I have been doing some work on a asp.net webforms website that has been "upgraded" to also include the mvc bits. One issue I ran into was an error when trying to create a strongly typed view. I was receiving the below exception:
Parser Error Message: Could not load type 'System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<MyViewModel>'.
I also was not getting intellisense in my View page when trying to access the Model property.
It sounds like this relates to dll references, and I found the solution at the below link.
What I did to resolve was to create a new MVC project and then copy the web.config from the Views directory to my older webforms website. That did the trick...
