Is it possible to install multiple versions of the ASP.NET Ajax Telerik Controls on the same machine?
I have installed 2013 Q3 Net 40 but want to install a version from 2011. Our projects are using 2011 and the team does not want to update to 2013.

Generally the contents of the toolbox are related to the .NET version of the project you have loaded. Creating a website targetting .NET 2.0 will populate toolbox items for .NET 2.0.
If you have installed the latest version opening a .NET 3.5 or .NET 4.0 site will have the Q3 2013
RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX populated in the toolbox. When you open a different website if you do not see the old version of the RadControls you can open the toolbox, right click on it, click on Choose Items and from .NET components Browse to the needed Telerik.Web.UI assembly so that it is added to the toolbox.
Just make sure the Target Framework of th site is set to .NET 2.0 in the Property Pages -> Build tab of the site.
What I would advise to facilitate this switch is that you close VisualStudio to allow it to unload the assemblies from the previous site before opening the next.
The best approach would be to upgrade all projects to the recent version of the RadControls to benefit from the fixes and features that are incorporated in them for the past year.
