Please accept my apologies for the misunderstanding.
The reason why you were not able to find the Telerik.OpenAccess.dll in the Bin folder is that this assembly is installed into the Global Assembly Cache and automatically retrieved from there.
Nevertheless, in a Web Site the principle is the same. To add a reference to a project in the current solution, you should open the Reference Manager
window (Add Reference…) and on the left menu navigate to Solution -> Projects
. Here you should be able to see all the projects which are included in the current solution. Select the Model Project
. After that from the menu navigate to Assemblies -> Extensions
. In this dialog you should be able to view all the extension assemblies including the ones provided with Telerik OpenAccess ORM. Here select the Telerik.OpenAccess
assemblies and click OK
. After that you should be able to build your solution successfully. This is the method for adding references we recommend instead of directly referring to the files that you can find in the Bin/Release folder.
It will be even easier to setup if you choose the Telerik OpenAccess Web Site project template
. This template creates a Web Site and a Telerik OpenAccess Class Library, which contains the model. The only configuration that needs to be done is to copy the connection string from the class library project to the web site and you are done. Here
is more detailed information about the Telerik OpenAccess Web Site project template.
Let me know whether the proposed solution helps.
All the best,
the Telerik team
