Is there a way to temporarily turn off the Telerik automated project config wizard when creating an MVC project in VS?  It does not perform all the normal tasks that can occur in VS.  Case in point, when trying to create an MVC2 project and the Telerik wizard kicks in, the project doesn't create the full set of out of the box project components (all the views, controllers, etc.) that normally get created.  And, if you cancel the Telerik wizard, it just stops the creation of the project components and you're left with a solution with pretty much nothing in it.  The only option I see is to uninstall the extensions.

Hi MarkNic,

You could use the ASP.NET MVC Application ProjectTemplate instead of the Telerik MVC one to have a default ASP.NET MVC Application created. No need to remove the Telerik VSExtensions.

Just out of curiosity, what do you lack in the Telerik MVC Project Template (and the New Project Wizard respectively)? Can you share your vision with us so that we can further improve the VSExtensions?

Kind regards,

I was using the ASP.NET MVC 2 template.  This was within the creation process for an Azure application.  As soon as I selected an MVC2 Web Role the Telerik project wizard appeared.  This would have been fine if I didn't want the forms authorization model, view and controller but I did.  Those components are not created by the Telerik wizard.  BTW, this behavior was the same outside of an Azure app.

I didn't initiate the Telerik wizard - it ran automatically, and when I clicked cancel, it left me with the Azure configuration project but no Web Role.  I would rather the see the VS project templates do their normal code gen process and then after the creation have the option to include the Telerik extensions.  They are nice and I like them but I won't necessarily want to include the extensions in all projects.

After several attempts trying different approaches, I uninstalled.  Even then, the wizard appeared.  It wasn't until I went into Extensions folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\... and deleted the Telerik folder that the wizard did not appear.

I will say that over the past several weeks I installed 3 different versions of your extensions (309, 416 and 713) to try to get the right functionality in my app.  I don't know if your normal uninstall removes the extensions folder and the multiple installs confused it but ultimately thats what I had to do.

Regards,

Mark

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the help. This was indeed a glitch on our side which we just fixed.
Please, find attached the Visual Studio Extensions for ASP.NET MVC VS2010 installation package.
To install it, just extract the vsix file to a location of your choice, double-click it and follow the steps in the VSIX installer.

As per the uninstall - yes, it is possible that the install of RadControls/Telerik MVC UI Extensions and the subsequent addition of the VSExtensions through the Visual Studio Online Gallery disable the uninstall of the VSExtensions through the installer. This is expected, because we prefer to have the RadControls uninstall only change the things it has changed during install.
As the VSExtensions, installed through the Visual Studio Online Gallery get installed to a different location, the RadControls installer does not change them.

FYI, you can uninstall the VSExtensions through the Extension Manager in Visual Studio 2010.

Let me know if that helps.

Kind regards,
