IS SItecore CMS 7.2 is compatible with MVC 4/5 ?

- Pranay on Okt 30 '14

I have installed visual studio 2012(supporting MVC4 and .NET 4.5) and Sitecore CMS 7.2 rev.140526. I am able to run the Sitecore using admin user and launch the website too.

I was going through this tutorial on MVC integration with Sitecore which creates an MVC application in visual studio and then integrates in the Sitecore CMS site. When I followed the same steps I got error. The MVC version used in this tutorial is MVC3 and the Sitecore version is 7.1. I have tried the same in my machine but got the error Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Mvc, Version=

From the error I understand that it is looking for MVC 5.1 but in my machine I have only MVC4. Will Sitecore 7.1 support MVC 5.1?

if it supports only MVC 5.1. Is there any work around to run Sitecore with MVC 5 or lesser versions.
