    I have read the designers help doc along with the install and user guides, but I have been unable to find anything that would be causing this.  I have a site setup and running on a remote development server.  I then open the project in visual studio via file system.  I can see the WebSiteTemplates directory, but I am unable to open any of the files. 

    I get "The Item 'Default.master' does not exist in the project directory.  It may have been moved, renamed or deleted.

    I notice that ass the css files have a yellow warning that they are not present.  I had also noticed that a few dll references were missing so I added them all back and was able to build, but this seems to be something else.  What am I missing?

    Hi Stacey,

    Thank you for using our services.

    This is a bug in the SitefinityWebApp project file. It is caused because we have changed the way how we distribute the control templates - we now distribute them with the Sitefinity 4.0 SDK. You have to download the SDK and get the control templates from there and add them to your project. We are going to fix this issue for our next release.
