Dear all,

I just installed VS2022 on a machine where VS2019 is already present along with UI for Winforms added via the Progress Control Center.

I am wondering how to tell Progress Control Center to also add it to VS2022 while keeping it in VS2019.

- Is this possible and how ?

- or should I  use another way than the control center ?

or do I have to uninstall VS2019 first (again same machine) ?

I would like to keep both installs until I am confident enough with the 2022 version.

Many thanks for your answers

Hello, Patrick,

During the installation process of the Telerik UI for WinForms suite, it checks the Visual Studio version(s) installed on the machine. Then, it installs/adds all Telerik WinForms controls in the toolbox of Visual Studio. If VS 2022 is installed later, it is expected that the WinForms controls wouldn't be added to the toolbox.

The easiest and clean solution that I can suggest is to uninstall the existing Telerik WinForms version from Windows Control Panel. Once it is done, feel free to install it again. Now, both Visual Studio versions are expected to be detected by the installer and add the controls to the respective toolbox.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
