A month ago when the ASP.NET MVC team released ASP.NET MVC 3 (Preview 1). Lot of developers enjoyed and tested this release. But still many developers unable to install ASP.NET MVC 3 (Preview 1) in their machine due to various reasons. Some developers claimed at here and here that MVC 3 (Preview 1) installed successfully but when they create a new MVC 3 project then Visual Studio says, 'The project type is not supported by this installation'. Some developers don't like to install new software just for testing new features. Some developers don't have permission to install the ASP.NET MVC 3 on their machine currently but keen to see and test the new features. So in this article I will show you how get ASP.NET MVC 3 (Preview 1) running on their machine another way.
First of all create a new ASP.NET MVC 2 application. Then open the Find and Replace window and select Current Project(or Entire Solution) from the Look in combo box and replace,
System.Web.Mvc, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35
System.Web.Mvc, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null
