I have a project that I've spent over a week on so far (so starting fresh won't really work that well), that includes use of the AJAX Control Toolkit for .Net 4.5.

I have Visual Studio 2012, and I've installed AJAXControlToolkit as a reference via Nuget. I then made a build, and drag/dropped the controls into my Toolbox from the bin folder of that build.

My WebConfig has the reference for the toolkit as well:

I am building via TFS, to an online destination with Visual Studio Online, but every build results in this set of errors:

My build works locally (of course) just fine, but if I can't publish it, then it's a failure. I've looked all over online, but found nothing that seems to offer any help at all.

this mean ajaxcontroltoolkit is not defined in your project

make sure that in your project you add the ajax dll as a refrence and in each page you are using ajax the control is registered like this at the top of the page

<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="cc1" %>

The DLL is, as the screenshots show, part of the app's references. And it's registered in the pages as well.

I've removed it, and replaced it.

I used the DLL from the manual install (get zip, unzip, add reference to object on drive, add tools from object on drive, drag tools into page), and from the NuGet install (install via Studio, reference added automatically, add tools from dll in bin folder of application, drag tools into page).

Issue still exists.

Code Snippet showing assembly reference in page:
<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/SCEIP.Master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="profile.aspx.cs" Inherits="SCEIP.account.profile" %>

After much searching, and finding nothing, a friend of mine steered me to this.

Exactly the answer I needed. I ran those steps, and voila - build succeeded!

The comments left by others weren't the answer to the problem. More research on my, and a friend's, part, led to the actual answer.
