    Today I discovered the following file in my build folder: Telerik.Windows.Data.dll

    Upon further research, I discovered that this file is listed as a dependency for RadMap:
    http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/installation-and-deployment/deploying-telerik-ui/installation-installing-dependencies-wpf.html

    I have 3 projects using the map and only one has this file in the build folder. Two are using WPF 4.5 and one is using WPF 4.0. I've been sending out the installations for years without this file and haven't had a problem. Can you explain why this file is needed? Also any idea why it is only just now showing up for this one project?

    These are the two files I am actually referencing:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for WPF\Binaries.NoXaml\WPF45\Telerik.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.dll
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for WPF\Binaries.NoXaml\WPF45\Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll

    Hello Jason,

    In the common case RadMap doesn't need Telerik.Windows.Data assembly. The map control is using the assembly only in a scenario where the DataMappings collection of the layer is populated. RadMap will work properly even without the Telerik.Windows.Data dll. However, if you decide to use the DataMappings collection I recommend you to include the Data dll.

    Basically, the Telerik.Windows.Data assembly contains classes used in data scenarios (data binding helpers, custom collections, etc.) and some of our controls requires them. So, if you are using other controls (different than RadMap) from the DataVisualization dll we recommend adding also the Data assembly.

    Hi Jason,

    As for the second questions - since, I am not familiar with your setting and build structure I cannot be sure why the dll file is displayed there.
