   1. Log into your Telerik account.
   2. Go to My Licenses and click My Purchases (or My Free Trials if you are a trial user).
   3. Click "Visual Studio Extensions, DLLs, Scripts, Source Code, DNN and MOSS wrappers ..."

   4. Ddownload the Visual Studio Extensions: (msi, 2545 KB) file

   5. Once the download completes, run the .msi file and follow the instructions.


The wizard will install the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX VS Extensions in the following folder:

Hi illumination,

To solve your issue we suggest you to follow these steps:

  1. Uninstall the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite
  2. Install  RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX
  3. Ensure that there is a "DisplayName" value entry in the registry that specifies the RadControls for ASPNET AJAX installation. This entry should be under the path [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{5B8AA098-FD9F-11DD-8B83-01C755D89593}]DisplayName
  4. Install the VS extensions


Hope that helps.

Hi,

Here is my reply to the other forum thread with the same question:

I'm not sure why the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX detection of the VSExtensions installer fails on your side.
    There is a workaround to avoid the detection and install RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions without having RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, but I would not recommend that. Just a small hint that came to my mind - did you run the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions installation as an Administrator? The installer needs administrator privileges to access the local computer registry and detect if RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX have been installed. Still, if you decide to try the detection-skipping approach, you could follow the instructions I posted previously:

There is a small hack, which allows you to have the VSExtensions without running the official RadControls installation. Please, keep it secret ;-). If you run the Telerik.Web.UI_2009_1_311_VSExtensions.msi from the command line, providing the SKIPRADCONTROLSSEARCH=true argument, you will get the controls installed, i.e.
Telerik.Web.UI_2009_1_311_VSExtensions.msi SKIPRADCONTROLSSEARCH=true

To uninstall the package you should use the same argument, i.e.
msiexec /x Telerik.Web.UI_2009_1_311_VSExtensions.msi SKIPRADCONTROLSSEARCH=true

Please note, this is just a hack for testing purposes. It installs the accompanying files to the <SYSTEMROOT>\INSTALLDIRRADCONTROLS folder. When using that, you also need to browse to the Telerik.Web.UI assembly manually. There is no validation in the Project Configuration Wizard, so missing to navigate to a proper Telerik.Web.UI assembly would result in an error.


    I would recommend another approach though. As you probably already know, we released RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 SP2 yesterday. We shipped a new installer with the SP2 release, which includes the VSExtensions in it. You can find the MSI download in your ClientNet:

ClientNet: Download New Installer Beta

Please give it a try and let me know if everything is fine now. Please note, you need to run the MSI as an administrator.

Kind regards,

Finally got it to install VSE. I must completely turn off UAC Control in Vista. If the UAC Control is on then it will fail to recognize if the ASPNET AJAX is installed. Thank you for your patience Erjan and all your help!

Hello,

Actually we found this a bug on our side and we already fixed it. Please, download the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions package and run it again if you do not want to turn your User Account Control off.
