I'm using Visual Studio 2008 and I want to use some of the components in the ajax control toolkit.  I downloaded the toolkit and I'm following the instructions here: http://www.asp.net/AJAX/AjaxControlToolkit/Samples/Walkthrough/Setup.aspx  to add a new tab and pull in the tools but when I browse to the dll it doesn't import anytnhing into the tab.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong.

Did you download the correct version for 2008?  Did you download the DLL only, or the source code?

If you are using Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Web Developer 2008 to create new Web sites and Web applications with ASP.NET 2.0 and ASP.NET AJAX Extensions 1.0 then install the ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Templates for VS2008 below.

I'm using VS2008 but my app is still on the 2.0 framework so I have the Asp.net Ajax extensions 1.0 and I also have the asp.net 2.0 ajax templates for vs2008 installed.  As for the control toolkit I downloaded the source from the codeplex site.  http://www.codeplex.com/AjaxControlToolkit/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=16488

so, I started a new project and targeted the 3.5 framework and the toolkit tools showed up... so I I guess my question now is how can I add tools from the toolkit to my existing 2.0 app.   I thought there used to 2.0 toolkit once upon a time.  I REALLY don't want to have to upgrade my whole app

Thanks !

If you have Visual Studio.NET 2008, then you use the 3.5 version.  If you have Visual Studio.NET 2005, then you use the 2.0 version.  There are different download versions from the http://www.asp.net/ajax URL.

It makes it difficult when you are targeting the 2.0 framework from 3.5.

I actually only saw one version on the toolkit.  I saw different versions of the framework but only one toolkit download and like I said, it only works when I target the 3.5 framework.   Looks like I'll have to bite the bullet and upgrade my app to 3.5.   Thanks
