A success message concluding the log means that all is set up for you to start using DevExtreme ASP.NET MVC Wrappers in your project. If any issues appear during the process, address them by following the messages in the Output window. After that, repeat the steps above starting with step 2.

NOTE
Certain resources are added, but not linked, because either they are already linked in the basic project template, or they provide a very specific functionality. Those resources are: jQuery, JSZip for client-side export in the DataGrid widget and data for the VectorMap widget. To link any of those resources, uncomment the corresponding codelines in the AppStart/DevExtremeBundleConfig.cs file.
