I just recently upgraded to Visual Studio 2008 Professional and installed the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX product suite (RadControls_for_ASP.NET_AJAX_2008_3_1314_dev.exe). All is well except that when I create a new VS2008 ASP.NET website project, the toolbox has a tab labeled “RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q3 2008” and lists all the individual controls. The problem is that all the controls on this tab are grayed-out and cannot be dragged to a aspx page to begin using the controls.
I have attempted several things to see if I could fix this issue without any success. Here is what I have tried.
1. I ran the “ToolBoxInstaller.exe” program that is included in the RadControls install…no change.
2. I added a reference to the “Telerik.Web.UI.dll” in the project references…no change.
3. I manually added the controls to the ToolBox by browsing to the “Telerik.Web.UI.dll” in the Bin35 folder…no change.
I am at a loss as to what is causing this issue. Any guidance would be appreciated.
