Hi,

Can I use the Kendo MVC framework with a MVC3/razor project on visual studio 2010 Sp1? Also what database needs to be on SQL Server to make the localhost Kendo demos work.  It keeps failing out trying to connect. Is it looking for an advetureworks database?  where can I get one?

I'm presently avoiding upgrading to Visual Studio 2012 cause I don't like the look of it and MS are still deciding if they;re going to skin all the icons.

thanks

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan, 


Please find the answers of your questions below:

  1. Can I use the Kendo MVC framework with a MVC3/razor project on visual studio 2010 Sp1?  - yes, MVC3/Razor and VisualStudio 2010 Sp1 are supported.
  2. Also what database needs to be on SQL Server to make the localhost Kendo demos work. - to be able to run the KendoUI for ASP.NET MVC offline demos you should have installed the SQLExpress server with instance name SQLEXPRESS. The database is included in the project.

Hi Vladimir.

Thanks for you answer.  I already have SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012 installed.  Is there a way to create the database without having to install the sqlexpress instance?  Also I noticed that installing the Kendo UI extensions manager causes Visual studio to crash when opening a project.  When I remove the kendo Extension manager or start is safe mode everything is good.  Will here be a patch for that soon?

Cheers,

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,


Basically to change the SQL server instance where the database will be attached, you should edit the connection strings in the master Web.config file:

<connectionStrings>
    <add name="ApplicationServices" connectionString="data source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|aspnetdb.mdf;User Instance=true"
      providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
    <add name="NorthwindConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Northwind.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True"
      providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  </connectionStrings>
