kendo ui autocomplete with json <HELP>

Last Modified: 2015-09-25
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" />
var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
  transport: {
    read: {
      url: "/jsond/json.json",
      dataType: "json"
  dataSource: dataSource,
  dataTextField: "name"
