    I was trying to upgrade by VS2010 menu option: "Telerik/RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX/Upgrade Wizard"  
    from version v.2010.3.1215.40 to v.2010.3.1317.40
    and I've got two options:
    v.2010.3.1317.40 [Download]
    v.2010.3.1317.40 [Installation Folder]
    What do these options mean?

    Hello Ildar,

    You have several options to upgrade our RadControls and two of them are the following:
    1. Download an installation file (.msi file) and install it. In this case the RadControls will be placed in the [Installation Folder] defined during the installation of the msi file (by default this is C:\Program Files\Telerik).
    2. Download the new version of the RadControls through the Visual Studio Extensions. In this case the Controls will be placed in the [Download] folder (%appdata%\Telerik\Updates) in order not to overwrite the installed RadControls. This way you are able to use both versions when you want to create a new Telerik enabled project.

    So the Upgrade wizard give you the opportunity to choose from all installed and downloaded versions of the RadControls available on your computer.

    You have both installed and downloaded v.2010.3.1317.40 and this is the reason why you have this two options:
        v.2010.3.1317.40 [Download] 
        v.2010.3.1317.40 [Installation Folder]

    I hope the information was helpful.

    Kind regards,

    Am I right that if I choose "Download" option then I have to download the installation .msi file and install it?
    And if I choose "Installation Folder" option then Telerik program will download the installation .msi file and install it?
    But I have already downloaded the installation .msi file.
    Or do you mean if I choose "Download" option then installation process will install files to old installation folder?
    And if I choose "Installation Folder" then installation process will ask the name of new installation folder?
    What do you mean that Upgrade wizard give me options to choose from all downloaded versions?
    I did not see any options. So far I have only 2 options: "Download" and "Installation Folder".

    It looks like I asked wrong question. I'll ask this way:
    1. What will happen if I choose "Download" option?
    2. What will happen if I choose "Installation Folder" option?

    Thank you,

    Hello Ildar,

    The options in your Upgrade wizard means the following:
    1. v.2010.3.1317.40 [Download] - you will upgrade your project to the v.2010.3.1317.40 which have already been downloaded in %appdata%\Telerik\Updates.
    2. v.2010.3.1317.40 [Installation Folder] - you will upgrade your project to v.2010.3.1317.40 which have already been installed in C:\Program Files\Telerik (by default).

    These options does not mean that something is going to be downloaded or installed. They mean that the available versions of the RadControls have already been downloaded or installed.

    You have downloaded the same version (v.2010.3.1317.40) twice. Once as an msi file (which you installed on your machine) and once through the VSExtensions (probably by using Get Latest Version button in the Upgrade wizard). This is the reason to have v.2010.3.1317.40 [Installation Folder] and v.2010.3.1317.40 [Download].

    If I have two options then I suspect they differ from each other.
    What is the difference between these two options affecting my compilations?

    Thank you,

    Hello Ildar,

    The only difference between this two options is the location of the distributions on your machine. So you have one and the same version of our RadControls situated in two different places on your computer. Hence no mater which option you  will choose you are going to use v.2010.3.1317.40 of the RadControls and there won't be any differences in any aspects (compilation, etc.)

    Best wishes,

    I am sorry I was confused by these two options.
    But what is the logic of putting the same thing in different options?

    Thank you,

    Hello Ildar,

    The VSExtensions download RadControls in a different place than the installation folder of the RadControls because this way the installed version is not overwritten by the downloaded one and the user is able to use both version.

    On the other hand you decide which approach to choose when you want to Upgrade the RadControls to a newer version. I don't know why you have first downloaded the distribution for v.2010.3.1317.40 through the VSExtensions and after that you have decided to download the msi file for the same version and to install it.
    Choosing only one of this options is enough in order to update the RadControls.

    It was a bug in Telerik. You can check my previous ticket.
    Teodor Angelov sent me custom built VSIX package.
    After that I get notice that there is new version of Telerik.
    I just was going to install "normal" not custom version.
    Am I right that in order to install new public (not custom) version I need to choose "Installation Folder"?

    When I clicked in VS menu option "Telerik" and then "VSExtensions Options"
    I've got:
    "Unable to generate a temporary class (result=1).
    error CS006: Metadata file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Telerik\Telerik UserSettings VSExtensions\2010.3.1214.0\Telerik.UserSettings.dll' could not be found"

    The snapshot of error message windows is attached.
    Where that file I can take from?

    Thank you,

    Hi Ildar,

    This thread became a bit long one and I'm sorry we were still unable to help.
    To my regret haven't come across this exact error before and I can't help with a direct reply.

    I'm not sure if I understood the problem in its entirety, but I would suggest a clean setup of the VSExtensions. Here are the steps to do that:
    1. Close all Visual Studio instances;
    2. Start a Windows Explorer and navigate to the %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions folder (on Windows7 and Windows Vista you could paste this to the address bar);
    3. Check if there is a Telerik folder and delete it if existing;
    4. Navigate to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions folder and delete the Telerik subfolder;
    5. Visit the Visual Studio Online Gallery and download the Telerik VSExtensions you would need (Telerik WebUI VSExtensions handle the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions) to a folder of your choice (e.g. C:\Install);
    6. Start a Visual Studio 2010 Command Prompt and navigate to the folder you downloaded the VSIX;
    7.  type vsixinstaller /a [VSPackageName],
      e.g. vsixinstaller /a Telerik.WebUI.VSPackage.vsix for the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions, hit ENTER and follow the wizard.
    8. Start Visual Studio and check if everything will be okay now.

    The extensions we published to the Online Gallery are the most recent official ones.

    Let me know if that helps.

    hello Biliana Ficheva,

    While upgradation of Telerik radcontrols for ASP.NET ajax i reach one point where i seek your guidance. In some blogs i have read that the Telerik RadControl Upgrade Wizard simply replace the existing DLL files with the Upgraded DLL files. So my question is, does make any difference when i directly replaced the downloaded DLL files with the previous DLL files?
    so if this is true that "Upgrade Wizard" simply replaces the older version DLL files with newer version DLL files then instead of using "Upgrade Wizard" can we manually replace the older DLL with newer DLL directly?

    Apart from replacing the upgraded DLL files with the older DLL files, does Telerik upgrade wizard provides any additional advantages?

    Besides that, i have notice one more thing that, the Telerik "Upgrade Wizard" does not include the "Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll" file in project's bin folder.

    (Note : We have used the purchased version of Telerik in our project)

    Thanks,
    Ashish
