    Hello,

    I am developing a windows application. Previously I installed telerik controls using installer and all controls were working fine. After I formatted my system I downloaded all required .dll and put them all in assemblies and added all telerik controls in toolbox by drag and drop. I can build my project but when I try to click telerik control I cannot select them. Also when I add new control it gets added in the area where Rad Themes appear; but the control does not appear on the win form.

    Also previously I could see Rad Windows Form Application in Add New Project dialog which I don't see now. I am not able to add RadForm now. Thank you for any help.

    Regards
    Pathan L.

    Hi L. M. Pathan,

    If you don't have particular reason for not using the installer for RadControls for WinForms then I would suggest you to download the msi installation package and install it.

    If you can't use the msi installation package then you will have to perform some more steps in order to use RadControls in your projects.

    First in order to resolve the issue that when you drag a controls it doesn't appear on the form you need to either add all RadControls for WinForms dlls in the GAC or add a reference to the Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design.dll to your project. Make sure that you add reference to the dll with the same version as the other Telerik assemblies.

    The Telerik VS Project Templates that appear in the Add New Project dialog are part of the Visual Studio integration package. It can't be installed manually. You can install it as part of the RadControls for WinForms installer or through the Visual Studio Online Gallery if you are using Visual Studio 2010.

    I hope the information is helpful. If you have any further questions,please write us again.

    Regards,
    Petar

    Hello,

    I learnt from the Telerik site that msi installer - trial version is limited to 60 days only. Does that mean the application will not be functional after this trial period. I have previously worked with Telerik Web controls and we could develop an application without days limitation. There was only message appearing. 

    Basically we are freelancer developer and we develop an applications and sale them to our clients and we ask our clients to buy a license version of telerik controls if they are purchasing the application. Is there any development version of telerik controls for WinForm application? 

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    As far as I am aware only purchased licenses may be distributed (Royalty Free). Please refer to
    the license agreement and this help topic on distributing  for more information.

    Hope that helps

    i have the same issue with the controls in the object area.

    today i started MSVC 2010 and telerik informed me there was a update i downloaded it.
    I started a new project using all the downloaded assemblies and the controls do not apprear on the form.

    Telerik.WinControls.UI was referenced.

    the installed version of the assemblies work correctly

    please provide a detailed method for correcting the issue.

    Hi Robert,

    I'm sorry for the glitch.
    The problem is that Visual Studio cannot find the Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design assembly. This happens because the VSExtensions don't add it to the GAC.

    Please, try the steps below:
    • Close all Visual Studio instances;
    • Start a Visual Studio 2010 Command Prompt
    • Navigate to the %appdata%\Telerik\Updates\[NEWLY_DOWNLOADED_DISTRIBUTION]\Bin folder
    • execute the following command:
      gacutil /i Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design.dll
    • Start Visual Studio and load your project

    Let me know if that helps.

    FYI, we will do our best to overcome this limitation in a nearest release.

    Kind regards,
    Erjan Gavalji

    Hi Erjan Gavalji,

    I am using the vs2008 and I am facing the same problem. I installed Telerik rad controls in another folder and I can see them in my visual studio IDE but when I drag them into the design form, I can not see any of the controls placed in the form. Can you please guide me step-by-step how I can go about it? I followed the steps you provided but I am a bit confused about GAC. what is it? how can we resolve this issue?

    Will try version work when application is deployed?

    Regards,
    Jean Baptiste

    Hello Jean,

    If you use the Telerik Web Installer or the automatic msi installation package then you will get all required files in the GAC thus I encourage you to use one of them. You can find the Web Installer or the msi installation package through your Telerik account under the 'Manage products' | 'Trial downloads'.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
    Petar
