    I've installed Visual Studio 2015 Professional and I'm trying to get Telerik items in the Toolbox.  I've tried installing it using the MSI file, the Telerik Control Centre, the Telerik Toolbox Configurator in the VS and so far, nothing.  I've followed the instructions for creating a tab in the toolbox and adding the items manually, but when I go to check off the Telerik items, they're already checked off.  I've rebooted, reinstalled and even changed versions from Visual Studio 2015 Community to Visual Studio 2015 Professional.

    Gettin' kinda ticked about it, now.  Anybody have any thoughts?

    Hi Jerry,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You have updated your Visual Studio edition, you may need to repair the installation or install the Visual Studio features again.

    To install the Visual Studio integration features run the MSI installer and select the Visual Studio 2015 feature. You can check the vs2015-feature.png screenshot attached.

    To repair the existing installation run the MSI installer and repair the installation. You can check the msi-repair.png screenshot attached.

    Note that to be able to see the toolbox items you should be editing ASP.NET files (e.g. aspx).

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards,

    Dear Steliyan,

    I have the same problem, and I did these steps with "Reset Toolbox" also, but it seems no changes

    What I found is that not all Telerik tools are shown in a toolbox, the existing tools are

    RadButton, RadClientDataSource, RadDataForm, GridMobileColumnEditorBase, RadClientExportManager, RadDiagram, RadCalendar, RadGantt, and RadCloudUpload

    Please advice

    Thanks in advance for your fast response

    Hi Ehab,

    First make sure you have tried the Toolbox troubleshooting solutions described at http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/general-information/troubleshooting/toolbox-troubleshooting#the-toolbox-contains-old-item-registrations.

    If that doesn't fix the problem please follow these steps:
    1. Check if the Read-only attribute is checked for the "%localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0" folder and the files inside it. If the Read-only attribute is set, remove it.
    2. Start Visual Studio as Administrator.
    3. Right click on the Toolbox and select "Reset Toolbox".

    In case the controls are still missing, I recommend you to completely reset the Visual Studio Toolbox. Following the steps below will help you to do it:
    1. Close all Visual Studio instances.
    2. Open the "%localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0"  folder and remove all *.tbd files.
    3. Using the "regedit.exe" tool, find "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ToolboxControlsInstaller_AssemblyFoldersExCache" and "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ToolboxControlsInstallerCache" registry keys.
    4. Remove everything from these keys leaving them empty.
    5. Run Visual Studio again and wait until it recreates all items in the Toolbox.

    You can find more information about how to add controls to Toolbox manually at http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/introduction-adding-to-vs-toolbox-net.html.

    Please try all of the above steps and let us know if this helps.
