         My company just purchased the licenses for Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and I am trying to convert and our current project into a Telerik project, but I dont see the option to convert.  I only see the create new Telerik project option.  I have looked all over the website and the documentation site, but I dont see anything regarding this issue.  Am I missing something or is the option not there to convert an MVC 4 web app?

    Hello Justin,

    Convert project command is available for MVC 4 projects which meet the following conditions:
    1. Project should contain the following type GUIDs:
          - Windows CS or VB application type GUID - {FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC} or {F184B08F-C81C-45F6-A57F-5ABD9991F28F}
          - Web application type GUID - {349C5851-65DF-11DA-9384-00065B846F21}
          - MVC 4 application type GUID - {E3E379DF-F4C6-4180-9B81-6769533ABE47}
        e.g. CS MVC 4 project xml should contain the following row <ProjectTypeGuids>{E3E379DF-F4C6-4180-9B81-6769533ABE47};{349c5851-65df-11da-9384-00065b846f21};{fae04ec0-301f-11d3-bf4b-00c04f79efbc}</ProjectTypeGuids>
    2. Project must have reference to System.Web.Mvc
    Please check if your project meets these requirements and let us know.

    You could also аdd Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC manually to your project as described here.

    I hope this helps.

    Progress Telerik
