    Hi Nicola Onassis,

    To upgrade your project to the latest version of NativeScript UI Pro you will also need to update the NativeScript related dependencies to ones compatible with version 3.0.0 (NativeScript). For example, you will need to update nativescript-angular and the @angular dependencies (if your Angular based project).

    In your case, you will need to update the TypeScript dependencies as NativeScript 3.x.x is working with TypeScriot 2.2.x and above.So we will update the typescript and nativescript-dev-typescript to the latest versions.

    The easiest way to upgrade the devDependencies and the dependencies to the right compatible versions is to create a brand new project (e.g with. tns create testApp --ng) and reuse the versioning of the dependencies in the package.json.
    For your convenience here is what the package.json of newly create Angular project looks like at this very moment:
      "description": "NativeScript Application",
      "license": "SEE LICENSE IN <your-license-filename>",
      "readme": "NativeScript Application",
      "repository": "<fill-your-repository-here>",
      "nativescript": {
        "id": "org.nativescript.testAppNg"
      "dependencies": {
        "@angular/animations": "~4.1.0",
        "@angular/common": "~4.1.0",
        "@angular/compiler": "~4.1.0",
        "@angular/core": "~4.1.0",
        "@angular/forms": "~4.1.0",
        "@angular/http": "~4.1.0",
        "@angular/platform-browser": "~4.1.0",
        "@angular/router": "~4.1.0",
        "nativescript-angular": "~3.0.0",
        "nativescript-theme-core": "~1.0.2",
        "reflect-metadata": "~0.1.8",
        "rxjs": "~5.3.0",
        "tns-core-modules": "~3.0.0",
        "zone.js": "~0.8.2"
      "devDependencies": {
        "nativescript-dev-typescript": "~0.4.0",
        "typescript": "^2.3.2"

    Notice the version of TypeScript (2.3.2) and nativescript-dev-typescript(0.4.0). 
    Update versions in your project's package.json file, remove node_modules and platforms folders and rebuild the project and the TypeScript errors should be resolved.
