    I just ran the latest update (Dec. 8th) and now I have an error with Visual Studio Extensions, which have ceased to function.

    The message is: Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.VSX.Controls, Version=2009.2.1009.804...."

    I am not familiar enough with the extensions to even begin to look for a missing file or update a web.config file.

    Hi Tom,

    It seems that for some reason one of the VSExtensions assemblies has failed registering to the GAC. The best approach would be to run the installer, uninstall and reinstall the RadControls. The other workaround is to manually add the Telerik.VSX.Controls assembly (attached) to the GAC.

    Here are the steps to do that:

    1. Extract the assembly in the attached archive to a preferred location
    2. Run the Visual Studio Command Prompt
    3. Run the following command: gacutil /i "[PATH_TO_THE_Telerik.VSX.Controls.dll]"

    Let me know if that helped.

    Kind regards,

    This worked as intended.

    Note to Vista users: you must run the command prompt as Administrator, otherwise it fails.
