    I've recently upgraded to SL5 and Telerik 2012.2.1001.1050.

    I am following the "Getting Started" article here:

    After adding the references, I drag a new RibbonView onto the stage and attempt to run the application.  I get a build error:
    The tag 'RadRibbonView' does not exist in XML namespace 'http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation'.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello Rob,

    If you have referenced the Telerik assemblies version 2012.2.1001.1050 in your solution, you need to keep in mind that this version comes from an InternalBuild which represents an unstable version of our controls and as such it doesn't add any controls in the VS Toolbox.

    This is why when you reference an InternalBuild assemblies in a solution and drag a RadControl from the toolbox into the same project, VS will reference yet another version of the Telerik assemblies in the References node (the official release version that installed our controls in the VS Toolbox). I think this is causing the issue on your side. As the Toolbox controls are from a different version than the version you've referenced in your project, you probably have multiple versions of the Telerik assemblies under the References node. But if you make sure that all Telerik assemblies have the same version, you should be able to use and display the RibbonView control.

    I hope this information helps.
