The issue might be caused due to applying references to binaries that are a different version. Please check your local installations and if there are multiple installations of the Telerik UI for WPF suite, delete the older and unused versions. Can you also try creating a standard WPF project from scratch and manually add the needed Telerik references. What is the result in such case?
