    I downloaded the trial version and noticed there's no installer and no msi file. Clicking on ToolBoxInstaller.exe brings up a prompt and I have to figure out how the parameters work!

    Earlier versions used to have an installer that did everything. Now it's a bunch of folders and I have to figure things out. So now no start menu. No self installation into the toolbox. This really sucks.

    Why make it now more complicated and not user friendly!? I expect Telerik installers to get better, not worse!

    Hi Abdu Bukres,

    We have two distributions for ASP.NET AJAX. The one is an msi file (Automatic installation) and the other one is a zip which contains folders with dll files, scripts and skins (Manual installation).

    I am afraid you have downloaded the Manual installation. So if you want to use the installer for the ASP.NET AJAX please download the Automatic Installation from http://www.telerik.com/account/free-trials/trial-product-versions/single-trial.aspx?pmvid=0&pid=561. Under the installation link it is written msi file, 176 MB.

    I hope the information was helpful.

    All the best,
    Biliana

    Sorry my mistake. My eyes were looking at the links list and glanced over the first big link!
