    Hello,

    It is likely that you have not included the Telerik assemblies with the exe, and if they are not installed on the target computer then you won't be able to use it. Please follow this guide on application deployment for Telerik RadControls for WinForms

    Hope that helps

    Hello again,

    Additionally, you should also be aware of the Telerik guidelines on re-distributing your aplication that will contain the Telerik assemblies.
    http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/installation-deployment-and-distribution-redestributing-telerik-radcontrols-for-windows.html

    I hope you find this extra information also useful.
    Regards,
    Richard

    Hi Jose Luis,

    I'd suggest creating a SetUp project to go with your main project. A simple explanation of which can be found here on MSDN.
    Create your set up project and make sure all the Telerik assemblies are set to "Copy Local" as per the link in my first reply.

    For more information, also see this forum post which also answers this question.

    Hope that helps
    Richard
