    I have attached related files for a clearer explanation...

    I created a custom skin using your online tool and that went well.  I downloaded and unzipped the file and installed the contents in my .net 4.0 web site project (VS2012). I named the custom skin "Custom" for the sake of brevity and easy testing.  You can see the resulting structure in ProjectLayout.png.

    I turned off embedded skins in the menu control and included the name of the skin as well.  Please refer to menucontrol.png for that definition.  One note...this is in a user control and not being placed directly on a web page.

    When the page/user control is displayed, there are no styles being applied to the menu (please refer to DisplayedMenu.png).  If I change the "embedded skins" property to true and the name of the skin to one of the included skins, it displays just fine according to the selected embedded skin.

    In addition, no skin/css files are being called for during the page display.  You can see that in the included Fiddler screen capture.

    I'm pretty certain I'm missing something really stupid, but I have followed the instructions in the video for the Visual Style Builder (which was an otherwise good video).

    Can anyone tell me what I am missing?

    Thanks in advance for assistance!

    Hi Lynn,

    Can you please clarify what is the base skin that you used in order to create your Custom one? Did you remove the sprite images needed for the correct appearance? If you can open a support ticket and send us a very simplified runnable project with only the minimum requirements to replicate the issue locally would be very helpful. Thus we can inspect it locally and determine the actual cause for the appearance that you get.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
