    We have UI for WPF 2014 Q2-SP1 and are experiencing issues with adding controls to our UI.

    If we create a project WITHOUT implicit styles we get all the required components in the VS2013 toolbox and can drag and drop these components into our UI.
    We would like to use the new VisualStudio 2013 Themes so need to use implicit styles and this is where to problem arises.

    If we create a project WITH implicit styles we get the Telerik UI for WPF 2014 Q2 group in the tooblox but there are no draggable components in here only components with <> in front of them.

    We have tried creating a simple RadButton control in a grid by manually adding to the XAML but we get the following error in the console:
    The type 'telerik:RadButton' was not found. Verify that you are not missing an assembly reference and that all referenced assemblies have been built.

    We might not be understanding the Telerik instructions on using implicit styling but we assume you should still have toolbox controls.
    We have reset the toolbox with the Telerik tools as well but the components when using implicit styling just doesn't appear or work manually.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Hi Jason,

    This is quite strange - we have tested the case and the controls are available in the ToolBox even when using Implicit Styles.
    First, I will suggest that you reset the ToolBox in the following way:

    1. Close all Visual Studio instances.
    2. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0.
    3. Make sure that the option 'Show hidden files, folders and drives' is selected in the Windows Explorer options.
    4. Delete all *.tbd files.

    Additionally, could you please describe the exact steps to create the project with Implicit Styles, do you use our Visual Studio Extensions?

    Looking forward to your reply.
