    Hello guys,
    I just tried to upgrade a solution to the Q2 release. Previously, the projects were Telerik Web Applications that were using the 2011.1.621.35 release. Attempting to upgrade through the Telerik menu item upgrade wizard loads the proper dialogs, backs up the projects properly, but fails with the following error after it has removed the references to the Telerik dlls in the project. The error is:

    Error executing custom action
    Telerik.Web.UI.VSX.Actions.UpdateReferencesAction: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    The dlls are not automatically added and the upgrade process stops. Also tried the Convert to Telerik Web Application option as well after the upgrade wizard had removed the telerik dlls from the project. This error occurs immediately on the first project it tries to upgrade in the solution.

    Hello Mark,

    We have identified some issues with the latest Upgrade Wizards. In the most common cases, the workaround is simply rebuilding your solution and running our wizard again.

    We will do our best to fix the issue and deliver an update for the Visual Studio Extensions mid next week.

    Please, bear with us some more.

    Regards,
    Andrey

    Hi,

    I am glad to let you know we were able to fix the issue and uploaded an updated set of VS Extensions in the Visual Studio Gallery:
    Telerik WebUI VSExtensions

    You should also be able to use the Visual Studio 2010 Extension Manager to download the update.

    If you are using Visual Studio 2008 and cannot get updates through the Visual Studio Gallery, you will be able to benefit the update when our next Service Pack release.

    @Digno Martinez The most probable cause for the issue you are experiencing is the Upgrade Wizard bug I previously mentioned. There is a high probability that there is nothing wrong with your project or system.

    To my regret there are no generic workarounds, besides rebuilding your solution. I would recommend performing a manual upgrade using the instructions in the following help article:
    Upgrading RadControls Trial to RadControls Developer license or newer version

    All the best,
    Andrey
