    I have my assemblies in a "lib" folder, and when I reference them that way, the app will run fine, but I've lost all design-time support.  This has happened in the past with previous releases as well.

    How to fix?

    Hi Arash,

    Could you please describe exactly issues did you get with the design-time functionality?
    Did you get any errors when dragging an item or not?

    Dear Ivailo,

    Yes, nothing shows up in blend, it will say "RadLoopingList doesn't exist in namespace Telerik.Controls.Primitives" or something to that effect.

    If I simply remove the DLLs and re-add them but reference the ones that are in the Program Files directory (where they were installed to) then it works fine.

    The problem only occurs when I reference any of the DLLs after I move them into a local lib folder.

    Do I have to move more than just the DLLS to keep design-time support??

    Hello Arash,

    The design-time support is ensured by the DLLs that are situated in the Design folder which is on level with the standard Telerik assemblies. You should make sure this folder and its contents are also copied to the lib folder in case you want to have design time support.

    Let me know in case you need further assistance here.

    Kind regards,
