We have a legacy component that uses OpenAccess and I cannot run or compile the project.  We need to make a small change to the component.
I am not sure what forum to post my question, since this project references an older Telerik product.
I found several web articles referencing a similar error.
Some suggested that OpenAccess_ORM was not installed, but when I run the .msi to install this product, I receive a message that newer version is already installed.
Another suggested that file C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\OpenAccess.targets was not present.  This was the case for me, but adding this file to that location did not solve my issue.

What else can I check?

Hi,

You may need to use specific version of Visual Studio in order to use and build Telerik DataAccess .RLINQ models.

Telerik DataAccess 2016.2.822.1 is the last version offering Visual Studio integration and .RLINQ model support. It requires Visual Studio 2015.

If you are using older version of Telerik DataAccess you may need to use even older Visual Studio.

Once you have build your project successfully I strongly recommend that you move to Code-Only mapping in order to use latest Visual Studio versions. See this post for details: https://www.telerik.com/blogs/benefits-of-code-only-mapping-and-how-to-get-them

First check whether openaccess.target.dll is present in the path c:/program files(86)/msbuild. if not, place the one. then install telerik q1 installer. I got the installer from my team mate as it is not available in telerik site(deprecated) .
