    I have a Telerik ultimate license for Q1 2012

    I have done strictly ASP.NET Ajax dev so far but I am currently working on an MVC project.
    Can I use the versions I have with MVC?

    MVC: 4
    Entity framework: 6

    Telerik Extensions for MVC 2012.1.214
    Telerik Web.UI 2012.1.215

    Hello Bill,

    The Telerik Extensions for MVC 2012.1.214 should be compatible with MVC4 and you can use them for your project. You may need to add a binding redirect if the project was originally built for MVC3:
      <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:Schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
          <assemblyIdentity name="System.Web.Helpers" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" />
          <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
          <assemblyIdentity name="System.Web.Mvc" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" />
          <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
          <assemblyIdentity name="System.Web.WebPages" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" />
          <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />

    As for the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX (Telerik Web.UI 2012.1.215 that you have) - they are not tested with MVC and we cannot guarantee their compatibility. They are built around the WebForms paradigm and heavily rely on the page lifecycle that it has. Thus, if you have "regular" webforms in your project (e.g., in iframes) it may be possible to integrate the controls in them, but we cannot guarantee their compatibility or support such scenarios.
