    So it seems that I've come into a poorly documented set of ASP.NET solutions that collectively include references to several Telerik DLL's.  I have been tasked with evaluating how easy it would be to upgrade to the latest version of Telerik's ASP.NET for AJAX controls, but I currently am unsure where we are in terms of versions.

    I found the following:

    radeditor.net2.dll version 7.2.0.0
    telerik.web.ui.dll version 2008.2.826.20
    telerik.web.ui.dll version 2009.2.826.35
    telerik.web.design.dll version 2009.2.826.35

    So, basically, I'm evaluating whether or not we can take everything that references one or more of these dll's and upgrade them to the latest Telerik for ASP.NET AJAX.  Obviously this will have to be tested, but I need to give a report indicating what likely hurdles we are going to face.  If possible, I'd like to get all of the solutions using a single version, the latest.

    Hi Robert,

    According to the listed DLLs and versions that are referenced in your project, it seems that you are using RadEditor Classic and RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX - the AJAX suite is combined in a single DLL. However, I am not quite sure how you have referenced two different versions of Telerik.Web.UI.dll.

    Regarding upgrading RadControls for ASP.NET version you can find e detailed tutorial in the following KB article:
    Updating RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX to another version or license

    In general the latest version should be fully compatible with the 2009.2.826.35 one, except for few breaking changes which may or may not affect your application.

    If you are planning to swap the classic editor that is used currently with its AJAX version you can follow the guidance from this help article:
    Migration from RadEditor Classic to RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX
