    Visual Studio 2013 and ASPX view engine

    We have a VS 2010, MVC 2, ASP.Net 4.0 and ASPX view engine project that we need to upgrade. I have installed the below version of the VS 2013. I am not seeing an aspx engine option when i click on new website. Am i missing something here?

    I wanted to create a webproject and then copy paste the items from the old project to new rather than dealing with upgrade issues like on our MVC 3/Razor project upgrade couple of weeks back.

    You need to install MVC2 separately from the Web PI. MVC3 was included in VS IIRC, MVC4 is a nuget package.

    Little confused... Why do i need to install MVC2? MVC5 is a nuget package and i would like to upgrade to that as well with VS 2013.

    Our current application is aspx view engine, and i cant change that to razor as it will take at least a month. I am not seeing aspx view engine option when i try to create a new website.

    Looks like aspx is not supported yet, MS will support it a later date.

    Does any one know aspx view engine release date? I wasn't able to find any news about that.

    I said you need to install MVC2 because you said it was a MVC2 project -- "We have a VS 2010, MVC 2, ASP.Net 4.0 and ASPX view engine project that we need to upgrade. I have installed the below version of the VS 2013. I am not seeing an aspx engine option when i click on new website. Am i missing something here?"

    MVC2 pre-dated nuget so it isn't a nuget package. Installing that will get you the project templates and underpinnings which should include the ASPX view engine. At that point you should just be able to open your 2010 project in 2013 and it will work. Or at least that is my general experience for a very large, complex MVC1-MVC2 project we are still maintaining which is also using the ASPX view engine.

    Personally I hope they never bring ASPX views to MVC5 -- razor is so superior it isn't even funny.
