    I wanted to ask about the installer for Telerik msi installer for visual studio 2010 that is used for web ajax applications. Last year I installed the latest Telerik download for an Ajax web application since the application is using the radedior that Telerik created. Now I am getting a message from the telerik when I open Visual Studio 2010 to work on the 2010 application. The message says that there is a new download that is available.

    To accomplish this task, the administrator at my company will download the new msi installer for me.

    However my question is do I need to uninstall the Telerik update that I placed on my workstation last year before I install the new Telerik download? I am asking that question since I am wondering if both updates can execute on the same computer?

    Thus can you tell me if I need to uninstall the original update I placed on my workstation last year before I install the new Telerik download msi installer? Bascially what directions should I be following?

    Hi Diane,

    No, you shouldn't need to uninstall the old version. Since the old version is from the last year then the latest version will come as a new Major version and our Major versions can coexist at the same time on the same machine. You can read more about the Telerik Major and Minor releases at
    You could also check the following documentation resources which might help you with the installation and upgrade process of Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX: You could also check for instructions on how to use the Telerik ASP.NET AJAX VSExtensions Upgrade Wizard to make your project to use the new version of the product.

    Please let us know if further assistance is needed.
