    Hi,
          We are upgrading our systems to windows server 2008 -64 bit operating systems. Please let me know if the RAD editor light version (free version) will be supported on the 64 bit OS. Are there different setups for 32 and 64 bit OS or the same setup will work.

    Thanks,
    Chetali

    Hello chetali,

    RadEditor for MOSS supports windows server 2008 -64 bit operating systems. There is no difference in the usage of the control in both 32 and 64 bit systems.

    I built a new server farm on server 2008 with a 64bit implementation of MOSS 2007 and the only thing that didn't come over was the radeditor. I receive the following error:
    An error occurred during the processing of . Could not load file or assembly 'RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
    I installed the current RAD editor Lite on this farm and followed the instructions per your site, but it still throws this error.
    Thanks for your thoughts on this!

    Hi Eric,

    Could you download the latest version of the Lite RadEditor for MOSS, which is 4.5.6 (http://www.telerik.com/community/free-products.aspx) and upgrade to it.

    Here is how to upgrade your RadEditor for MOSS from a previous version to the latest one. In the instructions below we will upgrade from v4.0.0 to v4.5.6
    In SharePoint 2007 deployments use the following steps to upgrade an existing version of RadEditor for MOSS to a newer version of RadEditor for MOSS. The same instructions apply when upgrading from the Beta to the official release of RadEditor for MOSS:

    Uninstall the old version of RadEditor for MOSS as described in section Uninstalling RadEditor.

     There is no need to revert to the default rich-text editor in WCM and Web Part scenario (described as preliminary steps in the uninstallation instruction). Just retract and delete the old RadEditor solution from the SharePoint farm.

    The content of all RadEditor Web Parts as well as the content of all Page Content fields in WCM scenario will be preserved. However, this content will be unavailable untill you install the new version of Telerik RadEditor for MOSS.
     

    Install the new version of Telerik RadEditor for MOSS as described in section Installing RadEditor on the SharePoint 2007 farm.
    (Web Parts) To enable the RadEditor Web Parts, which were created with the previous version, open the web.config file of your SharePoint site and add the following line right above the </SafeControls> tag:

    <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=<old version>, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />

    In this case <old version> is 4.0.0.0, so the <SafeControl> tag should look like this:

    <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
     
    4. (WCM Field) To upgrade the old RadEditor publishing fields, paste the following <SafeControl> element in the web.config file as well:

    <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=<old version>, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint.FieldEditor" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />

    In this case <old version> is 4.0.0.0, so the <SafeControl> tag should look like this:

    <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint.FieldEditor" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />

    Alternatively, you can also upgrade the RadEditor fields through SharePoint Designer. Open each page, where you have added the field and modify the <%@ Register... line at the top:

    <%@ Register TagPrefix="radE" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint.FieldEditor" Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" %>

    Change the old version (4.0.0.0) to the new one (4.5.6.0).
    Note that adding the <SafeControl> element above is enough to make the old fields work with the new version. The second approach (changing the <%@ Register ... lines with SharePoint Designer) does the same thing, so it is up to you to decide which one to use.
    5.  Paste the following <dependentAssembly> element in the <assemblyBinding> tag in the web.config file:

    <runtime>
    ...
        <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
          <dependentAssembly>
            <assemblyIdentity name="RadEditorSharePoint" publicKeyToken="1f131a624888eeed" culture="neutral" />
            <bindingRedirect oldVersion="1.0.0.0-<old version>" newVersion="<new version>" />
          </dependentAssembly>
    ...
        </assemblyBinding>
    ...
     </runtime>

    Again, <old version> here represents the old product version (4.0.0.0), while <new version> should be replaced with the current version (4.5.6.0 in this example):

    <dependentAssembly>
      <assemblyIdentity name="RadEditorSharePoint" publicKeyToken="1f131a624888eeed" culture="neutral" />
      <bindingRedirect oldVersion="1.0.0.0-4.0.0.0" newVersion="4.5.6.0" />
    </dependentAssembly>
     

    6.  Restart the IIS web server or recycle the MOSS web application so the new web.config settings are applied.

    Note that the list items editor (also used in wikis, blogs, etc.) does not need any additional steps to upgrade to the new version. Simply uninstalling the old and installing the new is enough for the list editor.

    Still having issue with this upgrade:

    NEW 64bit farm - copied over DB's from current PROD 32 bit farm, sites with RAD Editor lite on them display this error;

      • An error occurred during the processing of . Could not load file or assembly 'RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.5.4.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    Followed the instructions above and entered this code to the respective areas in the web.config

      </dependentAssembly>

      Recycled IIS as explained

      System returns a 500 error - obviously due to the web.config

        Hi russ huebner,

        Could you provide me with the web.config file of your MOSS site? I will need it in order to help you further.

        Hello russ huebner,
        Could you rename your web.config file to web.config.png and then attach it to the thread? One other thing that you can do is paste the content of the file by using the Format Code Block tools.
        This way I will be able to use it and try reproducing the issue on our test server.

        Thank you.

        Kind regards,

        Hello russ huebner,
        I reviewed your web.config file and I can tell that you did not install RadEditor For MOSS Lite correctly or successfully. If the installation passes successfully you should find the following SafeControl statements in the web.config.
        <SafeControl Assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" Namespace="System.Web.UI" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditor.Net2, Version=7.3.6.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=852c9eb6525c1b53" Namespace="Telerik.WebControls" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditor.Net2, Version=7.3.6.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=852c9eb6525c1b53" Namespace="Telerik.RadEditorUtils" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditor.Net2, Version=7.3.6.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=852c9eb6525c1b53" Namespace="Telerik.RadEditorConverters" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditor.Net2, Version=7.3.6.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=852c9eb6525c1b53" Namespace="Telerik.RadEditorDesigners" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadSpell.Net2, Version=3.2.8.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b5dad7bf2bf594c2" Namespace="Telerik.WebControls" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.5.6.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.5.6.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint.FieldEditor" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
        <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.5.6.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint.ListFieldEditor" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
         
        What I suggest you is uninstall (http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/uninstalling-radeditor.html) and reinstall(http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/installing-radeditor-in-moss-2007-farm.html) the wsp solution again.
