    I have installed the nuget packages Telerik.DataAccess.Core(2016.1.224.1) and Telerik.DataAccess.Fluent(2016.1.224.1) in Visual Studio 2015 but the templates: Telerik Data Access Domain Context, Telerik Data Access Domain Model and Telerik Data Access Fluent Model not yet appear.

    How can I create a Telerik Data Access Domain Model (.rlinq) from a Template in Visual Studio 2015?

    Hello onivia,

    The absence of the code generation templates is expected. The reason for it is that effective since Q2 2015, the support for .rlinq files was deprecated. Currently, Data Access Q1 2015 is the last version of Data Access that distributes the Visual Studio integration and it supports Visual Studio 2010, 2012, and 2013 (more details regarding the deprecation of the Visual Studio integration are available in this blog post).

    In your case, when you need to generate a new model, I would recommend you to try our code generation tool distributed through the Telerik.DataAccess.Fluent.CodeGeneration NuGet package. You will find more information about the tool in this post.

    Additionally, if you have to maintain existing applications that consume Data Access and use .rlinq files, you can apply any of the following suggestions:

    - Option 1: Migrate the .rlinq file to a fluent model and integrate the NuGet packages. The details and the workflow about the migration process are available here.
    - Option 2: Freeze the version of Data Access on Q1 2015. Since Data Access Q1 2015 is the last version that distributes the Visual Studio integration, with this option you won't need to migrate the model.

    In both cases, you will need to obtain Data Access Q1 2015. You can do so by following this download link.

    I hope this helps.
