    Hello,

    We have recently installed Silverlight 5, which caused some issues with Telerik since we still had the Silverlight 4 RadControls installed. We installed the RadControls for Silverlight 5, but the change from RadScheduler to RadScheduleView caused us some issues.

    We had heavily customed the RadScheduler, and being unable to use this control in SL5 is very inconvenient. Is there any way we can still use the RadScheduler from the RadControl for SL4 DLL even though we're in a SL5 application?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    If you want to use RadScheduler control you have to use RadConstrols for Sivlerlight 4(Q3 2011 version) instead of RadControls for Silverlight 5.  Q1 2012 version of the controls does not include RadScheduler control anymore.However, RadControls for Silverlight 4 should works as expected in Silverlight5 application.

    RadScheduleView is a completely  new control with more features and better performance than RadScheduler.
    I encourage you to migrate from RadScheduler to RadScheduleView.

    You can review the following help article with details how to upgrade and contact us with any problems that you may met during the migration.

    All the best,

    Hi,
    We are using 2011.2.712.1040 version of telrik controls. Currently we are using Silverlight 4 SDK and planning to migrate to Silverlight 5 SDK. Just like to know is there any issue with using 2011.2 version of telrik with Silverlight 5?

    Thanks

    One more doubt, In the list of supported browsers / OS Windows XP is not present. Since Silverlight 5 is supported in windows XP ,is there any limitation on using telerik in XP machine?

    Hello,

    When 2011.2.712.1040 version of RadControls was released, Silverlight 5 was not official yet. The first version which supports Silverlight 5 is Q3 2011 SP1 ( 2011.3.1220 ).

    As to the second question - you can check the RadControls for Silverlight system requirements at the following link:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/installation-system-requirements.html
    Windows XP SP2, SP3 is included in the supported operating systems.

    Hello,

    We haven't tested this version of RadControls  in Silverlight 5 application and I am afraid we cannot guarantee that there will be no issues.
