    Hi,

    I'm following the steps found here : http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/aspnet-mvc/mvc-core/getting-started#prerequisites

    At step 6 it says "Copy the js and styles folders from the telerik.ui.for.aspnetmvc archive to wwwroot\lib\kendo-ui"

    But I could'nt find where these files are located. WHere is this archive folder located?

    I can't find any in C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\

    Anything I missed?

    Hi Henry,

    The needed js and styles folders can be taken either from and UI for ASP.NET installation, the path to which should be similar to:
    [C:\Program Files (x86)]\Telerik\UI for ASP.NET MVC R3 2016/

    or from telerik.ui.for.aspnetmvc.zip archive that can be downloaded from your Telerik account here:
    https://www.telerik.com/account/product-download?product=KENDOUIMVC

    This is ridiculous. I signed up for the Trial. Downloaded the required NuGet libs and now looking for the JS files.I follow your link and it says "We are sorry, but only licensed users are eligible for downloading the software."

    What do I have to do to get the JS files.

    And the clock is ticking on my trial.

    Hello,

    Since you're using NuGet, rather than the installation, you can use either bower or npm. Both are explained in step 7 in our Getting Started article:
    https://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-core/getting-started/getting-started#prerequisites

    Here are also the concrete articles for bower:
    https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/intro/installation/bower-install

    and npm:
    https://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-core/getting-started/getting-started#configuration-Copy

    I'm following the same tutorial and using Nuget.  It is not clear in the tutorial where to get the client side libraries from.  The linked article about adding client-side libraries discuss 1) Manual, 2) Bower, 3) NPM approaches.  Is there a Nuget approach?  Manual would suffice, but it refers to "telerik.ui.for.aspnetmvc archive".  Where does that exist?  Is it installed on the filesystem somewhere when using Nuget to install Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.Core (or Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.Core.Trial in my case)?  I can go to a CDN and download kendo.all.min.js and put it in the right folders, but there is more to it than that (with jquery, css, etc.).  Can you please assist?

    Nevermind. I got it figured out.  The article is pretty self explanatory.  The downloads section of my telerik account was not showing up, only ability to sign up for a trial, which I already had done.

    Well, still having problems setting this up.  The download page for ASP.NET Core UI just gives directions on adding the Telerik Nuget source repo, then Nuget installing the package Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.Core.  But that package (located in %UserProfile%\.nuget\packages\telerik.ui.for.aspnet.core.trial\2018.3.1017\lib\netstandard2.0) doesn't include the client side libraries.

    Hi,

    The last article you've linked to is indeed missing the instructions for the client libraries. We'll get right on that.

    It's Microsoft's approach to use NuGet to serve only server resources, and to defer the client styles and scripts to another package manager (you can see this yourself, when you create a new vanilla ASP.NET Core application - the jQuery and Bootstrap are loaded through libman, and formally bower). So in order to get the client resources you would need to use one of the tree approaches, described in the article. The manual step requires you to download the ASP.NET Core zip package from your account download page (not the nuget file), since the NuGet package doesn't include them.

    Hope this was helpful.

    You need to make this setup easier.  I shouldn't have to jump through so many hoops to evaluate this product.  Grab a WiX installer and deploy the changes for me.

    Hello,

    If you need a more straightforward experience in getting started, for the purposes of evaluating the product, you can use the VS extensions to create a new project with just a few clicks. This will setup all of the necessary resources and references for you:

    Yes, the Wizard did help.  So, now I'm trying to get the TreeView working in my "old", non-telerik solution.  When I compare the wizard project to the instructions that are provided to introduce Telerik to existing projects there are huge gaps.  The instructions say to add files that don't exist in the Wizard generated project.  Maybe I'm looking at the wrong instructions. 

     

    Can you point me to the latest instructions on how to introduce Telerik controls to existing .NET Core Web Sites?

    Hi,

    The Wizard project uses CDN for the client resources, in order to provide the most lightweight project possible. The instructions detail how to use local files, so the client has the option to do so, if CDN is not a valid option. Aside from that there shouldn't be any other differences in the implementation.
