    Hi Telerik IT Team,

    I am working on a legacy ASP.NET MVC applicaiton which was created using Domain Model with DataAccess 2015. While building the application I realized that, I will need to install DataAccess 2015 to run custom scripts. (which can work on ModelGenerator and further things)

    However, when I tried to install  Telerik_Data_Access_Installer_Q3_2015_SP1 it gave error that newer DataAccess version is available i.e. 2016. In addition, it also says that support for Domain model has been deprecated and migrate the app to Fluent model.

    I referred following links and realized that I will need visual designer to change the Model from Domain to Fluent.



    However, installer for Visual Designer(part of DataAccess 2015) is not available.


    Further, I referred http://docs.telerik.com/data-access/deprecated/developers-guide/code-generation/developer-guide-domain-model-class-mapping-fluent-mapping#next-steps which talks about migrating to Fluent model and requires Telerik Templates to create model. I tried many installers and extensions but none of them installed the Data Item Template for Fluent and Domain models.

    Overall, I am not sure, how I can proceed to make my project work and need assistance from you. Please revert.


    Thanks and Regards,

    Mahesh R. Kulkarni

    Hi Mahesh,

    What you observed with the several installers you tried is expected. The Visual Studio integration of Data Access was deprecated in Q2 2015. The last version that distributes it is Data Access Q1 2015. As for the recommended ways to maintain your existing Data Access projects, this forum post will provide you with the necessary information.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if any questions arise.
