Hi,

I refer to the three telerik.dll(Telerik.WinControls.dll / Telerik.WinControls.UI.dll / TelerikCommon.dll) for adding Radribbon UI.
Now I should make msi file for installing and testing on other computers.

I just added three dll file on the msi project, and I installed this file on other computer.
After install process, I ran my application and failed process before load ribbon form.

I think my msi file have some problem about telerik dll files.
What should I do for add dll file in msi file? Do I need any setting about registry?

Do you have any suggestions about that? Actually I didn't use msi file before. 
Please let me know, how to add telerik dll..


P.S This msi run normally on my computer.(I installed radcontrols for winforms on my desktop.)
       However it is not a situation what I want.

Regards,

Hello JANG KYUNG SEOC,

Thank you for contacting us. There is nothing special about the installation of Telerik dlls. Actually our installation is an msi that do that. I did a test -- I create a new Setup project in Visual Studio in the same solution of one small Telerik based project. Setup automatically included the three dependencies: Telerik.WinControls.dll, Telerik.WinControls.UI.dll and TelerikCommon.dll files. This test setup was installed successful on clean machine with Windows 2000. I attached the test project with the installation. I hope this helps.

Greetings,

Thank you for your answer,

However when I opened TestTelerikSetup.vdproj on vs2005. I could not find some files for making project.
Because of them I could not build this project also. I think you dropped some file for this project.(The error message is <cannot check the name>.,,actually I am not sure the original message, because of my vs ver(korean version.))

I am waiting your answer.

Hi JANG KYUNG SEOC,

This project is only a sample one that demonstrates installation of our dlls. There is nothing special about the installation of Telerik dlls -- they are ordinary .net dll having srtong names. You can very easily create a similar project with any version of visual studio from scratch. Here is an article how to do that.

All the best,
Peter
