    I am new to the "MVC" world so I expect that I am doing something wrong.  I am constantly moving between a desktop station and a laptop.  Projects created on one system will not load successfully from Team Foundation Services on the second system.  Both computers have are fully licensed and have all the same levels of .NET and other tools installed.  Both are kept "current" from the "Telerik" and "Microsoft" perspective.

    The problem seems to be related to the "Kendo.Mvc.dll".  The computer knows where it is and links and compiles perfectly fine on machine #1.  When I save all to TFS then move to workstation #2 the problems occur.  A complete get of all source code, and subsequent compilation, shows that the computer cannot find "Kendo.Mvc.dll".  The reference shows a small symbol indicating its reference is invalid.  I am forced to manually remove the .DLL, then browse for the .DLL.  This solves the immediate problem however it then reoccurs when I do the reverse (move back to machine #1).  All Telerik/Kendo .DLL's are set to "copy local".

    A possible symptom of the problem:  A "upgrade" action causes the upgrade wizard to crash.  It dies reporting that it cannot find the .DLL despite it being present in the respective folders.  If it is of concern, the projects are targeted at .NET Framework 4.6.1.  I appear to be using MVC 5.

    Is anyone else having similar issues?  What am I doing wrong?  While this is in no way a showstopper, it is an annoyance I would like to resolve.

    What is the full path to the dll on each machine once you have it working on each one?

    It sounds to me that each machine has installed Kendo to a slightly difference path/folder and the project is referencing the dll in the kendo installation folder rather than a "lib" folder that is part of the source tree(and thus would be in the exact same spot no matter what machine fetched the code).

    That is what I have considered however I have two basic environments.  One in a virtual environment, one in "reality".  To the best of my knowledge both have the same path.  That path is:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for ASP.NET MVC R3 2016\wrappers\aspnetmvc\Binaries\Mvc5.


    Obviously the folders can change when framework changes however the problems occur when both systems have the same frameworks.  (i.e., R3 2016 or such)

    I am aware that different .DLL's seem to exist based upon the flavor of MVC used.

    Hi David,

    Can you try copying the Kendo.MVC.dll directly in the bin folder of the application and refer it directly from there? This should allow you the application to run properly, no matter what the installation folder of the controls is.
