    Hi,

    For our current project, the customer explictly asked us to target for Silverlight4(SL4).

    The current latest release does not have 'out of the box' installation of SL4 design & runtime controls.

    What are the steps to take ?

    (install full MSI for SL5, and download the SL4 Dll ZIP, and then next: do I have SL4 design time controls in the Toolkit of VS2010?) ?

    regards

    Patrick Peters

    Hi Priscilla,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Since Q1 2012 our automatic installer (msi) provides only Silverlight 5 controls. If you need to use the latest Silverlight 4 controls, the only option is to download a hotfix (zip) with the Silverlight 4 controls.

    In order the take advantage of the VSExtensions, you can unzip the hotfix package in %appdata%\Telerik\Updates keeping the containing folder, e.g. you should get %appdata%\Telerik\Updates\RadControls_for_Silverlight4_2012_1_0215_DEV_hotfix. This will help the extensions to detect the Silverlight 4 distribution automatically. Design time should work as well.

    Having SL4 distribution in the correct folder on your machine, makes possible to update your projects to the latest version using the Upgrade Wizard (it will automatically detect the appropriate distribution according the project's silverlight version).

    If you use the Visual Studio Toolbox for SL4 and SL5 projects, you should change the currently loaded distribution in the Toolbox using the Toolbox Configurator when switching between different projects. When developing Silverlight 4 application the Toolbox should be configured to list Silverlight 4 distribution. Please, note that the Silverlight 4 distributions are versioned *.1040 and Silverlight 5 distributions are versioned *.1050.

    I hope this will help. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Hi Zine,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We've tweaked your account and now you should have access to previous versions that include SL4. To browse the previous versions go to Your Account -> Manage Product -> DevCraft Complete -> Download Installer and Other resources, then in the product pane click Older Versions.

    The last release that includes SL4 hotfix is 2011.3 1220.

    Let me know if you need any further assistance.

    Hello,

    We have recently renewed our subscription: DevCraft Complete (Formerly Premium Collection) with Developer License with Subscription and Priority Support.
    We have the need to maintain our software working with silverlight 4, but the only choice that your site can provide me is silverlight 5.

    Any idea how could I use your control in my SL4 project?

    I will appreciate if you could help us, any help will be really usefull.

    Thanks in advance.
     
    With Regards
    Take Care

    Hi,

    I see that you have access to the latest version of RadControls for Silverlight that includes SL4 hotfix - 2012.2.912. To browse to this version go to Your Account -> Manage Product -> DevCraft Complete -> Download Installer and Other resources, then in the product pane click Older Versions.

    Please, refer to my first reply in this thread which explains how to take advantage of the VS Extensions when working with the SL4 controls.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Chavdar,

    Thanks for your answer and sorry I had not seen the "Older Versions" link I was looking for in the "Latest Internal Builds" link. 
    Thanks again, now for the post that you explain how to take advantage of the VS Extensions when working with SL4 ... 

    I'm gonna test and if I have any further question I will let you know. Thanks again.

    Hello Nic,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Our policy for customers who would like to use older versions of the controls, is the following: They purchase a license for the latest version and we add a matching license for the version they need to their accounts manually. After the purchase has been finalized, you will need to email us at Sales@telerik.com  with a request that the older version be added to your account.

    Let me know if you need additional information.
    Kind regards,
