    I used to have about six or seven Telerik dlls in these folders when I did a rebuild. Now none of them are there but the .exe file seems to run ok.

    Since I will be deploying this, I'm just wondering. Have the dll files been folded into the exe somehow in Q1 2013?

    I just updated the project from Q3 2012 and see that the .dll files disappeared.

    Thanks -

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for writing.

    Probably the DLLs references Copy Local property is set to false. 
    For each Telerik assembly reference in the Solution Explorer, open its context menu, click on properties and in the property grid set the Copy Local property of the reference to True.

    For more information about this please read
    this help article.

    I hope this helps.

    Greetings,

    Yes, thanks. They had been set to copy local = true all along, not sure what made that change. But thanks.

    Hi Michael,

    I am happy that you found the solution. 
    This probably caused from the update of the DLLs references. Do not hesitate to write back with any further questions.

    Kind regards,

    It is caused from the Telerik Upgrade Wizard as it doesn't respect that flag.
    It should read that flag before it updates the dlls and then set it as it was set before the update.

    Very disappointing and an annoying task that has to be redone after every Telerik Update.
     That means at it has to be done at least 6 times a year ( 3 major Telerik updates + at least one service pack per major update ).

    Kind Regards,

    Ramius

    Hello Ramius,

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. 
    I can confirm that the Upgrade Wizard sets Copy Local to False. I have logged this issue in our Public Issue Tracking System. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it on the following link - PITS Issue

    For the time being you should manually set Copy Local to true.
