I have configured the Control Panel to install my Telerik selection into "V:\Telerik".One entry in that directory is a folder "ToolboxNuGetPackages".

Last night I updated the Telerik libraries to the current version using the Progress Control Panel. A few minutes ago, I created a new solution for a WPF netcoreapp (in Jetbrains Rider), added references to the required Telerik libraries and tried to build the otherwise untouched solution.

It failed during the ResolvePackageAssets task, because nuget was unable to find the fallback package folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\ToolboxNugetPackages".

With a bit of help from StackOverflow I found that this setting is defined in the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\NuGet\Config\Telerik UI for WPF.config", and I for one did not put it there. In fact, I had changed it a few days ago,while investigating some other build failures; after all, it was a non-existing path, so things could not get worse. Now, after the update, the original path is back ... and as installer the Control Panel is my prime suspect.

So I'd like to ask somebody at Telerik to check if the Control Panel does write the contents of that file and if so, to make sure that it uses the actual location of the ToolboxNuGetPackages folder. 

In my case, I changed the path to "V:\Telerik\ToolboxNuGetPackages", unloaded and reloaded the project and it built without further problems.

 

I tried to submit this via the "Get Technical Support" item in my account page, but the UI is so user-friendly that submissions for the Control Panel are impossible there.

 

Kind regards,

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

I am sorry to hear of the difficulties you had and I am glad you were able to resolve them.

We have received reports from other customers regarding this behaviour and we have already planned a fix. I hope we would be able to push it live with the next major release coming in mid-September.

With that said I have added 1500 Telerik Points to your account for the time and effort you put into reporting the issue.

In case you have any other questions, please do get back to us.

Regards,
Nikola

Thanks for posting your experience Stefan. I ran into the same problem and your post helped me fixed my problem.

Can't believe Telerik isn't fixing this a month later to help people avoid wasting a bunch of time trying to figure out what is going on.

Hi,

I am glad to inform you that the fix for this issue is ready and pending release. Unfortunately, it cannot be pushed as a product hotfix and will go live with the major release in September. I apologize for any inconvenience this could cause and I ask for your patience with this matter.

In case there is something else we could help you with do not hesitate to get back to us. 

Regards,
Nikola
