    I've been having alot of problems getting the MVC extensions working. I finally resorted to starting up a brand new "c# Kendo UI for MVC Web Application". I start it up and straight away in the Chrome developer tools I see the following errors:

    Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid regular expression: missing / kendo.all.min.js:10
    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'jQuery' of undefined kendo.aspnetmvc.min.js:10

    I checked all the FQAs about these errors and confirmed that everything (web.config, Single JQuery reference, etc...) and everything looks good. Moreover, I tried to add a grid and I'm seeing :

    Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'kendoGrid'

    I've attached the sample project that I created.

    Hello Richard,

    I suspect that the issue you encountered is due to the reason explained in this sticky forum thread. That's why I suggest you download and update the files in your project to see whether this helps.

    Telerik says it's fixed with the latest but I was getting the same issue in a project I was converting. I changed the order that the javascript Kendo files were loaded and it fixed the issue for me. YMMV.

    So this produces the cannot read jquery property error:
    bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/kendo").Include(

    This works:
    bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/kendo").Include(
