    I've just added a solution to a server and on adding the web part to the page get the following error:

    System.InvalidOperationException: Telerik.Web.UI.RadRating with ID='RadRating0' was unable to find an embedded skin with the name 'WebBlue'.

    I have used Gacutil.exe to add the reference to Telerik.UI.dll and ..Skins.dll. Both are definitely copied over but in SharePoint LogViewer there still remains a problem with using the 'WebBlue' skin on the RadRatings. Has anyone managed to solve this problem before? How do you carry over the skins added within the solution?

    Hi Matt,

    You need to ensure that the Telerik assemblies you installed in GAC are correctly referenced in your project. Also, the version of both assemblies should be the same, you could use the following blog post to check if this is the case:

    More information about the encountered issue can be found in the Skins Troubleshooting help article:
