    We identified several issues with our new Upgrade Wizard shortly after our Q2 2011 release.

    The following circumstances are known to cause issues when using the Upgrade Wizard:

    • Having any invalid references in your project (marked with a warning sign in Visual Studio)
    • Having COM references in your project
    • Holding a project reference to a project which has not yet been built
    • Holding a project reference to a project whose output assembly name differs from the project's name


    All of the above issues have already been addressed and an update has been released through the Visual Studio Online Gallery:
    Telerik WinForms VSExtensions

    You should be able to use the Visual Studio 2010 Extension Manager to download the update.

    In case you are using Visual Studio 2008 and cannot get updates through the Visual Studio Online Gallery, you will be able to benefit the update when our next Service Pack release.

    Best regards,
    The Telerik Team

    Still doesn't work for me when I try to do a "Convert to Telerik Web Site". I even uninstalled and reinstalled VSExtensions...

    Error Message when I click "Finish":
    "Error executing custom action Telerik.Web.UI.VSX.Actions.UpdateReferencesAction: The given assembly name or codebase is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131047)."

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Eric,

    We just found out that the fix does not work properly with WebSite projects, it supports Web Application ones only.
    We are working on having a proper fix for the SP1 release, scheduled for the end of the next week.

    Please, bear with us some more.

    Kind regards,
