    We need to disable embedded JQuery used in latest Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX 2017.3.913 library since it is using old jQuery version (version 1.11.1) and we have been advised to refer to disabling the embedded jQuery to do it (Ticket ID:1143165).

    Unfortunately disabling it through web.config Telerik.ScriptManager.EnableEmbeddedjQuery key doesnt work. The application still loads old jQuery file.

    We cannot use following suggestion to disable embedded jQuery since existing application is heavily depend on <asp:ScriptManager> and changing it to <telerik:RadScriptManager> breaks the existing code.


    Disable the built-in jQuery on a concrete page.

    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server" EnableEmbeddedjQuery="false"><Scripts><asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" /><asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryExternal.js" /><asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryPlugins.js" /></Scripts></telerik:RadScriptManager>


    Appreciate if you could help us with this.

    Hello Lak,

    You can try the following which works on my side:

    Open the web.config and set:

      <add key="Telerik.ScriptManager.EnableEmbeddedjQuery" value="false" />

    After that configure the ScriptManager as follows:

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
            <asp:ScriptReference Path="~/jquery-3.3.1.min.js" />
            <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" />
            <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js" />
            <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryPlugins.js" />

    Progress Telerik

    Thanks Rumen.

    I tried your suggestion but that doesnt work in my project. I testing the solution in a new asp.net web form project. 

    It works (disable embedded JQuery) only when I use 

    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server" EnableEmbeddedjQuery="false">


    Do I need to add anything else in web.config?
