There is way to install the RadControls suite without the VS Extenions. This can be done by choosing "Custom Installation" on the Setup Type dialog. Then you can uncheck the VS Extensions feature from the feature tree.
Currently we are working on the support of enabling and disabling the VS Extensions trough the Extensions Manager and it will be available in the next official release.
