    Couple of small issues with the wpf controls.

    When dropping a control onto a form, I don't get an automatic inclusion of the name space in teh wpf header.

    Also, the help system did integrate with VS2008, but the index and table of contents can't be found.  I could search i guess, but it make's it hard to browse help and poke around.

    Hi Cuthahotha,

    Let's start with the help registration issue. I have seen this happen on machines that had Visual Studio or Document Explorer (the help environment) open at the time of the installation. In those cases I had to close all VS and Document Explorer instances and restart them. Usually that triggers a merge of the Telerik help namespace and everything starts working.

    In addition, there should be a file called H2Reg_Log.txt, by default located in C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for WPF Q2 2008\Help, that could help us determine if something went wrong during the installation process. Could you please send us this file, either by openning a support ticket and attaching the file or by pasting the file contents in our forum?

    As far as the namespace problem is concerned, VS2008 without SP1 installed behaves in a manner similar to what you describe -- it does not register the telerik namespace prefix, but adds a default namespace of "my" using a CLR-based namespace instead of an URI-based one (https://schemas.telerik.com/...).

    Can you provide additional information such as the versions of Visual Studio (and its service packs) and RadControls for WPF. Do you get any kind of error when you drag a control on a form? Does the problem occur for all WPF controls?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Cuthahotha,

    I have been looking around, trying to find out what is going wrong with your help installation. I am told that sometimes the registration may fail for some obscure reasons (possibly if you have VS or the document explorer running at the time of the installation).

    Can you try reinstalling the documentation manually? Your install folder (typically C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for WPF Q2 2008\) will contain a subfolder named Help. Inside you can find two batch files: RegisterHelp.bat and UnRegisterHelp.bat. Close all instances of Visual Studio and the MSDN help browser and run UnRegisterHelp.bat. Run RegisterHelp.bat afterwards. Start Visual Studio and open the online help. If all goes well, you should see the Telerik Windows Controls node in the TOC.
