Hi-

I downloaded Visual Studio 2022 onto a laptop which has Telerik Winforms controls installed (mostly used in VS 2019 currently).   What's the best way to make the controls available in 2022?   I've searched and found a couple of articles, but none has specifically addressed the new IDE version.   

Also, this one makes the controls appear in the toolbox, but I can't get them to drop onto forms.

Thanks,

Evan

Same behavior as above, I reinstalled Telerik and the controls did not show up in the VS toolbox in VS2022.  I followed the instructions in the link that was pointed out by the original message and I ended up with the same behavior that is states in the above issue.

Sam, could you please specify whether you are using .NET Framework 4.8 (or older) or .NET Core/.NET 5/.NET6? I am asking you this because with the introduction of .NET Core/.NET 5 and the WinForms designer, the Toolbox configuration doesn't rely on the GAC anymore and it is not necessary to have an installation of the Telerik UI for WinForms suite. The Toolbox version depends on the installed NuGet package:

Hello, Evan,

If I understand your scenario correctly, it seems that you already have an installation of the Telerik UI for WinForms suite and then VS 2022 is installed. That is why the Telerik UI for WinForms suite is not available in the toolbox. I can suggest to uninstall the existing version of the Telerik UI for WinForms suite. Then, download the latest version from your Telerik account and install it. During the installation process, the new VS 2022 is expected to be detected and the controls will be installed in VS 2022 as well:

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
