I recently upgraded one of our projects to a more recent version but it had issues, so I downgraded it to a previous version (2011Q1).

One of my programmers here did not have Q1 on his computer so I told him to install and when he tries he receives a message saying he has a more recent version installed and the install stops.

Is there a way to install a previous version of the controls?

I know different version can live on the same machine, my currently computer has the last 4 versions (plus a few versions of Radcontrols for ASP.Net). But I've upgraded all versions in the right order, not installed a previous version in the middle.

Thanks

Hello Alex,

Thanks for writing.

It is possible to install previous version of a product, if you don't have a newer minor update already installed on the machine (you can read more about minor and major updates here). In other words, if your programmer have the Q1 2011 SP1 release, he/she won't be able to install the Q1 2011 release.

If you have clean machine, it's not problem to install Q1 2012, Q3 2011 and then Q2 2011 (in this order), because these are all major releases and they could be installed in parallel.

I hope this information is helpful. Let me know if the problem persists.

Kind regards,
Chavdar,

Hello Doug,

Could you be more specific about the version of controls and Visual Studio you want to integrate? Thanks.

It would be so refreshing if we could get a straight answer from Telerik.  The question is: How do you downgrade or roll-back to an earlier version of Rad Controls?  Instead of all this gobbly-gook about minor and major updates, couldn't we just get a checklist?

Hello John,

The easiest way to manage the installed versions of our products and install old versions is through the Telerik Control Panel. You can take a look at the following blog post which describes how to manage the different installed versions of a product through the Telerik Control Panel - http://www.telerik.com/blogs/by-popular-demand-control-panel-introduces-installing-other-versions-of-products.

I hope this helps.

Momchil

This seems to no longer be an option in Control Panel.

What other way can I install a specific version ?

Hi Stephen,

The View Old Versions option is still available in the Progress Control Panel. For your convenience, I recorded a short video demonstrating how to access this feature inside the Control Panel as well as in the downloads section under your Telerik.com account.

Thanks for that but it's showing when you have already installed a product how to select a different version.

I want ONLY the product version I need.

So you want me to install the current release AND the version I want later ?

That's not cool .. I only want the specific versions so nothing get upgraded automatically and such

I am here ...

I agree with you that the View All Versions option of the Control panel duplicates the functionality of the Downloads section of the Telerik account and lists the already downloaded/installed versions of the selected product:

Your question is valid and I referred the question to the relevant product team supporting the Control Panel.

I also noticed your other tickets on the matter and we will try to answer them as soon as possible.

Tell me how to use the NuGet server to get the specific versions I want.

When I use Visual Studio to browse the NuGet server no search results are shown from the Telerik server.

Please follow the steps tutorial I recorded for your convenience.

The search string is "telerik.ui.for.aspnet.ajax".

Could it be that you are searching only in the public nuget.org server?

The Telerik nuget files are hosted on the Telerik private server - https://nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json as explained in the documentation - Add the Telerik NuGet Feed to Visual Studio.

Please follow the instructions at https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/troubleshooting/nuget-feed#i-do-not-see-the-telerik-packages and remove saved credentials in Windows Credential Manager. If there are no credentials try to create a new instance of the Telerik server and enter the credentials which are required to see the files.

Just did all that ... still not luck finding the first assembly .. Telerik.Web.Design ... same results as previously

Telerik.Web.Design is part of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX assemblies. It is not available standalone but as part of the Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.Ajax.Net40 installation. If you install it you'll get all of the main ajax assemblies like  Telerik.Web.UI.dll, Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll, Telerik.Web.Design.dll and Telerik.Web.Device.Detection.dll. The Telerik.Web.Design.dll and Telerik.Web.Device.Detection.dll are optional and the app can function without them. If the Default skin is used you also do not need the Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll assembly but only the Telerik.Web.UI.dll one. 

The following article provides detailed info for the different assemblies in the Telerik AJAX suite: Included Assemblies.

On a side note something related to your tickets: The installation of Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX consists of the following main assemblies Telerik.Web.UI.dll, Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll, Telerik.Web.Design.dll and Telerik.Web.Device.Detection.dll). All of them are built on the same date and have identical versions in the release. In your case, the release is R2 2020 SP1 and their version is 2020.2.617.45. We do not distribute Telerik.Web.UI.dll, Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll, Telerik.Web.Design.dll and Telerik.Web.Device.Detection.dll assemblies with a different version as 2020.2.615 for R2 2020 SP1. Their official version for R3 2020 SP1 is 2020.2.617.

The assemblies of the Document Processing Library for R2 2020 SP1 are built earlier than the Telerik.Web.UI.dll, Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll, Telerik.Web.Design.dll, and Telerik.Web.Device.Detection.dll ones and have a different version 2020.2.615.40, but this is fine, expected, and by design.

So I ask again .. how do I get the versions I need to maintain the code, compile  and deploy without changing the server runtimes?

I'm not going to deploy new runtimes ...

Please allow me to take over for my colleague Rumen as his working hours have ended.

I noticed in the screenshots that the NuGet Package search value is telerik.web. This does produce the same results as noted in the following images. 

However, if the search input is changed to ui.for.aspnet the desired package results will be presented as shown in the following screenshot.
