installing it that way, still same freeze. What is going on? Thanks.

    Well I should comment that it did actually finally work in 2015, only after letting Visual Studio sit there for 45 minutes did it finally unfreeze with all the stuff properly loaded, seems like the hangup is the content folder. But why does it take such a long time? That's like not usable. Every project I want to add this in I should wait 45 minutes???

    Hi Andrew,

    We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    The NuGet package upgrade should not take more than a few minutes. The source control system however may have a significant performance impact over the NuGet client speed which is not under our control. What kind of source control system do you use? Could you please turn off the source control integration and give it another try?

    Hi Vesko,

    I'm having the same problem as Andrew, it takes over 30 min to install or uninstall Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.MVC4 v 2016.2.607 on VS 2015.

    Could you please elaborate on how/why source control impacts the nuget performance (we use git and svn)? Why we don't have this kind of issue with any other nuget packages? Is there a workaround for this issue?

    Thanks,

    Victor

    Hi guys,

    I found that the significant slow down is caused by JavaScript files synchronization most probably. Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC 5 package deploys a lot of script files that by default are synchronized during the package deployment.

    I suggest to turn off the JavaScript references auto-sync. Here is how to do that:

    1. Right-click _references.js and uncheck Auto-sync JavaScript References.
    2. Install the NuGet package.
    3. Right-click _references.js and click on Update JavaScript References.
