kendo ui autocomplete with json <HELP>

I'm sure i'm just missing the basics.   I have a json file on my IIS Web Server (Windows 2012) located under a folder called "Jsond"

For testing i created the json file from : http://www.json-generator.com/

I have no idea why i can't get the code from Kendo UI web site to work on my local test box?  What I'm i missing or need to learn.
(using MS visual studio 2013 (free) to code and test with)

I have a feeling it has something with the URL, but google is not finding me anything.

 <input id="autocomplete" />
    <script>
var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
  transport: {
    read: {
      url: "/jsond/json.json",
      dataType: "json"
    }
  }
});
$("#autocomplete").kendoAutoComplete({
  dataSource: dataSource,
  dataTextField: "name"
});
    </script>

OK, the dataType "jsonp" is for cross domain requests.  If you are requesting within the same domain, is should be "json" ... as per the documentation.

Are there any errors returned anywhere when your code executes?
