    Since the integrated update to version: 2011.1.419.1040 the toolbox is no longer shown in the IDE.  I've tried using the Toobox configurator as well as deleting the tbd files.  Still they are absent.

    Hi Mark,

    Sorry for the inconvenience. To my regret the Toolbox is not entirely under our control, so we cannot be sure why could this happen.

    Can you ensure your project is targeting Silverlight 4?
    Can you try right-clicking the Toolbox and choosing Reset?

    Here are the steps that have helped us recover the toolbox when the Reset command does not help. Can you check them? Please note, that these involve modifying the registry and you should be very careful when performing them.

    1. Close all the Visual Studio instances
    2. Run Regedit
    3. Navigate to the following key:
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\ToolboxControlsInstallerCache
    4. Delete all the references to Telerik controls (if any)
    5. Navigate to the following key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Packages\{2c298b35-07da-45f1-96a3-be55d91c8d7a}\Toolbox (on a 64-bit machine)
      or
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Packages\{2c298b35-07da-45f1-96a3-be55d91c8d7a}\Toolbox (on a 32-bit machine)
    6. Increase the value of the Default Items registry value by 1
    7. Navigate to the following key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\ToolboxControlsInstaller
    8. Delete all the references to the Telerik controls (if any)
    9. Navigate to the following key:
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\ToolboxControlsInstaller
    10. Delete all the references to the Telerik controls (if any)
    11. Start Windows Explorer
    12. Navigate to the following folder:
      %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0 (please note, you should have the hidden and system files visible)
    13. Delete all the *.tbd files
    14. Run Visual Studio As Administrator and use the Toolbox Configurator to set a RadControls distribution in the Toolbox
    15. Visual Studio should get restarted automatically

    Let me know if these helped.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Erjan,

    Unfortunately I went down this road and it did not solve the issue.  I understand the challange of the toolbox integration.  I was able to manually add each Telerik component so I'm sorted.  I just wanted to get this condition on your radar in the even the new package had a flaw.

    Hi Mark,

    Yes, your help is indeed much appreciated!
    I'm sorry I cannot suggest a better automatic fix for the problem. Good that the manual Toolbox Item addition works.

    By the way, we will appreciate any insight you guys might have on reliably reproducing this problem so that we can search for a decent fix.
