    I am trying to upgrade my ASP.Net MVC4 project to the latest version of Kendo UI. I used the upgrade wizard, but it broke my project and caused some issues. So now I am trying to upgrade manually.

    My question is what is the purpose of creating bundles for the CSS and JavaScript files of Kendo UI in BundlesConfig.cs file. My current project has these bundles added, but if I remove them, everything runs fine.

    Also my current project does not contain a reference to Kendo.Mvc assembly in the web.config file. So if this step is mandatory, then how is my project working now. And should I include it while upgrading to the latest version and what is the purpose of this

    Hello Armulator,

    ASP.NET bundles facilitate performance, because they reduce the number of HTTP requests. Using them is not required.

    The Kendo.Mvc.UI namespace should be added in both web.config files (especially the one in the Views folder), otherwise you will receive server-side exceptions.

    If you believe that the Kendo UI upgrade wizard has malfunctioned, please open a new support ticket for the VS Extensions product and provide the original project together with details on the unexpected behavior that you have observed.
