Hello Stacy,

I regret to hear that you have encountered difficulties with our extensions for Visual Studio and at the same time I am glad that you were able to find a solution.

There was a problem with the first release of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC VSExtension we made last week. We have deployed a fix on the next day (version 2019.2.404), therefore I suggest that you update the VSExtension and then try to convert a project again. To do that please:

1. Launch Visual Studio 2019
2. Select Extensions > Manage Extensions
3. Select Updates

You should see Telerik ASP.NET MVC VSExtensions with the option to Update it. 

Try to convert a project again afterwards and get back to us with more information as to what was the outcome. I am looking forward to your reply.

Regards,
Nikola

Manually edited the ../Views/Web.config adding Kendo.MVC.UI namespace reference seems to have fixed the project where the VS Extension failed.

 

Added: <add namespace="Kendo.Mvc.UI" />

 To:

 

<system.web.webPages.razor>
    <host factoryType="System.Web.Mvc.MvcWebRazorHostFactory, System.Web.Mvc, Version=5.2.7.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
    <pages pageBaseType="System.Web.Mvc.WebViewPage">
      <namespaces>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc" />
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax" />
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html" />
        <add namespace="System.Web.Optimization"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Routing" />
        <add namespace="ASOVTC.Internal.Web" />
<add namespace="Kendo.Mvc.UI" />
      </namespaces>
    </pages>
  </system.web.webPages.razor>

 

Also added to the application level Web.config

 

<system.web>
    <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.6.1" />
    <httpRuntime targetFramework="4.6.1" />
    <authentication mode="Windows" />
    <authorization>
      <deny users="?" />
    </authorization>
    <pages>
      <namespaces>
        <add namespace="Kendo.Mvc.UI" />
      </namespaces>
    </pages>
  </system.web>
