    I recently upgraded one of our projects to a more recent version but it had issues, so I downgraded it to a previous version (2011Q1).

    One of my programmers here did not have Q1 on his computer so I told him to install and when he tries he receives a message saying he has a more recent version installed and the install stops.

    Is there a way to install a previous version of the controls?

    I know different version can live on the same machine, my currently computer has the last 4 versions (plus a few versions of Radcontrols for ASP.Net). But I've upgraded all versions in the right order, not installed a previous version in the middle.

    Thanks

    Hello Alex,

    Thanks for writing.

    It is possible to install previous version of a product, if you don't have a newer minor update already installed on the machine (you can read more about minor and major updates here). In other words, if your programmer have the Q1 2011 SP1 release, he/she won't be able to install the Q1 2011 release.

    If you have clean machine, it's not problem to install Q1 2012, Q3 2011 and then Q2 2011 (in this order), because these are all major releases and they could be installed in parallel.

    I hope this information is helpful. Let me know if the problem persists.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Doug,

    Could you be more specific about the version of controls and Visual Studio you want to integrate? Thanks.

    It would be so refreshing if we could get a straight answer from Telerik.  The question is: How do you downgrade or roll-back to an earlier version of Rad Controls?  Instead of all this gobbly-gook about minor and major updates, couldn't we just get a checklist?

    Hello John,

    The easiest way to manage the installed versions of our products and install old versions is through the Telerik Control Panel. You can take a look at the following blog post which describes how to manage the different installed versions of a product through the Telerik Control Panel - http://www.telerik.com/blogs/by-popular-demand-control-panel-introduces-installing-other-versions-of-products.

    I hope this helps.

    Perfect!  The 'View All Versions', in the Control Panel, did the job.  Thank You.
