    Hi 

        I have  a solution that contains many references to Telerik controls situated in the following catalog

     

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q2 2013\Binaries\Silverlight

     

    I installed 2015 silverlight controls and now visual studio can no longer find the references (all except one). The folder is still there as are the dlls.

    The references in the project file look like this

      <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Controls, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL">
          <SpecificVersion>False</SpecificVersion>
          <HintPath>..\..\..\..\..\..\..\..\..\..\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q2 2013\Binaries\Silverlight\Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking.dll</HintPath>
        </Reference>
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Data, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Documents, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Themes.Expression_Dark, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Black, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Blue, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Silver, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Themes.Transparent, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
        <Reference Include="Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows7, Version=2013.2.724.1050, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />
      </ItemGroup> 

     

     One dll has a hint path - Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking, the rest do not. Viusal studio can find this reference but not the others - even after the upgrade (installation of the 2015 controls). On other computers where 2015 has not been installed the same .csproj exist and Visual Studio can find all the references.

    I cannot simply re-add the references to the exact dll in the correct folder (so that all the references have a hint to the correct folder as the working reference does) as we do not have the rights to check in changes on that project. I also cannot change the project so that specific version is = false. I cannot change the project at all. I do however need to compile and run

     

    How does visual studio find the Telerik references normally? Is it a registry setting that has been changed?

    Hello Shane,

    Installing newer version of Telerik controls, shouldn't cause such issue with the references of a project. If the binaries are located in folder within the project Visual Studio would be able to resolve the references without having a hint path. However can you share some more details - have changed anything in the project? Also did you to try to clean/rebuild the solution as well as to delete bin/obj folders?

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
