DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Extensions have supported ASP.NET MVC 4 since we released DXperience v2012.1 in June 2012. Here's short background:

- v2011.2:  Initial support for MVC 4
- v2011.2 minor updates:  we polished this functionality
- v2012.1: provides true MVC 4 support

New MVC 4 Projects

To make it easier for you to use DevExpress MVC extensions with ASP.NET MVC 4, you can use the following two methods:

1. Create a new MVC 4 project using Microsoft file templates then add and enable DevExpress MVC extensions to this project.

2. Or you can use the DevExpress File Templates (for mobile tablets too):

DevExpress ASP.NET MVC File Template

When you select the "DXperience ASP.NET MVC Web Application" template, it will bring up this wizard which allows to choose your MVC version:

Read the "MVC Web Application Template" help topic which describes the MVC file template, wizard, and project structure.
