    Hi everybody!

    If anybody wants to change code in a telerik winform samples solution, prepare for miracles. Because there are some hidden things like if you change the project target framework you will have some bad time. I.e. Telerik Q1 2012 control pack for winforms, you want to add some linq queries to your test setup, but wait, it won't work. See image..... . So its fun having a project with target framework set to 4 and System.dll is referenced from .NET 2. So cool. Its such a big fun to lose time with these controls. I think it is too hard for you guys, to create a proper project setup. So prepare for fun. Oh and another thing if you wan't to change anything in the project file, after that you can't run the examples anymore.

    Hello Istvan,

    Thank you for writing.

    I have tested the Q1 2012 version of the project and there I cannot observe such a behavior. However, I managed to reproduce similar behavior with our latest release. The problem is that the displayed version in the project properties of Visual Studio is incorrect due to a missing setting in the proj file. I have logged this case in our Public Issue Tracking System and we will address it accordingly. Feel free to add your vote and subscribe for its status updates here: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/winforms/14777.

    Your Telerik Points have been updated for this report.

    Our examples are currently meant to work with .NET 2.0 as they are widely using the OLE DB data providers. Changing the Target framework to 4.0 will raise errors in the solution.

    I hope that you find this information useful.
