Troubleshooting

Problem:

The Telerik® UI for ASP.NET AJAX submenu is missing and only the “About” option is available under the Telerik menu.

Only about menu is visible

Reason:

Telerik.[Product].VSPackage which is part of the VSExtensions failed to load properly, or was not installed correctly.

Suggested solution:

  • Close all instances of Visual Studio;

  • Start a Visual Studio Command Prompt (Start menu -> Microsoft Visual Studio 20xx -> Visual Studio Tools -> Visual Studio 20xx Command Prompt);
    Visual Studio 2012 Command Prompt

  • type devenv.exe /resetskippkgs and hit Enter;

  • Check the Telerik menu, or try to create new Telerik project (they should work properly);

Problem:

An error occurs when attempting to create a new Telerik project (“Error: this template attempted to load assembly ‘Telerik.[Product].VSPackage, Version=[Version], Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=[PublicKeyToken]. For more information on this problem and how to enable this template, please see documentation and Customizing Project Templates.”)

Reason:

Missing Telerik.[Product].VSPackage.dll file from [TelerikControlsInstallDir]\VSExtensions\VS20xx for VS2005 and VS2008 and [VisualStudio2010InstallDir]\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Telerik\Telerik [Product] VSExtensions[Version] for VS2010 and later.

Suggested solution:
