Hi Ricardo,

Thank you for writing.

I do not recommend installing assemblies into the GAC if you are not planning to share the same DLLs to a different application. It is sufficient to use the default option to copy them in the application folder. 

Still, there is a possibility to add assemblies to the GAC during the installation process. For example, you could use the Setup Project option in Visual Studio. Please follow the steps provided below :
  1. Create a Setup Project (under the Setup and Deployment Project Templates)
  2. Open the File System Editor by navigating to the "View/Editor/File System" menu item.
  3. Right-click in File System Editor window and select the "Add Special Folder/Global Assembly Cache Folder" menu item to add the GAC folder to the list.
  4. Right click at the folder and choose "Add/File..." to add assembly.

I hope this was helpful. Do not hesitate to contact me again if you need future assistance.

I'm using the Publish option in VS 2008. When I try to install the solution into another computer I get an error saying that Telerik.common dll isn't in GAC and it doesn't let me install.... I was looking for a solution to that...

Hi Ricardo,

Thank you for contacting me.

If you use the "Publish" option, you could set up the publish properties of all Telerik assemblies to "Include". This will copy all necessary DLL's to the application's folder and your program will find it. To do this, please follow the steps provided below:

  1. Open Project properties by navigating to the "Project/YourProjectName Properties..." menu item.
  2. Select the "Publish" tab and click the "Application Files..." button.
  3. For all Telerik's assemblies change "Publish Status" to "Include"
  4. Confirm the changes and publish project.

I hope this helps. Contact me again if you have any other questions.

I was having the same issue, so I set the Telerik assemblies to include in the publish properties for the project and I am now getting the following error:

"Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.WinControls.GridView, Version=6.0.1.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5bb2a467cbec794e' or one of its dependencies. Failed to grant minimum permission requests. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131417)":"Telerik.WinControls.GridView, Version=6.0.1.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5bb2a467cbec794e"}

The project list the following assemblies from Telerik to include:

Telerik.WinControls.dll
Telerik.WinControls.GridView.dll
Telerik.WinControls.UI.dll

My application uses both RadGridView and RadTabStrip

Hi Thomas Bloss,

Thank you for contacting us.

The exceptions mean that there are missing assemblies or dependencies. In your list I do not see the TelerikCommon.dll, which is required for our WinForms controls. Please, add it and change its Publish property to "Include".

Write me back if you continue to experience any difficulties.

All the best,

Hi Rikin,

Please check if there are any dependencies missing as described in the previous post. If that does not help try using non-GAC Telerik references to avoid missing assemblies. You can use the Telerik Upgrade Wizard(from VS Telerik menu) to switch to a folder based/downloaded distribution.

Let me know if that helped.

Hi Rikin,

 Can you confirm that you are not using Gac references in your application and that Telerik.WinControls.dll has been added to the setup?

Looking forward to your reply.

Hi, 

Can you confirm that you have the following files in your PublishTelerik\Application Files\ERP_[your_ version] folder?

  • Telerik.WinControls.dll.deploy
  • Telerik.WinControls.UI.dll.deploy
  • TelerikCommon.dll.deploy

If these files are present the ClickOnce application installation should work.

If they are not present - after you have set the Telerik assemblies to be included from the Application Files dialog you must also rebuild and republish the application again so the ClickOnce application can be updated.  

Please let me know how that went.

Teodor

Hi Rikin,

Sending the details of the application error can help us determine the problem.

Also, I suggest reading through the application deployment documentation if you haven't already as you might find something you have omitted in your configuration.

Hello,

Regarding the manifest issue you are facing - please provide more details so I can suggest an adequate measure.

Regarding the toolbox issue. I recommend doing a full reset of the toolbox (only the default controls will remain but you can re-add the Telerik controls later):

  1. Close all Visual Studio 2010 instances; 
  2. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory %localappdata%\Micorosft\VisualStudio\10.0
  3. Delete all *.tbd files (some of the files are hidden, delete them as well); 
  4. Delete the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wow6432Node(for 64-bit systems)\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\ToolboxControlsInstaller
  5. Start Visual Studio As Administrator and use the Toolbox Configurator to set a required RadControls distribution in the Toolbox; 
  6. Visual Studio 2010 should get restarted automatically  
  7. Open existing WinForms project (or create new one) and check the toolbox content.

After that the toolbox items should behave as expected.

Hello Rikin, 

Regarding the toolbox, I suggest doing the same steps for VS2008:
  1. Close all Visual Studio 2008 instances; 
  2. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0(C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0 for Windows XP)
  3. Delete all *.tbd files (some of the files are hidden, delete them as well); 
  4. Delete the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\ToolboxControlsInstaller
  5. Start Visual Studio As Administrator and use the Toolbox Configurator to set a required RadControls distribution in the Toolbox; 
  6. Visual Studio 2008 should get restarted automatically  
  7. Open existing WinForms project (or create new one) and check the toolbox content.

Regarding the GridView issue, I suggest opening a separate support thread so it can be handled by a team specialized in the area.

I hope this information was helpful.

Edit: I have edited the response to show the correct registry key in step 4.

Teodor
