    We copied existing skin & modified its images & named it as "cool". I copied RadControls directory into my website & created new skin folder named "cool" & dropped all required images into it.

    Here is the error i receive

    Telerik.Web.UI.RadTabStrip with ID='RadTabStrip1' was unable to find embedded skin with name 'cool'. Please, make sure that you spelled the skin name correctly, or if you want to use a custom skin, set EnableEmbeddedSkins=false.

    Here is how i reference in my html

    <

    telerik:RadTabStrip ID="RadTabStrip1" runat="server" SelectedIndex="0" MultiPageID="RadMultiPage1" Skin="cool" ></telerik:RadTabStrip>

    I also tried using EnableEmbeddedskins = false, it doesn't throw any error however it doesn't apply any skin to the control.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi,

    I'm having this problem too. I've followed this tutorial http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/createcustomskin.html and http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/skinregistration.html but my skin is not showing.

    Hi,

    I found what I was missing and the custom skin is now showing! For anyone that might be interested, I was missing the runat="server" attribute from the <head> tag
