I have an ASP.NET solution that uses Telerik UI MVC 2018.2.620

I want to upgrade it to use Telerik UI MVC 2023.2.718

I installed Telerik UI MVC 2023.2.718, and then reinstalled Telerik UI MVC 2018.2.620

I don't have an Upgrade option to upgrade the solution.  How can I use to upgrade tool to upgrade the solution?

Hi Chris,

As we have already discussed in your support ticket thread, we will need some more details to locate what is causing the described problematic behavior by your side.

Could you please try to perform the steps below and share with us some more details that could help us to further investigate it:
  1. Using theConvert Project Wizard to update your project - Could you please try to remove the main UI for ASP.NET MVC assembly (Kendo.Mvc.dll) from your project, then right-click on its name and check if the Convert To Telerik Application option menu is available? If yes, please try to convert your project by selecting the latest UI for ASP.NET MVC version.
  2. Reinstall the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC VS extensions - in case the Convert wizard does not solve the issue, could you please try to reinstall our VS Extensions directly from the Visual Studio Online gallery (Extensions -> Manage Extensions menu)? Please, first remove the current extension completely and then download and install it again.
  3. Send us your project file - Could you please zip and send us your project file? This will help us to try to recreate the issue on our side.

I would like to ask you to continue our discussion in this forum post so as to be available for other customers that may face such issues. Could you please close the other thread, as well?

Thank you for your understanding.

Regards,

1. After removing the Kendo DLL, the Convert to Telerik Application option was available.  I ran the tool and it did install the JS and CS files, but it didn't appear to update any existing references to JS and CSS files to the new install folders created by the tool.

2. I also tried uninstalling and re-installing the Telerik extensions.  The Upgrade option still does not appear on the extension menu,

3. Where should I send the Solution/Project file?

Hi Chris,

During our discussion, we have received multiple complaints about the missing commands in the latest version of the Progress Visual Studio extensions. We are currently working on fixing the issue and we are planning to release it with our next release.

While waiting for the fixed version to be released you could workaround this by using the previous version of the Progress Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Extension contained in the archive attached to this message. You'll also need to disable the automatic update for this extension so it doesn't automatically get updated to the latest version again.

Please follow these steps:
  1. Uninstall the currently installed version of the Progress Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Extension
  2. Download and unpack the attached archive TelerikUI.Mvc.VSPackage.X64.zip
  3. Run the TelerikUI.Mvc.VSPackage.X64.vsix and follow the VSIX installer wizard to install the previous version of the extension
  4. Start Visual Studio and open Extensions -> Manage Extensions
  5. Select Installed section in the right pane
  6. Find the Progress Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Extension in the middle pane and click on it
  7. Disable the "Automatically update this extension" checkbox in the right pane
  8. Try to use our Upgrade wizard which will help you to update the main assembly and all the resources in your project

However, after the fix of the issue is released, we strongly recommend the "Automatically update this extension" checkbox state to be changed again to selected

When it comes to your project, you could add the project file to a zip archive and share it via a file-sharing of your choice or use this shared folder. Please bear in mind that the link will be available till the end of the next working week (8/4/2023).

Thank you for your cooperation.
