    I'm an Installer developer for a company that's to expand its use of Telerik.  A version of one of our apps has a set of Silverlight-related Telerik DLLs.  Another new app which I'm tasked with packaging has another set of WPF-related Telerik DLLs.  Some of these DLLs have identical names (such as Telerik.Windows.Controls) but don't appear to be identical; at least they have different version information.  My questions are this:  Are they just different version of what is functionally the same DLL?  If so, are they truly backward-compatible, e.g., if one app uses an older set of Telerik binaries, and than another app which uses a newer set of the same binaries is deployed on the same box (and same folder!) will the older app continue to work?

    Hi Scott,

    We always strive to provide the same code base for the end user to work with in both WPF and Silverlight. However the two platforms are quite different, and sometimes we have to use different code in our internal projects to achieve the same thing in WPF and Silverlight. Basically they provide the same functionality but in different ways, and are platform specific, which means you cannot use the same dll in both platforms. 

    Hope this makes sense! 

    Kind regards,
