    HI,
      I am using Telerik controls for ASP.Net Q3, 2001.I tried the Rad Skin Manager amd was trying to change the default skin. Unfortunately there was only the default skin. All the other skins are missing. This is happening to me for all the controls. Can any one help me in displaying all the available skins for the telerik controls under the Skin Property?

    Finally i got the solution for the Skin issue in Telerik Rad controls for asp.net Q3,2011. Skin Issue on reading the post, i came to that the skins for the controls have been moved from Telerik.web.dll to Telerik.web.Ui.Skins.dll. So it is necessary to refer the dll from the Bin40 of installation folder to the project. The available skins will be available if we close and re-open the project.

    Thanks for your post.  What a shame the Telerik is so inept that they can't make this information more obvious.

    Hi,

    I should mention that this is not the only place where the change is announced. Information about it is available in the Q3 2011 version release notes:
    http://www.telerik.com/products/aspnet-ajax/whats-new/release-history/q3-2011-version-2011-3-1115.aspx

    And a sticky thread is added in the forums:
    Separate Skin Assembly in RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX with Q3 2011

    Can you elaborate on where would you like to see such information in future?

    I'm currently dealing with the same issue.

    I've done the following so far...
    - Added reference to the skins dll
    - Ran project upgrade wizard
    - Closed and re-opened my project
    - Closed and re-opened Visual Studio

    You ask what could be done...how about just making it work out of the box. Think of the amount of time wasted by every developer who has run into this issue.

    Restarted Visual Studio seemed to resolve the issue.

    Hi Callon,

    You should not experience this problem if you are using the latest version of the controls. Are you using Q1 2012 or older version? And is your project created as a Web Site or Web Application?

    I am having the same problem. I have added Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll to my bin folder and added it to the project. I have added a reference to Telerik.Web.UI.Skins. I have replaced "Default" with "Office2007" as my skin name in my web.config file; and I have restarted Visual Studio, but am still getting and "unable to find an embedded skin". I am running the latest release of the controls. 

    What else do I need to do?

    Thanks!
    John

    I was able to fix my problem by exiting Visual Studio and deleting all of the Telerik files in my BIN directory; then going back into Visual Studio and reconverting my project to a Telerik Web Application.

    Thanks,
    John

    I had the same problem. I had to add the reference to the skins assembly then restart Visual Studio. Many of you are being a little overly critical of Telerik IMHO. They didn't create Visual Studio. There's gonna be some quirks that are hard to overcome. Even Microsoft has these issues with Visual Studio and it's their own software.

    I had the same problem not seeing the other skins that were in my older version, here's now i fixed it (it was related to different versions of telerik dlls referenced/installed)
    -I removed the references in visual studio
    - grabbed the dlls from C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q3 2012  - use the bin folder for the framework you are running
    - copied those to a new folder within my project
    - then added the references to the dll in the new folder i created. I did it this way so so that it was clear which dlls i was referencing and will make it easier later to update/reference when the time comes.
    - close restart visual studio afterwards and all should work again

    Hope this helps
