    Assembly Reference "...\lib\KENDOUIMVC\2017.2.504.545\Kendo.Mvc.dll" was not updated properly. This usually happens when an assembly exists both in the GAC and in a local folder. Please, use the GAC reference instead.


    How do I only use the GAC? And what is the GAC ;)

    Hello Maurice,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The Global Assembly Cache (GAC) stores assemblies specifically designated to be shared by several applications on the computer. You could find more details about it here. With the stand-alone installer we register the Telerik assemblies in the GAC and also locally in the installation folder. This could cause the warnings you mentioned. 

    The references should be resolved correctly, so your project should work as expected.To use the GAC reference you will have to manually Browse to the location of the assembly in the Add Reference... dialog in Visual Studio.

    In case you are not using the latest version of our VS Extension, please upgrade it through the Visual Studio Gallery, which should help with the warning you got. To perform the upgrade:

    1. Launch Visual Studio
    2. Select Tools from the menu at the top
    3. Press Extensions and Updates... from the drop down menu
    4. Click Installed to the left. If an Update is available a button will be available to complete the process

    If you would require further assistance or have any other questions I will be looking forward to your reply.
