    but when we open this project it gives me compilation error .'OpenAccessDataSource' is not defined.

    Hello Rajeev,

    It seems that you do not have appropriate references to the OpenAccess ORM and RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX dlls in your application. I suggest you follow the steps from the resources below to address the errors you get:

    Well, I ended up adding all the references I could think of, but no luck.

    The link in Sebastian's reply is broken (first one)

    I have a .net 4 web app. I added OpenAccess, OpenAccess.35.exten, OpenAccess.40.exten, OpenAccess.config, OpenAccess.Intellitrace, OpenAccess.Runtime, OpenAccess.SDK.Design, OpenAccess.Windows

    No luck. I've been trying to use the control for 2 years now and I have never been able to use it. Smart tag always wants me to compile, now this. Is it even a real control? :-)

    Hi Erik,

    I fixed the link to the help article in my post.

    In case you experience issues with the Open Access ORM configuration and dlls references, please submit a separate post under the Telerik OpenAccess ORM forum and my colleagues will help you out.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
