Hi,

I got the same error on server after publishing a working web site with a new version of Telerik.Web.UI.

Solved by checking the "delete all existing files prior to publish" from file publish options. (dll was probably not overwritten on server correctly).

I know this is an old post, but I am getting the same error even after trying to run the gacutil (which doesn't seem to work). Is there an updated method since it is 4 years later?

Hello,

Such an error usually means that Telerik.Web.UI assembly is not properly referenced. For example the assembly is placed in the BIN folder but the project is referencing it from the GAC or vice versa. It may also be possible that a binding redirect is used which also refers to the wrong .dll version. Therefore, I suggest you revise the .dll references of your project. 

If this not helps would be better to isolate the issue in a fully runnable sample and then provide it back to us, so we can investigate it further.

Hi Rajesh,

Can you please explain in more detail what problem do you experience and provide a video or screenshots of:
  • the error
  • the steps that you follow?

What type is your web project: ASP.NET Web Site or ASP.NET Web Application?

Best regards,

This worked for me after hours of trying all other fixes.

1. Remove all Telerik.Web.Design assemblies from the GAC using the Gacutil.exe tool. Use gacutil /u Telerik.Web.Design command for this purpose. Have in mind that it is required to execute the command as an administrator (run the Developer Command Prompt as an administrator and execute the command).

2. Clean your Visual Studio solution and make sure the bin folders are empty.

3. Update your projects using the Upgrade Wizard.

error during upgrade: Please, use the GAC reference instead in UI for ASP.NET MVC | Telerik Forums
