With the new Visual Studio Extensions for WPF you can quickly create an application pre-configured to use Telerik UI for WPF. The fastest way to have such a project is using the Visual Studio New Project Wizard. Under the Telerik node there is a new node – Windows, where four project templates exist:
For convenience the same project templates could be found under the Visual C# -> Windows and Visual Basic -> Windows nodes.
After you click the OK button, you get the Create New Project Wizard, provided by the Telerik UI for WPF Visual Studio Extensions. The wizard detects all the installed Use Implicit Styles version of UI for WPF and lists them in a combobox. You can select a version which you want to be applied to your project. You can select what type of project to be created: Standard, Word-Inspired, Excel-Inspired or Outlook-Inspired. You can access the Create New Project Wizard through the Telerik menu when you need to create a new Telerik WPF application:
The Create New Project Wizard lets you:
Select a Telerik UI version from the list of versions detected on your system

Specify which assemblies your project would use. When selecting a UI for WPF assembly all dependent controls are selected automatically and vice-versa.
