       I have been away from telerik for a while and now i am back. I am wondering the proper way to handle the following:
    1 - On my current development machines, I am currently on:
         Telerik Reporting
         Telerik.Web.Design dll 2009.2.826.35
         I am trying to upgrade to the most current version of Rad Ajax and Reporting. Do i just download and install RadControlsForAspNetAjaxControlPanal_2012_2_607.exe and Telerik_Reporting_Control_Panel_Q2_2012_v6_1_12_611.exe over these? 
    2 - Where does RadControls_Q1_2009_Dev_last_update.msi come in to play?

    3 - I have a new lap top that does NOT have any telerik on it. But I need to be able to run my 2009.2.826.35 telerik code until i bring this new lap top up to the latest telerik version. How do i download and install this  2009.2.826.35 version, and do i need to consider hot fixes? OR, should i just install the current version of telerik. 

    4 - Is there someplace i can go to see the "what and why" of how my Web.config needs to look. 

    thanks for your time

    Hello David,

    Thank you for writing.

    To upgrade to the latest version you can use one of the tools you mentioned (e.g. RadControlsForAspNetAjaxControlPanal_2012_2_607.exe) because they both launch the new Telerik Control Panel. With the aid of this tool you can install the latest version of RadControl for ASP.NET AJAX and Telerik Reporting.

    After you have installed the latest versions you can use the Upgrade Wizard for upgrading the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX projects. Regarding the Reporting projects, please, follow in instructions in the following article.

    For setting up an environment with the 2009.2.826.35 version you should download the Q2 2009 SP1 versions and perform a pure install on your machine (no hotfixes should be considered). Here are the links of the previous versions pages for ease:
    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX
    Telerik Reporting

    I hope this will help. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
