    I've installed the Telerik VS extensions successfully.  I have an existing application that is already using Telerik controls extensively.

    When I look under the new Telerik menu in VS, the only option that is enabled is "Convert To Telerik Web Application".  I've used this option even though we already had all the necessary configurations in web.config.

    All the other options in the menu (Add RadControls Template, Add RadGrid Template, etc) are disabled, even when my open document is an aspx page in design view.  What am I missing?

    Hi Cory,

    Yes, this happens because RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions currently uses a project property to indicate that the website/webapplication already uses the VSExtensions. This is because the VSExtensions add perform several actions on the project while converting and we found the project property as the most appropriate way of checking that.

    We are considering another option for the next major release though, which will remove the need of first "converting" the website/web application.

    In the mean time all you need to do is run the "Convert to Telerik Web Application" wizard and you will get the other menu options available.
