VS 2012 Ajax Mess

I installed ajax through Nuget..  And it was in one project I was converting from  2010 to 2012 (Visual Studio ASP.net).

I went to another project, and saw the AJax there, thinking it was the old version I removed it from reference and went to reinstall it, I can not find in anywhere to reinstall..

I went to reinstall through Nuget and it says it is already installed.

I went back to my first project and it seems to still be there, but looking through all the reference lists, I don't see it checked off as all the other ones are (I was hoping this would help me reinstall it..)

The next project I tried to convert did not have Ajax in it..  I tried to build a brandy dandy new one and that also did not have AJax in the reference list,  Nugent did tell me I could install it in this one, but when I tried, it errored out."External Packages cannot depend on packages that target projects.

So how do I fix this mess?  I thought I was simply removing AJAX from the specific project, I did not think I was throwing it into limbo hell.

how did you remove it?

I just went to the reference area in the project opposite clicked on the AJAX and hit remove.. I did the same for Crystal, and one in-house dll.. The Crystal I was able to add back in and same with the in-house one..  I always see that as just removing it from the project, not doing any permanent removal of the items.

I figured out how to manually navigate to the .dll ... (Hopefully it is the right dll) I did a search for AJAXControlToolkit.dll in the C:\ drive..  I got plenty of them, but date & time wise the path I think it was is as follows:


And this version acts as unforgiving with the controls as with the references..  It loads ALL the AJAX controls into the toolbox under the tab AJAXControlTookit15.1 ...   If you go into the Choose items area and uncheck any they are permanently from the Choose items list, so hopefully you will not want them later..  But at least the perm delete is only for the project.. Luckily I did it to a new project that was little more then a shell.. I removed the project and recreated it and I got the AJAX tools in the toolkit again ALL OF THEM...
