    I have the following questions about the current Telerik DevCraft tool that you can download for a trial:
    1. What version(s) of Visual Studio can be used with the most current Telerik DevCraft tool?
    2. Would you tell me how to use the Telerik DevCraft with the different versions of Visual Studio?
       In order words:
       a. How would I have a Visual studio 2010 .net web form application utilize the the current Telerik DevCraft tool?
       b. How would I have a Visual studio 2016 or 2015 .net web form application utilize the the current Telerik DevCraft tool?
    Thanks for answring my questions!

    Thank you for your answers so far!
    I do want to ask the additional questions:
    1. I want to be able to save the download install files in case I need to go back to an older version of the Telerik.
       This could occur when I find some kind of a problem in my application and less likely in the Telerik tool. In that case, would
       you tell me how to obtain an install file that I can save to my company's source control? in addition, would you tell me
       how I would use the install file to update the code in the application that already contains the Telerik tool?
    2. Once I have the Telerik tool installed in my application, how would I know how to incorporate the Telerik latest version of
       the code into the existing web application? Basically depending upon the version of Visual studio that is used, how would I incorporate the  Telerik tool with the version of Visual studio that is being used? I would assume this would be some kind of a reference correct?

    If I decide to keep the web form application in Visual Studio 2010 since the application does not need to be a updated,
    is there any reason from the Telerik porpective, that I would want to use a newer version of Visual studio?
    1. Basically will visual studio 2010 be supported by Telerik and not be sunsetted (suppoted for awhile),
    2. Are there features in the other versions of the Telerik tool that would be a benefit to upgrade my version of Visual Studio?
    If so, what are these features I would want to use and why would I want to use those features?

    Hello Jassie,

    Regardless of the chosen Visual Studio version, you will be able to use all functionality of Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX. Our installers, the Visual Studio Extensions and the Visual Studio Upgrade Wizard work and support all Visual Studio versions starting from 2008 to 2019 Preview.

    You may also want to check this documentation article for more information: Visual Studio Extensions Overview.

    I do not know if this helps or confuses things.  Using the Telerik Control Panel application you are given check boxes to pick the versions of Visual Studio to install packages into.  I.E., if my developer box has Visual Studio 2015, 2013, and 2017 installed, I see a checkbox to pick which to install/update.  That should give you the options to install or not install your latest flavor of Telerik tools or not.
