    Hi,

    When control updates come out we like to evaluate them for a while before incorporating them into our projects.  Therefore, we  put a version of the DLLs we are using in a project into a folder in the project(ex. /Telerik/).  However, when we do this we run into a couple of issues.

    1. We are unable to build web setup Projects because of DLL resolution issues.  (I suspect these are due to #2)
    2. When we use browse to add a reference to a Telerik DLL in the project folder (ex. Telerik\Telerik.Windows.....dll) in some projects it works and in other projects it changes the path to the version of silverlight last installed (ex. C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q2 2010\Binaries\Silverlight\Telerik.Windows.....dll).

    Could someone let me know if what we are doing is not possible, or if we have an error in our technique.

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Hi Jerry Kurata,

     Yes, you can move the assemblies within your solution folder and reference them, instead of the GAC assemblies. Could you please elaborate a bit more on what errors you encounter?

    Hi Yavor,

    We receive a number (70-80) build warnings similar to :

    C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\Silverlight\v4.0\Microsoft.Ria.Client.targets(303,5): warning : Cannot resolve dependency to assembly 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView, Version=2010.2.714.1040, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5803cfa389c90ce7' because it has not been preloaded. When using the ReflectionOnly APIs, dependent assemblies must be pre-loaded or loaded on demand through the ReflectionOnlyAssemblyResolve event.

    As mentioned in the original post what we see when we add a reference to the DLLs in the project is the reference path is not pointing to the project but back to the location in which the installer placed the file such as C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q1 2010 SP2\Binaries\Silverlight\

    Hello Jerry Kurata,

     I apologize for the late response. I'm not sure what could cause this. Could you please open a support ticket and attach your application or at least the .csproj files of your projects?

    Kind regards,

    We had a similar issue where the reference path kept changing back to the Program Files Telerik folder.  We had to manually change the .csproj file in notepad in order to make the project reference the dlls from the correct folder.
