move the ajaxcontroltoolkit dll to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE
add a new tab to the toolbox, then right-click the tab and click choose items. Click browse, move to the folder you just dropped the dll in...i think its also the default folder. then select and open the dll. Then just hit ok. It should populate your new tab with the controls

I can only see the AJAX Control Toolbox when I do a right-mouse click on the Toolbox and select [Show All].  When I do that no objects are selectable.

Most likely the current site you have opened has a targeted framework of 2.0 instead of 3.5...

Click website, then click start options.

then click build, and make sure the Target framework is version 3.5

Thanks!!!  The targeted framework was 2.0.  When I changed it to 3.5 as you suggested; everything is working fine.  Again, much thanks.
