I reinstalled the SP and now vbs files are color coded, but that's the only one that is working correctly.
I have noticed problems with the Designer's Optimized Code Generation option causing problems with Telerik controls. This doesn't appear to be a problem in basic use of the controls.
But if your design includes subprojects and/or nested master pages then the problem becomes apparent (and very annoying). This error only affects the Designer view of the web applications, as the actual code on your test web server will render just fine. But it does give you false errors that will waste your time.
The best bet is to simply turn off the Optimized Code Generation until Telerik puts out a new update that compensates for Microsoft's new "feature" with code optimization.
Also, the new SP1 does not completely embrace nested master pages or nested CSS Stylesheets. The designer does work a great deal better in rendering pages than in VS2005, but you still get annoying Intellisense and Warnings on your build when you have try to build a Child Master Page in a seperate Sub Web Application in the same solution. This is the direction we appear to be going to support larger web applications, but Microsoft development on the Visual Studio has a long way to go till we get there.
Good Product, but we need more fixes!
