    I've asked about old version & new version compatibility before. Please see link:

    We are using the old & new version controls in one project and it seems to work well. But I have a new concern about the skin and scripts:
    In 2007 Q1, we need to copy the folder RadControls to the root of the web application, which contains all the skin and scripts files. In 2008 Q2, we are not asked to copy any folder and it works fine. But how about we want to deploy this project to other machine? Do we need to copy any skin & script folder for 2008 Q2 to work properly? Will this folder effect 2007 Q1's function?

    Hi Darren,

    If I understand you correctly, just keep the old RadControls folder for the old controls you are still using, and don't worry about the Skins folder for the new controls as they are embedded in the .dll.

    Unless of course you want to use custom skins, then you have to make sure they are present in the Skins folder.

    @Daniel: Thank you for your valuable clarification.

    @Darren: As Daniel properly noticed you don't need to embed the mentioned folder because all needed resources are already integrated into assembly.

    Please note that registering two skins with the same name for different versions of RadControls is likely to cause problems. It is strongly recommended that you rename one of the skins (it will be easier to rename the classic control's skin, because it is not embedded).
