I installed the Telerik components (TelerikControlPanelSetup_2013_2_625.exe) that I need for the project I'm working on. However, I still get, "The type or namespace name 'Telerik' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)" when trying to compile. 

The red "Telerik" in the code does not have a "resolve" context menu item, as one would expect. I do have the following in my References for the project:

Telerik.Reporting
Telerik.Reporting.OpenXmlRendering
Telerik.Reporting.Service
Telerik.Reporting.XpsRendering
Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms
Telerik.Web.Mvc

Perhaps the version numbers are mismatched? They are:

Runtime version: v2.0.50727
Version: 7.0.13.220

These may differ from what I downloaded (presumably the latest), but when I tried to download/install the older version (referenced in our internal install list, namely TelerikControlPanelSetup_2012_2_809.exe, the install process fails. Those woes are detailed here:

http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/reporting/telerik-reporting/unable-to-install-components.aspx

So, are the Telerik components not recognized because the ones in my References are the older versions, which I do not have installed? If so, why do they not sport a warning or error icon?

Hi Clay,

In your case our suggestion is to go through the Upgrade Wizard. The Upgrade Wizard will guide you through the process of upgrading Telerik Reporting projects to a newer (or older) version of Telerik Reporting.
Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.

Great idea! I wish everybody would provide something like this (MS does for NuGet-installed things, which is also great).

However, based on that link, this wizard should automagically pop up after installing the new Telerik components and then opening a project with connections to the older version of the reporting components. It didn't...it still doesn't. Is there a way to force it to run?

Hi Clay,

In order to invoke it manually simply use the Telerik Reporting Menu and select "Upgrade Wizard" from it.
