    First of all, I'd like to preface this by saying the issue appears to be fixed in the Telerik_AJAX_controls_2011_3_1115_for_SharePoint_2010_Dev release a couple weeks ago; I'm posting it here in case someone else runs into it, and like me, found nothing in searches regarding the error. 

    Anyway, there a bug in the MSI installer for the Telerik AJAX controls 2011.2.915 for SharePoint 2010.  I installed using Telerik_AJAX_controls_2011_2_915_for_SharePoint_2010_Dev.msi but when I try to activate the SPRadGrid Feature (or any of the others, for that matter), I get this error: 

    [SPException: Failed to instantiate file "TelerikSPRadGridWebPart.dwp" from module "TelerikSPRadGridWebPart":
    Source path "Features\RadGridFeature\RadGridSharePoint\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart.dwp" not found.]

    If you look in the 14 hive, the actual path to the web part is:  
        FEATURES\RadGridFeature\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart
    and not: 
        Features\RadGridFeature\RadGridSharePoint\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart

    Also, the "path not found" issue exists with the WSP solution as well.  If you look, for example, at the elements.xml for the RadGridViewFeature, you can see the path is not correct:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <Module Name="TelerikSPRadGridWebPart" List="113" Url="_catalogs/wp">
        <File Path="RadGridSharePoint\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart.dwp" 
                            Url="TelerikSPRadGridWebPart.dwp" Type="GhostableInLibrary">
          <Property Name="Group" Value="Telerik" />
        </File>
      </Module>
    </Elements>

    This is also the case with the others:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <Module Name="TelerikSPRadListViewWebPart" List="113" Url="_catalogs/wp">
        <File Path="RadListViewSharePoint\TelerikSPRadListViewWebPart\TelerikSPRadListViewWebPart.dwp" 
                            Url="TelerikSPRadListViewWebPart.dwp" Type="GhostableInLibrary">
          <Property Name="Group" Value="Telerik" />
        </File>
      </Module>
    </Elements>

    If this hadn't been fixed in the new release, I suppose the most expedient fix is to unpack the WSP and fix the paths, and repackage the WSP, but I was surprised that this issue hasn't come up in the forums. 

    Anyway, hopefully this saves someone else some time.

    Regards,
    Mike Sharp

    We are planning to use your telerik web parts in sharepoint 2010 but

    SPRadGrid Feature is not getting activated.


    I could activate other 2 features.Telerik SPRadChart,

    SPRadListView Feature


    Also how can we buy the license version?

    Ok, So I found the fix in little different way till product team finds a fix.

    steps-
    1> goto Features\RadGridFeature\RadGridSharePoint\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart
    2> copy the dwp file
    3> upload in the webparts gallery
    4> add following entry into web.config
     <SafeControl Assembly="Telerik.Ajax.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=" Namespace="Telerik.Ajax.SharePoint" TypeName="Telerik.Ajax.SharePoint.TelerikSPRadGridWebPart" Safe="True" SafeAgainstScript="False" />
    and you can add the web part into any page and it will work but for me its not showing any data after editing the web part properties.
    It says No records to display even though there are records in binded list from web part properties.
    Thanks Mark for the path!

    Hello Mike & David,

    The issue has been fixed and the installer replaced with the new one that contains the correct files. Please, download it from your customer account. Your telerik points have been updated accordingly.

    Amit,

    What web part are you getting the error on - TelerikSPRadGrid or a different one?

    Hi Tsvetoslav,

    below error is gone now. Thanks!
    error ErrorText=Security settings for this service require Anonymous Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service

    But the feature activation is still not working for me so I used manual way to upload the dwp and its working fine.
    steps-
    1> goto Features\RadGridFeature\RadGridSharePoint\TelerikSPRadGridWebPart
    2> copy the dwp file
    3> upload in the webparts gallery

    Now I would like to know how to get licensed version. We do have a telerik dev license.

    Hi Amit,

    The SharePoint Acceleration Kit is still in CTP. We plan to introduce it officially as a Telerik product, although no definite timeframe can be supplied at this time. The licensing/pricing scheme will be published on our website, as soon as we have an official version of the product.

    However, please note that all RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX can be easily integrated in all SharePoint 2007/2010 sites. The RadEditor, RadGrid, RadListView and RadScheduler for ASP.NET AJAX come with custom wrappers (web parts) that can be immediately plugged in any SharePoint project. Documentation and sample Telerik sites for Sharepoint 2007 and Sharepoint 2010 are provided.

    I hope the provided information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

    Hi Donna,

    Thanks for this input.
    The RadEditor, RadGrid, RadListView and RadScheduler for ASP.NET AJAX come with custom wrappers (web parts) that can be immediately plugged in any SharePoint project.

    So you mean to say we can develop a custom web part with rad grid asp.net control and we can use it in sharepoint 2010 right?
    Can we use ctp in production sharepoint site?

    The RadEditor, RadGrid, RadListView and RadScheduler for ASP.NET AJAX that Donna is referring to are already web parts themselves, so if the package is installed, you can simply activate the feature and add one to a web part page. 

    But you can certainly add any of the RadControls to your web parts, or master/layout pages.  I do it all the time. 

    I'll leave your CTP question to someone from Telerik, though.

    Regards,
    Mike Sharp

    If you go to:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\RadGridFeature

    create there a folder named RadGridSharePoint and copy (i have not tested moving the folder) into this newly created folder, folder named TelerikSPRadGridWebPart which resides in the above location, feature activation will work.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Jeff,

    You need the installer for the asp.net ajax web parts. Go to you your customer's account -> Manager Products -> DevCraft Ultimate -> Download Installer and Other Resources -> RadControls For Asp.net ajax - Browser All Product Files -> SharePoint 2010 web parts.

    Hope it helps.
