    I'm just starting with WP8 development and want to try these very nice Telerik RadControls.

    Here'what I did:

    • Install Visual Studio 2012 Pro
    • Install Windows Phone 8 SDK
    • Install Telerik RadControls for Windows Phone 8 Trail (used RadControls_for_WindowsPhone8_2013_1_0418_TRIAL.msi)

    When I create a new project based on the Telerik template I can only target Windows Phone 7.1 (only item in the dropdown menu). I also updated to Visual Studio Update 2 and "repaired" the Telerik installation, but that didn't help.

    When using the default templates I can use Telerik controls and deploy the app deploy to the WP8 emulator, so all looks fine, except for the Telerik template.

    Hello Mischa,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Can you please confirm that there is Silverlight 5 SDK currently installed on your machine? In case it is not installed I would suggest installing it and try again. The following link will navigate to the download page of Microsoft Silverlight 5 SDK: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=28359

    Please let me know how it is going.

    Regards,
    Dyanko

    Installed Silverlight 5 SDK and did a "repair" action on the Windows Phone 8 RadControls in the Telerik control panel. That did the job.

    Just clicked through the wizard and deployed the app, everything working perfectly.
