    When I open the Visual Studio 2010 Extension Manager, under the Updates section I see the Telerik Silverlight VSExtensions update. On the right side I see Current Version: 2010.9.929.0 and New Version: 2010.3.1109.0.

    But I have already installed the new version.

    If I click on the Update button, after Visual Studio downloads the new version (3.53 Mb) and after I accept the License Agreement, I get an error message saying: "The extension could not be installed because the following error occurred: Telerik Silverlight VSExtensions is already installed".

    Do you know how fix this?

    Thanks

    Hi Ciprian,

    It seems that the Extension Manager was not able to correctly compare the current version of the VSExtensions package on your side and the one on the VisualStudioGallery.

    My suggestion is that you remove the local Telerik Silverlight VSExtensions and add the new ones through the VSGallery.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Kind regards,

    I too am having the same issue (although with ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions Package).  I added this using the VSGallery in the first place.  How do I "remove the local VSExtensions"?

    Hi Dave,

    You could use the Tools menu in Visual Studio to launch the Extension Manager. The extension manager lists all the installed extensions and you could remove all the Telerik ones.

    Just a clarification: each of the Telerik VSExtensions consists of several packages, e.g. the Telerik WebUI VSPackage consists of the Telerik.CommonPackage, Telerik.UserSettingsPackage and Telerik WebUIVSPackage.

    Let me know if that helps.
