What is the correct way to compile controls from source? I've opened RadControlsVS2010.sln and tried to compile this but I have a lot of errors (metadata files missing, .dll's not found).... Ok, I am using VS2012 not VS2010, I don't know whether this makes a difference????
Is this even the correct method in the first place?

Thank you for writing.
Can you please specify, which version of the suite are you using? If it is very old one it might has issues with Visual Studio 2012. Nevertheless what you can do is to put the source in your main drive (as there are some very long paths which can cause errors, use a short path for extracting, for example: C:\Source). Make sure that .NET framework 2.0 is installed as well.
I hope this helps. I am looking forward to your reply.
Hello Dimitar ,thanks for your reply.
Extracting the files to c:\ fixed the problem, all compiles without any errors.
It is suite UI for WinForms 2015.1.225. I noticed that it was using the .net2 framework - is there an easy way to compile for .net4?
You can change the build configuration to Release40 in order to build the source code for .NET4.0. Attached you can find an image of the build configurations.
I hope this helps.
Many thanks for your assistance, this has answered my query.
Much appreciated :)
