The information you provided is not enough to tell you what exactly is going wrong.
I would like to ask you few questions.
What is your exact setup - do you set this fragment you shared as content of the Window - if so, how is it with Ajax?
Does the validation work when you are not using Kendo.Window? Does your validation support client side validation?
Could you send us a runnable project?
