I'm stuck big time. I have a SharePoint 2007 server with the Rad Editor installed fine. We are trying to get a SharePoint 2010 server up and running with our 2007 content DB. 

We created a new VM Server, installed SP 2010 and configured to a working default state just fine. I think where I may have gone wrong is following my configuration documents (for 2007), which included installing AJAX 2.0 along with deploying the RadEditorMoss.wsp, along with all the requisite web.config entries.

As soon as I completed that configuratoin/installation procedure (which I believe is S.O.P for SP 2007) when I went to browse to the new SP site, I get a 500 "Internal Server Error, There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed". When I remove the RadEditorMoss.wsp package and remove the config entries, the site loads again, but any content that was created with RadEditor does not show up. In my case I have an Article site... Titles, image and such ARE available and can be seen with a CQWP, but the actual content created inside the RadEditor is blank and the article page itself throws an error when you try to view it.

My next thought was to try and install the RadControls for 2010. I downloaded and installed the Telerik.Web.UI_2010_2_929_Dev.msi package, which from what I could tell would add the requisite .dll files to the GAC as well as the <SafeControlentries into the web.config and all it seemed to do was give me the 'live examples' application. 

Should I remove all the extra Ajax/RadEditor stuff from the server/config file? (which I have tried to no avail). 

All I wish to do is to make the content and RadEditor work again in my 2010 server. I'm stuck and would appreciate any help from the form I can get.

Thanks again. Please let me know what other information would be relevant in troubleshooting.

Hi EricLand,

Here is what need to be done.

1. You need to be sure that AJAX .NET 3.5 is enabled in the SharePoint 2010 site. This is the default setting.
2. Make sure that you know with versions of RadEditor for MOSS you have been using. This will be needed in order to use the webparts.
3. Uninstall all versions of RadEditor for MOSS.
4. Install RadControls for SharePoint 2010:

5. Add a SafeControl element for each version of RadEditorSharePoint, which you have been using. For example, you were using the latest version of RadEditor fro MOSS, which is 5.8.2:
<SafeControlAssembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed"Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint"TypeName="*"Safe="True"/>

6. Add dependentAssembly element in the assemblyBinding section. For example:
